    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GE in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found job advertisement on the GE site applied with a standard CV and covering letter. Shortly after I was invited to complete online physcometric test, this consisted of a series of business scenarios and choosing out of four potential responses, what would be the most and least effective.

    A few days later they scheduled a telephone interview with me, it consisted of motivational and competency based questions as well as asking me to talk about my degree and IT skills.

    The questions that I remember were as follows:
    - Why do you want to work for GE ?
    - Can you give an example when you have faced a problem in a project and how you resolved it ?
    - Can you give an example of when you have had to learn a new skill ?
     I'm sure there was one more competency question but can't remember it.

    I was very confident in my performance in the interview but unfortunately they did not continue with my application.

    Interview Questions
    • I was expecting them to ask why I wanted to work in this position but they only asked about wanting to work for GE which I was expecting but had done more research into the specific position and plant I would be woking in rather than GE as a hole.   Answer Question

The following week I was invited to a (first) face-to-face interview with an Engineering Manager and Design Engineer at GE Intelligent Platforms. The interview process consisted of a number of questions about me, and some technical questions. The interview lasted about an hour. A third person, a mechanical engineer at GE, was also present.

They asked me to tell them about myself, why I was interested, what I thought the job would ask of me, what I knew about the business area.
