    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GE (London, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive experience, I applied online, in a few days there was an invitation to complete 3 online assessments and after that an invitation to telephone interview. During the telephone interview all the expected things were asked, why I chose this position, what I know about GE and its values, to describe one of my strenghts etc. Generally having seen the reviews on here I was prepared for everything, nothing came out of the blue and I found it relatively easy. The interviewer was very friendly as well. I was sent an email that I was shortlisted for face to face interviews, so the application process hasn't completed yet.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE.

    Interview

    I had to submit a CV and covering letter and a few online questions. I was informed that I got through to the next stage and I had to do three online situational tests, which were pretty straightforward. I was offered a telephone interview. It was in three parts (general questions, motivational questions and competency questions). The questions were as follows:

    1) What degree are you doing? Where would be your preferred location? Are you available to start working between June and August 2015? Are you proficient at Word, Excel and Powerpoint?

    2) Why do you want to work at GE? Why have you chosen the Financial Risk Programme? What have you learnt about GE? Who are our main competitors?

    3) Talk about a time when you were in a difficult situation and how did you overcome it? What were your aims? What was the feedback you got from this?

    Talk about a time when you taught yourself a new language or skill. How did you go about doing this?

    Interview Questions

    • Who are GE's main competitors? I literally had no clue how to answer this question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation
