    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Detroit, MI (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview. One on one or two on one. Check other questions on glassdoor as well as the ones I have listed (were not on glassdoor). Friendly interviewers in my experience. Most interviews accompanied by a tour. It has been a couple of days and I have not heard back from them either way; will update when I get notice.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you had to make a decision based on incomplete data.(Dealing with ambiguity)
      Tell me about a time when you had to motivate someone from a different culture than you.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    On Campus (University) interview process. Very straightforward process with many behavioral questions. Asked about previous projects, interests in GM, why GM etc. Asked to describe projects and how they relate to work at GM. Interviews all done using the STAR method. Initial stage was something of a screening step, then asked to interview with managers. Managers conduct the interview and describe the STAR method. They even provide a rubric. The managers are quite nice, very straight forward and helpful throughout the process.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors in April 2014.

    Interview

    Big emphasis on behavioral / Lominger in addition to technical questions based on specific work experiences
    - 1st round, with recruiter (on phone)
    - 2nd round, panel with management, details on the position (video interview but surprisingly comfortable)
    - 3rd round, in person visit, 1:1 with manager and future colleagues, tour around campus

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They did not entertain and try to make you feel bad for asking. Found it quite rude actually.

    Interview

    I applied online under the section for new grads. I was first contacted by the university rep to set up the first phone interview. The phone interview was pretty straight forward about what you have done. I was then invited to the proving grounds for an onsite interview. The interview was structured so that you would explain each situation, what you did and your result. I was phoned only two days later with a notice that they were going to extend an offer
