    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at General Motors (Detroit, MI (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    My profile was on gm site for a job in the Arizona area. A recruiter called me about a position in Detroit. Got to the airport, and they booked me on a later flight. Had to wait at airport for 6 hours. Interview was a all day event. Started at 8 am. As soon as I got there, I was drilled with questions until I left. Spent time interviewing with probably 10 people. The people in Detroit seemed grumpy and unpleasant, not friendly like in Denver. Worst experience ever.
