    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring Process Took around 3 weeks.
    I was 1st contacted by a GM recruiter where he did a screening to see if I was qualified outside of my resume. Afterwards in 5 days I interviewed with the hiring manager in Detroit via the phone. Questions were very direct and the manager knew who/what he was looking for in a candidate. I think had a face to face via Virtual Webcam with Hiring Manager and supervisor. Both sessions were 1 hour long. Finally Hiring manager advised me a decision would be made in about 3 business days. I then got a call back in about 1 hour offering me the job. Seamless process with a great company that knew who and what they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All standard questions for the business analyst profession.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Didn't have to negotiate. Offer was well above my asking so I was very satisfied.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Atlanta, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview that was technical...lasted an hour. In person interview followed a couple of weeks later. Company overview with an HR person followed by two interviews with managers...about an hour each. As others have mentioned this was more about how you handle different situations...no real technical questions. Nice office space, nice people, but everyone is fairly new. It's hard to tell what the things will be like over the next couple of years.
