Interview

I was very disappointed, I expected more from a company like GE. Oh well. I didn't get the second interview unfortunately.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Potsdam, NY (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    An HR manager and an engineering manager interviewed me at my campus during Fall career fair. Relatively simple interview. A few generic questions were asked about my skills set, they offered an opportunity during the interview for me to ask questions (so come prepared). Since my background is Applied Math & statistics, I've only taken a handful of engineering courses; that being said, the technical questions in this interview were a minimum, but directed more toward how my degree could cater to engineering roles.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Louisville, KY (US)) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had on-site interview at their Louisville office. There were 6 interviews (5 technical, 1 HR). All of them 1:1. People were all very nice and knowledgeable about their product and process.
    As far as interview questions, everyone asked more less the same behavioral questions. I should have prepared for these predictable questions.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Niskayuna, NY (US)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Lab manager sent me an email after submitting resume through GE website for about 2 weeks. He asked to describe the research work on my resume. One week later I got a rejection letter. I believe the reason is that he is looking for a more experienced person even though the job is for entry level.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship, GE contacted me about a week later saying that they have reviewed my CV and invited me to take SHL Talent Measurement tests.

    I had about a week to complete the tests, they were mainly personality and situation judgement tests.

    The following days I was contacted again saying I would get I phone interview and I had to email with the date and time I was available from a schedule they gave me.

    The phone interview was motivational and competency based. The phone interview is the 2nd stage of the hiring process and it's made mainly by an outsourcing company, therefore you won't get an offer directly after the interview.
