    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Overall not encouraging. Recruiter called few times gathering same details. After few weeks of back and forth communication, phone screening was scheduled. Interviewer started asking system design questions borrowed from a book. When he was not satisfied with explanation, wrapped up the call.

    Interview Questions

    • Design Parking Lot. This was asked in phone screening. Few weeks later I learnt, this problem is from one of interview preparation books. Seriously..! Can't they come up with any realistic questions based on candidate's experience, rather than borrowing questions from a book.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and 6 weeks later received email from recruiter to setup a phone screen.
    After speaking with recruiter for 30 minutes, a second phone screen was setup for technical.
    Passed technical and was invited to their San Ramon campus for afternoon interviews with 8.
    Arrived on time to their office and greeted by recruiter who was polite throughout day.

    After that things went downhill:
    1) Wasted 30 minutes trying to find an interview room. We found a narrow passageway
    what could have been a janitorial storage room.
    2) The dry erase markers were near empty and the white board was filthy from past interviews.
    3) The workers walking past looked stressed out.
    4) Spoke with only 1 Caucasian engineer, everyone else was foreign born and likely H1B visas.
    5) Managers and Directors were all rude and condescending. What did I do wrong?
    6) Their tech guy started asking me questions on a project I did only once.
    7) Their tech guy never asked me about my 10 years of platform experience.
    8) Insinuated I did not know how to code and I had to correct employee in my defense.

    Overall, a big waste of a great Sunny day better spent interviewing a common sense employer.
    What amazes me is I know more about GE business than interviewers who only know how to talk.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely slow recruitment process. 4 weeks after applying online recruiter contacted and asked about techical skills. Another 3 week wait for 45 minute phone screen. No response after that. Very difficult - all technical questions. Questions about c++ which didnt make sense in a .net interview. The interviewer seemed to read from their long list..very little time to think.

    Interview Questions

    • All sorts of techical questions - C#.net, data structures, sql/normalization, SOAP..etc.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Oklahoma City, OK (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Team fit was the most important aspect and the technical questions were more about process than architecture or standards. OOP wasn't discussed. Most of the topics were based on tools used.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted fast after submitted resume online. After phone interview, on-site was scheduled quickly. 5 persons each with 45 minutes interviewed. Most of interviewers just focused on the language details. One architecture asked overall system architecture of components. Not exactly sure what he wanted to hear. And last interviewer just directly brought a laptop and had me coding 4 programs in 45 minutes and they should be runnable and had unit testing cases....

    Interview Questions

    • Java languages details such executor.. But engineer can't clearly state the questions...   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GE (Houston, TX (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Nothing technical. I got an impression that the management that interviewed me knew themselves what they needed. Just asked several questions about my previous experiences and asked questions that had shown their lack of technical expertise and amateurish approach.
