GE FMP Interview

GE FMP
Fairfield, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE in March 2014.

Interview Details – The company came to my school for first round interviews. The interviewer, who was from HR, was very friendly and informing about the position and the FMP program in general. The interview went smoothly but unfortunately it came across that I was more interested in banking (hence my preference for a GE Capital Placement). That being said, I was able to explain the difference between GE Capital and a traditional bank. Overall I do not feel that I was the candidate that GE was looking for for the FMP Program.

Interview Question – Considering that the interview was with HR, there were no technical questions. Questions included your typical fit questions that you can find in any interview guide.   Answer Question
