    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors in April 2014.

    Interview

    Big emphasis on behavioral / Lominger in addition to technical questions based on specific work experiences
    - 1st round, with recruiter (on phone)
    - 2nd round, panel with management, details on the position (video interview but surprisingly comfortable)
    - 3rd round, in person visit, 1:1 with manager and future colleagues, tour around campus

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They did not entertain and try to make you feel bad for asking. Found it quite rude actually.

    Interview

    I applied online under the section for new grads. I was first contacted by the university rep to set up the first phone interview. The phone interview was pretty straight forward about what you have done. I was then invited to the proving grounds for an onsite interview. The interview was structured so that you would explain each situation, what you did and your result. I was phoned only two days later with a notice that they were going to extend an offer

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors (Pontiac, MI) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Recieved a call from HR within a couple weeks of submitting resume. Recieved a call to come in for an interview shortly after that. The interview consisted of a half hour informational presentation and two one on one interviews conducted back to back. I really enjoyed the interview process. Be prepared to negotiate if they come back with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational questions. Very straight forward, nothing technical. Interviewers were very friendly. Entire interview process (including facility tour and lunch) was about 5 hours.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Recieved a better offer elsewhere and felt that GM was trying to see how cheap I would work
