Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through college or university and interviewed at General Motors.

Interview Details – I initially found out about the opportunity to work for GM during a university job fair. It was one of the easier interview processes that I've been a part of. It was just a lot of situational questions. I only had one interview then I heard back several weeks later. The company seems to be trying to greatly expand their IT department over the next few years.

Interview Question – What was your least favorite class?   Answer Question
