    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at General Motors in March 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, the GM recruiter contacted me by calling and emailing at the same time. I responded to their email, as I don't answer unknown or unexpected calls. I gave him my available times, but did not here back from him when he planned on calling. Seems they don't usually give you a heads up, which only leads to missed calls and frustration. Finally touched base and had the usual phone interview. Be prepared to walk through your resume, have a good answer for why you want the job, etc.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Had the interview on-campus after a week from submitting an application . The interview was mainly behavioral, one technical question was asked about the System development life cycle. Questions had to be answered in a specific structure, but as a student with only an internship and academic examples, many questions required me to repeatedly use a limited amount of examples. 3 weeks later I received a generic denial e-mail.

    Interview

    1:1 interview, questions about how you overcome challenges but answers are expected to be in relation to IT/ building websites and such. Questions about back end server work and inner and outer joins were more memorable questions that I remember. The guy that was interviewing me was all business.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview. One on one or two on one. Check other questions on glassdoor as well as the ones I have listed (were not on glassdoor). Friendly interviewers in my experience. Most interviews accompanied by a tour. It has been a couple of days and I have not heard back from them either way; will update when I get notice.

    Interview

    The entire interview was 5 hours long. I interviewed with 2 different managers from the same department, and each interview lasted about one hour. The remainder of the time was spent visiting some of the facilities. Both managers were knowledgeable and very pleasant to talk to. The interview focused on my past experience and how I handled different situations.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and received an email and phone call within 1 day.
    Interviews:
    - Phone screen with the lead recruiter.
    - Phone screen with another recruiter.
    - Phone interview with team lead.
    - Phone interview with hiring manager.
    - Phone interview with senior manager.

    This interviews seemed to go well. I was requested to come in for an in-person interview. Out of the blue this was cancelled with no explanation.

    Overall, the entire process and communication seemed dis-jointed.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at General Motors (Pontiac, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very behavorial type questions. Had two parts of the interview and each one was one on one. Not intimidating at all, just need to have experiences where the questions apply. Everything was paid for, the hotel, the travel. I got a tour of the factory too, it was great. The people were very friendly.
