.NET Software Developer - Sales and Marketing Interview

.NET Software Developer - Sales and Marketing
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

Interview Details – Phone Interview - This was with the Lead Developer on the team. As others have mentioned, the STAR methodology is used heavily. Very few technical questions, and those asked were fairly basic (Describe the MVC pattern, what is viewstate used for, how would you select only 10 rows in SQL Server).

In-Person Interview - Received an invite for in-person interview shortly after phone interview. Before meeting with interviewers, I was greeted by an HR person who took myself and another applicant to a conference room to watch an intro video about GM. Not sure what it was about the HR person, but he wore me out after listening to him for 15-20 minutes. The video was pretty a much a sales pitch for working at GM.

After the video, I was taken into a small room and interviewed 1-on-1 with a hiring manager. Again, behaviorial questions were asked, very few tech questions. Hiring manager didn't seem interested right from the start -- made me think he was going through the motions and already had a candidate selected.

Second interview was with another hiring manager. He asked very similar questions to the first interviewer and also asked about my experience using certain JavaScript frameworks - Durandal, Node, JQuery, etc.

All-in-all, it was a fairly comfortable experience. Didn't feel like I was being "grilled", as is the technique for many other companies hiring developers.

Interview Question – Tell me about a project where part or all of the project had to be reworked or scrapped.   View Answer

Several Interview

Several
Lansing, MI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at General Motors in April 2014.

Interview Details – Pleasant interviewers (4 in two sessions) but they read questions prepared by a consulting/testing company that usually causes qualified candidates to be rejected. Same stubborn, muleheaded company that went bankrupt before.

Interview Question – If you told a lie and were called on it, how would you react?   View Answer

Senior Software Developer – Data Integration Interview

Senior Software Developer – Data Integration
North Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview that was technical...lasted an hour. In person interview followed a couple of weeks later. Company overview with an HR person followed by two interviews with managers...about an hour each. As others have mentioned this was more about how you handle different situations...no real technical questions. Nice office space, nice people, but everyone is fairly new. It's hard to tell what the things will be like over the next couple of years.

Interview Question – What would I do differently in a difficult situation that I had just described where I was unhappy with the outcome?   View Answer
