    Interview Details

    the process started with a behavioral interview. The interviewer seemed interested but rushed at the same time like he had heard it all before. There were only three questions and it seemed like it didn't really get the entire picture.

    Interview Details

    Two round process -- first is basic focusing on behaviors a lot of "Tell me about a time you had an assignment but didn't know how to proceed ...." Not a black/white or right/wrong but how you approached the situation. Second round is repetitive but does includes technical proficiency.

    Interview Details

    Met at career fair and the recruiter was very nice and easy to talk to. Was invited for an interview the next morning on campus. Interview isn't extremely hard but not easy either. They ask you 3 different situational questions and what you learned, how you reacted, etc about each situation.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    On Campus (University) interview process. Very straightforward process with many behavioral questions. Asked about previous projects, interests in GM, why GM etc. Asked to describe projects and how they relate to work at GM. Interviews all done using the STAR method. Initial stage was something of a screening step, then asked to interview with managers. Managers conduct the interview and describe the STAR method. They even provide a rubric. The managers are quite nice, very straight forward and helpful throughout the process.

    Software Developer? Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roswell, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roswell, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out a pre-application at a career, didnt think much of it. A week or so later I got an email telling me to show up at 7:45 the next morning for a "final interview". I guess they like you to be unprepared. They showed us the typical, "Look, dont you want to work for us?" presentation, then we had interviews with two people. The first guy I got was pretty unpleasant. I really just think he thought I was "weird" and didn't like me. Anyway, he asked a series of your typical bs interview questions, and they demand that you answer them in a rigid series of steps, and if a step didn't apply to your answer, I guess that was just seen as a failing on your part. He acted as if he couldn't comprehend my answers and wrote my answers down in a way that made me look bad, then refused to correct them. I felt like walking out of that interview, and I wish I had.
    The second guy I talked to was very nice and asked a couple of easy questions.
    That night, I was informed via email that I needed to apply to all the jobs I was interested in. Because applying after an interview makes perfect sense.
    Needless to say, within a week or two, I got a generic, "don't feel there's a strong match" email.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing that unexpected. Just imagine the worst questions from one of those books of interview questions, and an unsympathetic jerk sitting across from you.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    3 Phone interviews:
    Mostly behavioral questions. The executives are very defensive about GM products.
    The interviews went great except for the one with the Finance executive. I asked her why doesn't GM offers any mini-vans and she got defensive. She wasn't happy with the question even though I thought it was a legit question.
