    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    When GM was first building up their IT in 2012, they were hiring fast and furiously. You would first receive a phone interview, and then a 1x1 interview with 3 different managers (none of which that might actually be the manager you end up with). GM requires the use of the Lominger Interview process, which does not really get into technical questions that are specific to the job. Additionally, it was not uncommon for GM to "reassign" you to another position or team than what was originally advertised; consequently, many new hires (specifically, college hires) would end up in an area that they might not have any experience or interest in.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    They had two people interview me, it lasted around 2 hours. I believe it was 45 minutes for each individual and the last minutes left to ask questions. They had packets to with a ton of questions to ask me about, so that was the reason the interview took so long.

    Interview Questions
    • It was most behavioral questions that focused on teamwork. They are looking for people that can work in a team. Most difficult question: "How did you deal with someone that was not doing their work? How did you handle the situation? What would you change?"   Answer Question

    The hiring process began on campus at a career fair. I spoke with a GM representative for 5-10 minutes one-on-one and she advised me to complete an online application. A couple of weeks after the career fair, I was invited to participate in an on campus interview. Two months after completing the on campus interview, I was invited to have a final interview at the GM Technical Center. After the final interview, I was made an offer over the phone first and then via email.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about 2 weeks from initial phone screening to on-site interview. Interview was behavioral focused (situations/actions/lessons learned) with technical questions thrown in at the end. Overall the interview process was quite easy.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't the questions so much, but the fact that for each area or behavior, there was a series of 3 questions that you could choose to answer. This made it difficult to keep the conversation flow as by the time you heard the third question; you'd then forgotten what the first option was.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    My process started with a resume drop at a career fair, I actually missed the finance contact but was contacted for a phone interview with a recruiter a week later. I then had onsite interviews with 4 different Finance directors and had to complete a case study. Though the process may have changed slightly (i.e. multiple interviewers) the core of the process is roughly the same.

    Interview Questions
