    Application Details

    interviewed at General Motors in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the company website took few months to get the interview call. Received a call from the HR rep and the time for interview along with the day was flexible. There was only one interview with two managers and all they asked were behavioural questions. They want to know more about you and what you can do rather than the technical aspect as you can learn that once you start work if you are dedicated. The interviewers were really friendly and laid back I didnt feel even a little nervous after the first few questions.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All were straight forward behavioural questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation as I didn't have that much experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring for college students is through their campus recruiting process. There is usually 2 rounds of interviews, each involving 1 or 2 people. Mainly about situations and how you handled the situation as well as what you learned from the experience. In the 2nd rounds, there is usually a technical question to test your technical knowledge and problem solving skills.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really challenging. As long as you have a good command of your school and work experiences to draw from for the "situational" questions. For the technical question, if you should not have problems if you have been diligent with your computer science classes and project work.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Mainly behavorial questions. Nothing too difficult. Had two back to back interviews same day with two different managers. No technical questions but be sure to admit you don't know something instead of pretending like you do. It seemed very fast paced but it covered a broad range of interview questions. Mainly, "Name a time where a fellow teammate performed poorly." Or "What was the most challenging task you have ever completed?"
