    The entire interview was 5 hours long. I interviewed with 2 different managers from the same department, and each interview lasted about one hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    I applied through their web site, Did a phoner a week later and then got a call to come in. Talked to five people and all of them stuck to a format for the interview. They had set questions and wanted to fill them all out between the five of them. I later would call the recruiter back and told me he had left the company. He game me another number and that person had left too. I sent an email and it was returned as undeliverable. Felt a bit mistreated since I had given up three hours of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot about how tech is applied. They seemed to be a bit behind on this and so it was tough to answer the question without insulting them.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in December 2014.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen on December 11th. After the holidays, they followed up and scheduled a second phone interview with two team members on January 9th.

    They were both very human-voiced interviews, with mostly behavior-based questions.

    Following the second interview we exchanged a couple of E-mails, but now there's been radio silence for several weeks. Disappointing that they would treat a candidate this way.

    Update: After another week, the hiring manager finally responded my previous E-mail, and the process is moving forward. Still not sure what the outcome will be. HR contacted me, as well, and the primary focus was on compensation. He actually asked me, "what's your bottom line?"
