    GM hires great talent in their treasury team and is a great place to build your career. Having said that the interview process is very technical. Expect to get asked detailed valuation questions as well as other corporate finance questions. One should prepare for this interview like a banking interview

    Met recruiters through school career fair. Had a short (30m) interview the following day on campus. Basic behavioral questions - "why did you pick your school?"; "why computer science?"; "tell me about a time..." Many STAR interview type questions - recruiters interested in how you applied classroom knowledge. Had a second round interview which was effectively more of the first, also short, and also on campus. Got an offer about 2 weeks later.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at General Motors in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited at campus recruiting. Went through a basic screen (non-technical). I made it to the interview and it was largely behavioral, but they did ask about project I had worked on and we discussed technical aspects. No random questions about beam bending or anything, just about what I had worked on and put on my resume. They also flew potential hires out to Michigan, which was honestly a lot of fun and very informative.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me to describe a time that I had to publicly admit to making a mistake.   View Answer

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

    Interview Details

    General experience questions and situations. A lot of "Give me an example of..." questions. Responses had to fit in a structure and needed to be concise. The structure included: What was the situation?, What actions did you take?, What thought process(es) led you to take those actions?, What was the outcome?, W?hat did you learn from the experience?, When have you applied it since?. The interview was with hiring managers that stayed away from technical questions.

    • "Give me an example of a time you had to motivate or work closely with an individual from a different culture."   View Answer
