    Ops Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    When they decide to move ahead, they really move. Got a call and did a phone interview and a week later they flew me out. The interview consisted of hoping around through maybe 6-8 interview sessions, a short tour with a disgruntled Union employee and that was it. I had maybe two follow up phone calls, one an interview with the plant manager and that was all she wrote. I thought it would be harder....

    Negotiation Details
    They asked what i wanted and I'd never been asked that before and they gave me much more than I had planned on, but cost of living is greater out here as well.

      Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    My credentials were more than what the internship wanted, and since I was looking for full time, they pushed me to interview for the full time development program (2 yr program).
    They then flew me out to Schenectady for the interview for the full time program, not the 10 week internship program.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GE in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me about the position since I am currently employed and not looking. He did a short screening with me and then I had to "apply" online. After that he sent me questions via email and had me answer them and then another phone interview with him. My answers to both the email questions and the phone screening were then sent to the hiring manager.

    A couple of days later the recruiter called me back to say that the hiring manager wanted to have phone interview with me. Phone inteview with hiring manager was 30 minutes and he invited me on site for an interview.

    The onsite interview was a full day of interviews starting at 11am and going past 5pm. Each hour was with a different person and one interview was during lunch (eat, talk, answer questions). Everyone was very nice, engaging, bright and focused. I personally had a great time meeting with everyone and discussing the vision and direction of the business.

    No questions were out of the ordinary, the typical what are your strengths, weaknesses, greatest accomplishment, how would your supervisor describe you, are you techincal enough for the position and how so, etc. In the first interview he had me grab the dry erase pen and go up to the white board and in 8 minutes teach him about something.

    Business Transitions Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at GE in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for two different positions: first on the Communications team, a role which I wasn't offered, and subsequently on the Business Transitions team, which I was considerably happier about and accepted as soon as the role was offered. The process started with a phone call from HR about 2 weeks after I had submitted my application through both my universtiy and the GE Careers website. I elected to interview one week following the phone call. The interview (with the Communications team) consisted of 2 group interviews and a one-on-one interview with the team leader. The atmosphere was quite relaxed, and the questions asked were quite standard fare. I found out 2 days after that I didn't get this position but was being considered for a different one on another team. One week later, I interviewed for the Business Transitions intern role, and had a similar 3 panel interview, which was again fairly relaxed. Two days after the interview, I received a call from HR and my offer letter a few days afterwards.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at GE in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview not conducted by direct boss but by underlings. Very strange since after been hired direct manager started manipulating me and playing games. It seemed the chemistry was not there and decided to lay obstacles for my exit. On interview was promised training by mentor but after been hired you discover that you are on your own. On yearly review manager complained I asked too many questions which caused disruptions. Explained it was caused by my curiosity and total lack of training but was totally ignored.

    Mechanical/Materials Testing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Niskayuna, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Niskayuna, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at GE in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got the initial phone call about three months after my online application. This consisted of a general check of my experience, as well as my career goals. Based on that, I was then asked to give a presention on the phone about my thesis work. This was limited to about an hour and consisted of some technical questions asked by a group of three staff members plus the hiring manager. Then they wanted me to come in and give another presentation in person, as well as do group/individual interviews. The hiring manager was clear about what he wanted in the phone presentation, but less clear about the on-site presentation. I messed this up by not asking enough questions, so make sure you are 100% clear on what they are looking for. The people there were generally nice, but seem a little cold and distant. Since I met with about 10 people that day, I think that it was intentional and part of the way that GE interview, so I would not let yourself be discourage by that. It is a corporate culture and there are some things that go with that, but there is a lot of room to move up in the company and the feeling I got is that they expect you to do just that. Being able to communicate effectively is a big deal both on a personal and a group level.

At the end, he informed me that the key qualification that they are looking for was someone who could interact with the off-shore team of Oracle DBAs in India. I asked him how large was that group - he said 89 DBAs. There were very few DBAs on-site.
