Lead Engineer Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at GE in August 2010.

Interview Question – It was a pretty standard interview, no difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pretty standard, I asked for a $5k bump, got verbal agreement and it was missing in the paper version. It took a little pressure to get the agreed to amount.
