Interview Details

Met at a college student organization national conference, was interviewed on spot with mostly behavioral questions like what is your greatest accomplishment and asked me to tell a time that I had to go with someone else's idea and how I handled the situation. Made it to next round and was invited to on-site interview.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GE Aviation in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen with the Manager of the section hiring Software EEDPs for GE Aviation where we mostly talked about Cincinnati but also my co-op experiences in school. Because my resume had been mixed up, I had little notice before I found out I was to attend an on-site interview in Grand Rapids, MI where I gave a very strict 5 minute presentation and rotated between 5 interviewers. All interview questions were behavioral. I believe 4 others were interviewing at the same time, with another batch that afternoon and then two batches the next day. After the interviews, our interview group had a set amount of time to build a lego model with the challenge that only one person could leave the room to see the completed model at a time. We then had a box long and presentation.

    I heard back a within two weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GE Aviation in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, with CV, Cover Letter and motivational questions.
    Received a call asking to arrange a phone interview about 2 months later.
    Telephone interview was with a line manager, lasted about 30 minutes, asked:
    -Give me an overview of the courses you have taken, which did you enjoy the most, and which the least, why?
    -Technical details of your final year project
    -Technical details + your role in another group project that you liked
    -Have you had any control experience before and can you tell me a bit about control theory? (Then asked very in depth questions about the coursework I mentioned, couldn't answer some because I didn't review control theory!)

    Overall a different type of interview, but good if you know your technical details!
    Will wait a few days to get a response if invited to assessment centre or not...

    Interview Questions
    • Technical questions about last year's control coursework I hadn't reviewed! It was about an inverted pendulum, and we had to make it stable.   Answer Question

    Questions regarding past experiences I've had leading, communicating, going beyond what is required, being successful, dealing with failure, et cetera. Followup questions were also asked. After about thirty minutes he asked me if I had any questions for him, and I asked what his experience was like in the EEDP. He said it's a rewarding, but very demanding program and that he is happy with where he is now.
