Engineer Interview

Engineer
Clearwater, FL

The process took a day - interviewed at GE Aviation in March 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process is lengthy. From the the time I applied for the position, it took 3 weeks to get a phone call. From the time I had the phone interview it took 6 weeks to get the on site interview. The processing of setting up the interview is quite confusing as you end up getting emails from 2 or 3 different people. The person coordinating the interview (Monica) needs to work on her professionalism and diplomacy. The interview was easy, people were friendly, but then last step of the hiring process was horrible! Not much feedback and they do not make you feel excited about joining their team. In fact, they almost make you feel as they would be hiring you because they were asked to hire more engineers but don't really want you there! They need to appreciate it when they find good talent and respect the time of the applicant. The first impression was great but then it went down hill. The manager should have done a better job making the applicant comfortable and wanted by his organization.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you suggested a solution and it didn't work   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The manager should have done a better job making the applicant comfortable and wanted by his organization. It really came down to the manager's attitude. It seems like a decent place to work for but the deal breaker was the last step of the hiring process. Perhaps managers can receive training on how to find good talent, welcome it to the team and retain it. After all attracting and retaining good talent would make a difference in the future of GE Aviation.

Difficult Interview

Engineer Interview

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at GE Aviation in September 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of two phone interviews and an on-site interview. The process seemed a little disorganized, as though there was very limited internal coordination and communication. I was invited for an on-site interview approximately two months after the two phone interviews. The on site interview required the better part of the day and consisted of panel interviews with various teams as well as 1:1 interview with management.

The questions asked during the entire interview process were behavior based. There was obviously an approved GE interview playbook, with little variation from the approved questions. Be prepared to answer the same question several times with different panels of interviewers. A typical sampling of questions:

1. Describe a time that your project failed and how you handled it.
2. Tell me about a time when you had trouble receiving criticism.
3. Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult person.
4. Describe a time when you took a risk and how you evaluated your risk.
5. Describe a time when you disagreed with your manager and how you handled it.
6. Tell me three things you are proud/not proud of.

My interview seemed to go well, but after three months I have not heard anything.
