    Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE Aviation.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, in-person interview, job offer. No technical questions. About an hour of behavioral questions, which became a little redundant. Meticulous questions about past experiences in leadership to really find out who I am. GE Aviation is an amazing place to work for as an intern. I think it is rated top five in the nation for overall engineering experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Know your resume meticulously and emphasize your past experiences   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    GE Aviation is an amazing place to work for interns. I couldn't work there without graduating late, and I declined.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE Aviation.

    Engineer/Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  West Chester, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Chester, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at GE Aviation.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact was with a human resources representative who set up a phone screen with one of the hiring managers. After that screening, I was contacted again by human resources and told they wanted to do an in person interview. The actual interview was actually 5 interviews, one with HR, one with the hiring managers, one technical interview, and two other "GE value" type interviews. The HR rep told me that they were making an effort to back to interviewees quickly after the in person interviews, and that was the case. I had an offer about 1 week later.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical interview was not necessarily hard, but you have to know engineering fundamentals or else it won't go well. Also, the HR interviewer will make you feel relaxed and tell you their interview is not as important; but hiring managers have told me after starting work that HR has vetoed candidates that the managers wanted based on what they found out in that interview. So stay on your game the whole time.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at GE Aviation in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with an hour screen call by HR, never really talked about a position specifically, Mostly about what I was looking for. About a week later scheduled an phone interview. Lasted about 30 mins, Interviewer had next to nothing to say about the position, questions were all very general. I'm pretty sure the interviewer not only didn't look at my resume until about 20 mins into a 30 mins phone call but I'm pretty sure he didn't know what position it was for.
