Very Easy Interview

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer

I applied online and 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.

Performance Engineer Senior Interview

Anonymous Employee
Lynn, MA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE Aviation in May 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online and secured a telephone interview with a hiring manager. The telephone interview went well and I was invited for an on-site. The on-site was a series of typical fit interviews and repeated reviews of my resume with multiple managers. The experience was pleasant and cordial. The overall interview took about 8 hours of the day including an hour lunch with other "recent" hires.

The interview process was quite easy, and I was surprised that there were no real technical questions beyond talking about my past experience.

Interview Question – Just the typical "Tell me about a time when you had a workplace conflict and how you resolved it."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I received several offers, but GE's was superior by far, so I did not negotiate.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GE Aviation in June 2013.

Interview Details – Worst interview ever! First, the directions to the parking area are wrong, referring to a lot that is not mentioned on the direction sign. Then after signing in at the guard gate, you meet with HR for two minutes to turn in paperwork, and are then sent to another gate for the interviews. (Couldn't HR meet you at the second gate?). Then the day starts with no introduction as to who you will meet and where they fit in the organization. The "real" HR interview was held by telephone -- and the phone number was wrong! Well, after blowing the most inane question I was ever asked, I was blackballed while in the telephone HR interview, so you can imagine the day went downhill from there. Finally, they didn't formally get back to me for four weeks!

Interview Question – What advice would you offer to the managers setting up the operation?   View Answer
