    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    CDN Module Lead Engineer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GE Aviation in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    As a potential returning employee I was struck by how different the interview was from twenty years ago when I first came to GE.
    The interview consisted of four one hour conversations in a small break out room fifty feet from the front door. There was no tour of the office or facillities. Very little effort was made to convince me it might be a place I would enoy working. I received no follow up correspondence other than a system generated e-mail saying that I was no longer a candidate for the position. Everyone I dealt with seemed to be going through the motions.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at GE Aviation.

    Interview Details

    Recruiters came to my school and had a networking event. If they thought you might be a good fit they would send you an email after the networking event.
    The interview process was easier than expected. Very behavioral based. However, if you have a technical background they can push you to see what knowledge you actually have.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations. As an intern they were very strict in terms of pay and when you had to accept or reject their offer.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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 Details

    I got the interview with GE Aviation through my university. The man i met with was a composite engineer in Cincinnati Ohio. He was very easy going and made me feel relaxed at the interview. From the questions i was asked its clear that GE values a persons character above skill. I respect that a lot.
