    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    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+ weeksinterviewed 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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GE Aviation.

    Interview Details

    Signed up through my university after career fair.

    Questions were all behavioral/situational. The interviewer was an alumni and easy to connect with. He was very personable. I had to walk through my resume and my experiences and talk more in depth about some of my technical background.

    Interview Questions
    • I'm not sure how it is for other internship programs at GE, but for the ITLP program, I had to specify what specific business I wanted to work in (Appliances, Aviation, Energy, Capital, etc) and why.   Answer Question

    Contracts Management Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE Aviation in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The initial impressions were very welcoming and upbeat. The two interviews (one former alumni of my school and the other a higher-end manager of the program) had normal conversation with me, and they asked questions like real people. They weren't robots. They had sincere styles in how they asked situational questions; they actually wanted to get to know who I was as a person. I felt like I could really connect with them. I eventually was invited to fly down to their Cincinnati headquarters for two more interviews - one with a manager in their HR department, and the second with a program manager from the first one and another guy who is stationed in Cincinnati and helps with the program. Once again, it was a very sincere, yet professional conversation. They really wanted to know who I was, not just to score my generic situational answers on a sheet. Although I didn't get the job, I was very happy with the experience.

    Test Specialist Interview

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

    interviewed at GE Aviation in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I interviewed with the manager in the area as well as the lead test specialist. They both questioned me on a few technical things as well as broad questions. The whole interview was fairly painless and lasted about 30 minutes. I think I answered most questions positively except for one, it wasn't a huge deal though. After that, a few weeks later I had an interview with HR, also very laid back. I heard back from them about 2 weeks after the interview with HR.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a question related to using a digital multimeter for a specific circuit, I can't remember the full details.   Answer Question
