    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at GE (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds--they all generally asked about your background, why you're interested, etc. I think management is really trying to check if he candidate is interested in finance instead of just the leadership aspect of the program.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at GE (Lynn, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Two interviewers ask simple,"tell us a time when..." type questions. The interview lasts for about twenty minutes when they open it up for you to ask them question for the remaining time. The guys are very friendly. Re-applied as a junior and still waiting for a response
    UPDATE- Received an email saying that I am being considered further for my candidacy . Everyone else who received this email already has been offered the position at my school. Does anyone know what this means?

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GE (Billerica, MA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    My credentials were forwarded to a manager at GE Sensing in Billerica, MA by a school internship coordinator. From there, I was selected for an on-site interview with said manager. The interview lasted no more than 40 minutes, and was not challenging in the slightest. Given that I was applying for my first technical position (as a student), very few technical questions were asked. Most of the questions were geared toward my character, decision-making skills and past leadership roles. After the interview, I was given a tour of the facilities, and left with a few interns that were working at the time. They mentioned that the atmosphere was very laid back, and that they were able to learn some. The interns that I spoke with said that they recommended their positions for someone applying for their first internship (freshman, sophomore in college). I left the interview feeling confident and was also a bit surprised that the process was so short and simple. I didn't hear back from my interviewer for at least two weeks (which I later found out is due to the fact that all intern formalities are dealt with at GE in Schenectady, NY which adds delays to the interviewing process), but I was offered a position at that point (that I ultimately accepted). In my brief time at the office that day, the people I encountered seemed knowledgable and down to earth.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Because the GE intern program is dealt with by a dedicated office in Schenectady, NY that manages hundreds of interns around the world, it is very difficult to negotiate wages, hours, decision deadlines or anything like that. I think that only in the most extreme circumstances would an intern be able to negotiate his or her wage. The people running that program know that their internships are in high demand, so they have no problem saying no to an intern.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GE (Billerica, MA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Hiring and interview processes were very formal. You feel like you are the part on the moving conveyor belt. The place looks like gigantic ant house - people look like mechanism parts, not individuals.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GE (Lynn, MA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of mostly behavioral questions. "What would you do in this situation? How would you handle this situation? Tell me a time when..?" Generic questions like these. Honestly, they were more interested in my high GPA and I think in their eyes, I was pretty much sold.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. (although this seems pretty straight forward, it is best to go prepared with information about yourself that you want to relay to the interviewer)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nothing. Interns don't have much room for negotiation.

    Interview

    this was for an software position. There were several people on the phone call, 1:n. They basically asked me about the projects I listed on my resume, a lot of details. Also, I was asked if I ever worked on ARM, what kind of processors I used. There wasn't many technical questions or coding, since that was a phone interview.
