Data Architect Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE Capital in April 2012.

Interview Details

Applied directly online, no recruiter / headhunter.

1. Initial phone call with outsourced HR person, nothing technical, just going over background as it related to position. Discussion of current salary.

2. Phone call with hiring manager. A few technical questions relating to query design and optimization. Reviewed background and position responsibilities. Some behavioral questions.

3. Phone call with SME. Extremely technical, 15-20 challenging questions covering a wide-array of DB architecture topics from data partitioning, query / index optimization, data modeling, etc..

4. Phone call with hiring manager's manager. Non-technical, behavioral questions.

5. Interview with HR manager. Behavioral questions, general discussion of GE Capital / GE.

Offer came a few days after speaking with HR manager.

Overall I felt the interview process was very challenging yet fair, and they obviously put some effort into weeding out less than qualified candidates. I wouldn't suggest GE Capital as a place to interview if you're planning on using the "I'll fake it to get the job, then read some books" strategy. You need to have had experience with the core functional areas of the position, or else they'll immediately know you're out of your league.
