I applied through college or university – interviewed at GE.
I went through a single typical HR interview. The beginning began with simple questions the interviewer had after observing my resume. Then, the interviewer read off of a pdf on a laptop, so the questions were quite standard. They were all behavioral questions, despite my background and position being technical.

EID InterviewAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at GE in September 2013.
I applied for a job posting they put on my school website. I was selected for an interview, in which they came to my campus. We had about a 40 minute interview, which seemed pretty standard. Normally they look for engineers, but in this case I think they wanted a supply chain/operations student, which I am. After the interview, I was given an internship offer and I accepted. My original assignment was for a lean manufacturing position in california, but the plant was sold before my internship began, so I was reassigned to a facility in New York. I don't think they were really expecting a supply chain intern there, but I was able to gain some good experience.
- They asked me a question about how I had used data to analyze and solve a complicated problem. Most of their questions were pretty standard like this. Answer Question
I was given a very competitive hourly wage for my internship, and also compensated for travel and lodging.

EID InterviewAccepted Offer
Phone interview after contacting person through campus recruiting network. Offer given next day. Typical STAR interview questions, not too bad. Just went over resume submitted by email earlier. Didn't hear anything for quite awhile after that until background check started spring semester. Intern program isn't as organized as I would've thought, no formal orientation for the Houston interns and it wasn't until much later in the summer that I met interns working in other buildings around the city.
