Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer

Interviewed at GE

Interview Details – The interview was conducted on campus and was conducted by two people. One of the interviewers was a EE and the other was a PE. The interview conducted was a standard behavioral interview, they read off questions from a sheet that they had and took notes. The questions that they asked were a bit repetitive and they wanted to see how you responded. It seemed they liked to ask questions that would shine you in a negative light and see how you would flip it to be positive.

Interview Question – Give an example of a time where you failed to do something.   Answer Question
