    SDLP Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GE Energy Management.

    Interview

    To be considered for these programs (EEDP and SDLP) it is best if you have prior internship experience with the company. GE is very culture focused and prefer candidates that have that "GE language". If you have done internships it is very easy to apply for theses programs. Initially you fill out a form to show your interest in the position, then after that you will be contacted for a phone interview. This is a basic phone interview, nothing technical yet but used to identify if you are a good candidate for that program or if they think you might be a better fir for another program. After passing that, I had a webex video conference with my future to be boss. This was also very self driven, I gave a 10minute presentation about myself, my accomplishments, and why I am a good fit for the program. Afterwards I was asked some very basic technical questions (some OOP questions, some basic networking concepts, really if you have taken any software or networking courses these questions will be a breeze). After passing that round I was given an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember a question specifically, but none were really difficult   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    GE is going to be the hardest company to negotiate with. However, it I believe it is important to attempt it by using the right strategy. I was able to meet face to face with my boss and gave him my reasons as to why I think the salary could be higher. After a week he got back to me saying that my offered salary was already higher than what they normally offer candidates and that it won't be able to be higher. A month later, he sent me an email saying that my salary would go up by 2.5k due to HR research, but I'm sure it was because I showed that well presented initiative for a raise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GE Energy Management.

    Interview

    Met the HR rep at a career fair at my college. Handed them my resume, spoke with them for ten minutes or so, and then left. Afterwards I went in for an hour long interview where, unlike most software engineer internships, it was almost entirely a personality exam. I guess one can ascertain a lot about a person's intelligence / software skills through just a discussion, but I was certainly expecting more technical questions. After a brief runthrough of my resume, she asked me a series of questions involving my greatest challenges and fears, etc etc. A few days after the in-person interview, I received an email with the offer, including start dates and pay.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your greatest challenge in the last year? How did you respond to said challenge, and how did it stimulate your personal growth?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, but considering its an internship I feel like that is pretty standard.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE Energy Management.

    Interview

    Applied online and also visited the booth they had on campus during our career fair. Within a week I got an email notifying me to setup an interview. The interview was straight forward and is a behavioral one. Things I was asked about were my ambitions, biggest accomplishments, and what my takes are on being a leader. I definitely expected a follow up interview, but this was the only interview I got before getting an offer from them.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at GE Energy Management.

    Interview

    The process was fairly fast. They flew me to North Carolina where I had four interviews. All the interviews were behavioral. The interviews were with the OMLP supervisor, hiring manager, HR recruiter, and a current OMLP employee. They asked about previous internships, leadership involvement at the university, involvement in organizations, etc. Some general questions like proudest achievement, tell me about a time you worked with a difficult person and how did you handle it, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE Energy Management (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I came to the interview through a career fair hosted by my university. GE had accepted me for an interview--- all I had sent them was my resume. My interviewer was very friendly and well-mannered. The interview itself was not technical in nature. I was only asked behavioral questions like "Tell me about a situation where you encountered an unexpected problem and how did you deal with it?" The whole interview was based on what I had written in my resume. My interviewer would just ask me to speak in more detail about what I did. I had a lot of experiences on my resume, so it everything went smoothly.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was particularly unexpected or difficult. Be prepared to talk about team projects and team relationships; for example, describe a conflict you had with a partner and how did you work it out?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was tempted, but the offer was only $24 an hour. Relocation benefits were minimal. Also, the acceptance website was very old and obsolete looking; it gave the impression of a company without competent management.
