Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern
Lynn, MA

The process took a day - interviewed at GE in August 2010.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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 Details – Nothing. Interns don't have much room for negotiation.

Engineering Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at GE in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty relaxed, mostly questions regarding why I wanted to work for the company and what would make me a good fit. Also, the interviewer asked me a good deal of questions based on projects and experience that I had on my resume. The interviewer was a senior engineer and seemed to know a good deal. I thought the interview was going to be dealing mainly with the energy branch of GE, but it was highly focused on their industrial solutions branch.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at GE in October 2011.

Interview Details – A pretty average interview. Was at the end of the day with two interviewers who both seemed kind of burned out by the time they got to me. Lots of questions about projects I'd done in school and teamwork. Questions about coursework and previous jobs. I don't know if I'd have got it or not as I accepted a position with another company and withdrew myself from consideration.

Interview Question – Can you think of a time you had trouble with a member of a team you were on and how did you resolve this?   Answer Question

Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at GE in September 2011.

Interview Details – They just ask many situation questions like, "please give an example of when this happened and how did you handle it". Just be ready to talk about alot of experiences you have.

Interview Question – What is something that you've learned in school that you found contrary to an experience.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is pretty much no negotiation. They end up sending you an email with how much they will pay you per week (usually a good number anyways) but you either accept or decline. Oh and you get about 2 and a half months to accept or decline so you have time to choose what you want. you do have to accept the internship before you know where you are going so it's a bit of a gamble if you have a certain place you'd like to work.
