Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Barrington, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE Healthcare in April 2010.

Interview Details – applied online for the role. was contacted by hr to schedule a day of interviews at the barrington, il facility. interviews were scheduled from noon to 5 p.m. i met with everyone from an intern to the person currently in the role, to several managers and the senior most person in the group. each person was different. everyone was friendly and the interviews were well until meeting with the most senior level individual. all i can say was he was berating, disrespectful, unprofessional and just plain ridiculous. just think horrible bosses or the devil wears prada times 10. had i had the courage i would've gotten up and left. but i didn't. i cant say it was a bad company, bad team, but it was surely very bad senior management and unless you live in the northwest suburbs its a horrible location

Interview Question – tell about yourself
where do you see yourself in 5/ 10 years
why do you want to leave your current role

Field Service Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Barrington, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE Healthcare.

Interview Details – First, you'll go through the phone interview. If you do well, then you will be invited for an "in person" interview. You will go from room to room with about 3 sets of different level managers and team leaders. Questions are going to vary anywhere from previous work experience to technical questions.

Interview Question – "What is the most important thing you would like us to remember about you?"   Answer Question

Average Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Barrington, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GE Healthcare.

Interview Details – Two phone interviews and one on-site interview.

The phone interviews consist of your background and skill set, as well as theory questions on how you would approach and solve basic coding or system challenges. They also ask you behavioral questions situations you've experienced and how you handled them.

The on-site interview is essentially the two phone interviews merged together. They may throw a white-board coding challenge your way but not always.

Interview Question – If you tell the interviewer your weakness (i.e. databases) they almost always ask you about them in detail. It's a GE ego thing. It's hard to say what questions you'll be asked during an interview because the interviewer training isn't well put together.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – A verbal offer on the phone, make sure you negotiate this, otherwise they expect you are satisfied. You can still negotiate once you receive the email offer, but its best to just do it on the phone. You can almost always get a bit more than the original offer.

Difficult Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Barrington, IL

The process took 2 days - interviewed at GE Healthcare in November 2008.

Interview Details – 2 panel groups, one consisting of leadership evaluation and another consisting of technical evaluation. Each panel questioned for about 1 hour different questions on past experiences and hypothetical technical situations. The leadership evaluation asked questions specifically targeted towards GE's famous 'growth values'.

   1.

      External Focus: “Defines success through the customer's eyes. In tune with industry dynamic. Sees around corners.” FA translation: Know how your clients truly define a successful financial advisor relationship. “Seeing around corners” requires that you interpret industry events in a way that will help you predict future developments.
   2.

      Clear Thinking: “Seeks simple solutions to complex problems. Is decisive and focused. Communicates clear and consistent priorities.” FA translation: Understand your affluent client's concerns and problems and provide clear, easy-to-understand solutions. All of your marketing efforts should focus on acquiring the ideal client. Make sure your clients know they are your “number one.”
   3.

      Imagination: “Generates new and creative ideas. Is resourceful and open to change. Takes risks on both people and ideas. Displays courage and tenacity.” FA translation: You need to think of new ways to create tangible value for clients. That may mean developing a new service model. Look at what your competitors are doing and take it one step further. Look for solutions that are outside your comfort zone.
   4.

      Inclusiveness: “Is a team player. Respects others' ideas and contributions. Creates excitement, drives engagement, builds loyalty and commitment.” FA translation: Treat everyone you work with as a knowledge worker. Use their expertise. For example, even if you share an assistant with another advisor, you must consider this person a part of your team. Their ideas and contributions should be encouraged and ultimately required. Communication with support personnel and junior advisors must be clear and ongoing. Delegate responsibilities, not just tasks, and take the time to teach subordinates new things and build their expertise whenever possible.
   5.

      Expertise: “Has in-depth domain knowledge and credibility built on experience. Continuously develops self. Loves learning.” FA translation: Developing a deeper understanding of demographics, industry changes, political developments, consumer trends, and current affluent needs and wants will give you greater credibility with your clients and subordinates. Cultivating greater knowledge of yourself and engaging in physical exercise are also crucial to your ability to overcome future challenges. Commit to lifelong learning.

Interview Question – You have one gold bar that you need to pay a carpenter for an upcoming job. He will work seven days for you, and you must pay him one seventh (1/7) of your gold bar at the end of each day. What is the fewest number of cuts you can make to achieve this?   View Answer
