I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GE Healthcare (Milwaukee, WI) in December 2014.
They called me over for an interview, did not really ask much. They feared I was overqualified for the job as I had a Masters degree in Engineering, I assured them that I finish what I start. The manager I spoke to seemed to be well mannered and polite. They showed me the labs and work area, gave a tour of the general facilities. Described what the job would be like and what I would do in a day and then offered the job.

Two interviews. Above average complexity. Nice boss, and once onboard, great training, supplies, and troubleshooting support lines and order lines. First imperative requested of me was 'What do you have to offer GE Genworth that we don't already have? Why do we need this and you? Also, where do you see yourself in ten years?
- What do you like most about GE Genworth? Answer Question
Their terms mostly.
- No Offer
panel interview, most if them did not know the process, and was not informative on the process. Also they dont informó you if you were accepted or not, left interviewer hanging

I applied online. I interviewed at GE Healthcare (Arlington Heights, IL) in November 2014.
Interviews are relatively informal, though professional formal dress is expected/desired. There is an expectation that candidates have relatively flexible schedules (OT/weekends) as well as a very adaptable work style. Being proactive and a strong team member is a must!
- Are you comfortable with working directly with open sources of radioactive material? Answer Question
No negotiation was needed

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GE Healthcare in November 2014.
One of GE internal recruiters approached me about the position in San Diego with API Healthcare having recently merged with GE. Went through a phone screen with the recruiter, then got connected with a fellow recruiter who set up two phone interviews. Received positive feedback through both phone screenings and was set to do an on-site interview with the team for the day with the date and time set three weeks ago. That got changed when the QA manager went on vacation, but I wasn't given any update as to when she'll return. Checked back a week later, and was told they were still waiting on updates which took a few days for the recruiter to reply. I'm guessing something happened, where either it's a serious issue, politics or someone involved in the interview was no longer interested. Wasn't really told anything of detail otherwise. I would think if it was a serious issue that a plan B would be set since I was told their plan was to find someone for this position by the end of the year. Six weeks have passed since initial conversation. Haven't heard any updates since. I have noticed though the position being relisted on LinkedIn as of last week, so I guess they are moving forward but can't be honest enough to tell me even after the supposed next steps.
- None were particularly difficult. Straightforward QA approach questions. Answer Question

Started out with an interview at an on campus career fair followed by an invite to a seminar of likely candidates. From there, the recruiters further narrowed the list of candidates down to about 6 for extended interviews about 30 min-45 min long. From there, they determined who would get a final interview in Milwaukee. Final interview was spread over 2 days including a dinner with other candidates and then 5 interviews with sales managers in the company, each lasting roughly 30 min.
- Was asked to prepare a presentation on a healthcare topic. No PPT allowed. Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GE Healthcare.
They ask lots of "tell me about a time when" questions. I believe they feel that they can teach you the technical skills pretty easily. They want to see if you will be a good fit for the team.
- Tell me about a time when you had to accomplish something while working with a difficult person? This one is tricky because most of the plants are unionized. They want to see how you handle hourly people who sometimes don't want to work and may not have to. Keep in mind, they people interviewing you are very, very bright. If they ask you questions about something technical in your resume, it may sound as if they are just being curious but they will likely know the answer before you speak. Don't BS them, they will drill down until they are convinced you are being honest with them. Answer Question
Not much movement at all. It pretty much is what it is.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GE Healthcare (Arlington Heights, IL).
Phone interview, then wait one week, then in person interview. F2F interview involved short half hour with hiring manager, half hour with supervisor(s), then a half hour 3 panel interview, followed by tour of the facility. People were generally nice, besides the two other people on the panel who would be my co-workers. They came off as people I'd never want to work with. However, managers and supervisors were nice. The position as I viewed it after the interview: 1) was nothing like the job description. 2) Was (IMHO)problably the neatest invironment for someone doing quality control testing e.g. cyclotrons, nuclear medicine, Pharma API etc.--- Perhaps the most intersting industry work you could do with a basic chemistry degree. I felt generally short-changed as I wasn't prepared for this type of interview due to the inaccuracy of the description. If I would have known the actuall details of the job, I would have prepared better and I probably could have gotten it.

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Healthcare (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2014.
At GE Healthcare (and maybe all Edison Programs) there are 3/4 tiers of interviews and offer letters. If you are an intern for GEHC, you are almost guaranteed and interview and have the best chance at getting the job because no positions are filled yet. Also mixed in here might be interns who are not in the EEDP intern program, if not then that group will be considered immediately following the EEDP interns. The next tier is if you are an intern for any GE entity, and lastly people who did not intern with GE the previous summer. If you are an intern for GEHC you will only have one interview. In this interview you need to present a technical project that you have worked on (current intern assignment is a popular choice but I do not know if it enhances your chances). The interview itself is behavioral and resume centered. You will be asked about a lot of things on your resume, so I highly recommend going over your resume multiple times before and reflecting on the jobs and projects you have listed. I did not receive one technical question, but I was told that in the past there has been one question that needed to be solved in Java. I honestly only felt alright about my interview. They are looking for people who want to work hard and lead the company one day. If you are an intern you should treat that as a continual interview. You are evaluated multiple times during an internship and I am sure that those are used to help make a decision.
- Can you explain what <Detail from your Resume> is? (Followed up by your technical contribution to the project) Answer Question
Under the impression that there is no negation. Upon offer you have about 6 weeks to decide.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GE Healthcare in August 2014.
Had one group interview with chemists, then with the lab supervisor, than with the manager. In the group interview they asked me about handling stress and my availability, as the job often required you to stay late. It was a three on one group interview with senior chemists, in which we chatted about the stresses of the job. Then came the one-on-one with the supervisor who asked me about my analytical chemistry skills and my availability. The one-on-one with the manager was more typical, asking me about my goals.
