Lead Program Integrator II Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at GE Healthcare in August 2013.
Interview Details – I was first contacted by the HR department at GE Headquarters to schedule a telephone interview. I was then interviewed over the phone by an Engineering Manager at the site where I would be working. This was a one hour interview where he first gave an overview of the line of business and the position, then asked a number of standard interview questions. I was asked about my experience and to give specific examples of some of the projects/responsibilities I had. I was then contacted one week later, again by HR, to schedule a day long on-site interview. Before the on-site inteview I had to fill out very detailed background information. I had an intense agenda of 30-minute interviews with various people at the organization as well as a teleconference and a video-teleconference with offices in Europe. The interviews ranged from sctructured Q&A to more casual conversation. I followed up after the interviews and received no response. Three weeks after the on-site interviews I received a cold, automated email from HR saying they were no longer pursuing me for the position. No reasons given.
Interview Question – Provide an example of a project challenge and how you overcame it; how do you deal with personnel conflict; explain how you manage risk on your projects; what are you most proud of, give an example of something that went wrong on a project and how you addressed it. Answer Question

Clinical Education Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GE Healthcare in August 2013.
Interview Details – Applied in June, and the process really didn't proceed until early August. Received a call from a recruiter to ask initial questions. From there, I spoke to an additional clinical ed specialist for a 'technical review'. (The technical review was what I would equate to a peer interview...making sure that not only I could walk the walk, but talk the talk). After the technical review, I was then invited to GE Healthcare headquarters for an additional series of interviews on site with the Hiring Manager, a peer, and the Team Leader.
Interview Question – The technical review was challenging. However, if you are up to date with information and key concepts in your area of expertise, it shouldn't be too bad. The on-site interviews were all behavioral based questions (I.e....."tell me about a time when _______________" ) Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiation was very easy. GE Healthcare made a very generous initial offer. Since I was leaving one job and had not yet had my vacation for the year, I asked for a provision to allow me to maintain my vacation plans. The Hiring manager was agreeable to that.
Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE Healthcare in May 2013.
Interview Details – 2 Vendor + 1 Client interview.
experience, general c++ and agile principles, difficult time, greatest challenge.
Though we know the good practices, usage and syntax of things, its better to read definitions and "we never use this or need to remember this rule in c++ and this thing in c++ is only for interview" kind of things just to be able to quickly tell without taking time to interviewer.
Interview Question – noting difficult Answer Question
Negotiation Details – That was the first thing they asked. There was no problem with the rate. we are both were looking at same rate.
Director Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)

Interview Details – Applied for the position a month and a half before I received a phone screening interview via e-mail. The HR manager was punctual when calling at the agreed time. The questions were straight forward and non-hostile. HR manager asked the standard strength and weakness question. HR manager also asked about salary requierement. HR manager stated that I will receive a second phone interview request, but that It could take two weeks due to upcoming corporate vacation time.
Interview Question – HR manager asked if I was interviewing or received any offers from other employers. Answer Question
