AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Antonio, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details – I was hired through a head hunter to fill a critical role within GE. You will be interviewed by several sets of managers. First a phone screen with recruiters, next HR, then Regional Manager, finally General Manager.

Interview Question – Honestly, they are all the same no matter what fortune level company you go to. If you can't answer a question about what you have done in your career then you might want to stay where you are.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They wanted me pretty bad and I told them what I expected. They met my expectations.

ITLP - Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE in October 2013.

Interview Details – I had two phone interviews with previous ITLPs. We discussed things like my technology experience, why I was drawn to the job, etc. It was not a "tricky" interview -- very much just a conversation.

Interview Question – "When have you used technology to make something more efficient?" That's one of the main goals of ITLP but it was kind of a curveball for me.   Answer Question

Operator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Midland, TX

The process took 4 months - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details – Hiring process was done mostly over the phone initially since I was living in Dallas and interviewing for the position in west Texas. I had to apply online. From initial contact to hire date was over 4 months. I had to fill out the same online application 3 separate times which was frustrating.

Negotiation Details – I was offered the standard hourly rate and informed about how bonuses and raises were earned.

Edison Engineering Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at GE.

Interview Details – It was an on-campus interview when I was a freshmen. I was threw off when the recruiter first asked me if I had any questions for her. As she was taking notes, I was thinking about any question that I could ask her. Eventually, the whole interview process was all about me asking her questions. Towards the end, I asked her if she had any question for me. She, then, asked me to introduce myself. It was not a pleasant interview experience.

Interview Question – Nearly no questions from the recruiter.   Answer Question
