    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    Very direct, full day of interviews. Several people from the leadership team participated. Since the leadership team participated in the interview the decision was made quickly. Be prepared to talk about what you did and how you were able to add value in your old jobs. Accountability is a good thing, but should also able to show depth of knowledge in specific functional area.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at GE (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I've only had a phone interview so far. Questions were pretty standard and straight forward. They wanted to know about my experience related to the job. If I was okay with the amount of travel required and what kind of compensation I am looking for. They also wanted to know why I was interested in GE and why I wanted to leave my current position. The recruiter gave me next steps immediately and encouraged me to keep in touch. The interview went well and I have an in-person interview soon.

The second interview asked questions about my experiences and future interests with the company. The questions were mostly based on my technical writing experience. The usual personality questions were asked as well.

    Customer Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Cleveland, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call(s) with recruiter and hiring manager that led to on-site interview approx. two weeks later. Interview lasted approx. 4 hours. Met with multiple team members throughout day of varying responsibility. Felt a bit hurried as I was shuffled from one appointment/"discussion" to the next. Didn't get a full tour of the facility which seemed unusual.

    Interview Questions

    • Was asked to name one trait my spouse/sig other/close friend would say is my greatest weakness, or something I need to work on. Asked a series of behavioral type questions from HR rep that reflected a lack of understanding of my past experiences and successes. Interview with would-be peers was awkward to say the least. They seemed unaware of the hiring manager's (their boss) desire to infuse leadership into the organization and hit me with many technical questions that were not relevant. Appreciated GE's willingness to offer feedback on my interview after informing me I wasn't selected for position. However, upon hearing the feedback I couldn't have disagreed with the feedback more...   Answer Question
