Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Minden, NV Sep 2009 – Reviewed May 2, 2013
Interview Details – My initial interview was after a summer internship. It was a single interview that consisted of 3 employees. One employee was my champion and was there to reduce nervousness. Basically I already new him from my internship. He did not ask any technical questions, but was my fit interviewer/advocate. The technical interview lasted about 2 hours and mainly consisted of standard algorithm questions, data structure questions, and some high level questions regarding computer architecture.

Interview Details – GE recruited at my college. After applying online, I was contacted by a manager for a phone interview. The interview consisted of your typical HR type questions. I made sure to express my interest for airplanes (I was interviewing for GE Aviation). I completed a phone interview, and was sent an offer a few weeks later. The process was streamlined and simple.

Interview Details –
Completed the candidate profile and resume submission online. Within 4 days I received an e-mail questionnaire that contained general questions (why are you leaving your present job, current salary, expected salary) and asked about my experience in various technologies.
A week and a half after completing the e-mail questionnaire I was contacted for a telephone screen/interview with the hiring manager. The telephone screen was centered on my experience and included time for me to ask questions about the position and company.
A week after the telephone screen I was asked to come on site for an interview. I interviewed 5 individuals, one at a time, for 30 minutes each. All 5 interviews were over teleconference. Two of the individuals were potential co-workers, and three were managers who were not the hiring manager. The interview setting was very comfortable and while the process was long, it was not terribly difficult. Questions ranged from typical behavioral-style questions to technical inquiries.
Two weeks after my interview, my status on the careers website changed to "GE is not pursuing your candidacy for this position". I did not receive any other notification.
Interview Question – All of the interviewers were very interested in how I kept current with new technologies. Unfortunately the types of technologies used in this position are not ones that someone can easily learn on their own, and my current employer does not provide such opportunities. So my answers were likely insufficient. I probably should have expanded on ways I WISHED I could keep current with new technologies. Answer Question
