    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at GE (Columbus, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a scheduled call (instead of the in-person) and the person on the phone just said "perfect" after each answer. No attempt to engage in conversation or dialogue. It sounded like a very green student with a headset.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very static and didn't dig in to anything about me. It was more compusary asking things that were clearly listed in my resume and I'd already done in the application process and previous calls. Nothing about my actual skills. Complete waste of time.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GE (Danbury, CT) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communication was great, the recruiter was persistent, then we interviewed and I had to keep following up for weeks before they told me the position was cancelled. Would have appreciated responses since I was told I would be brought in for an interview.

    Interview

    Phone screening from Talent Recruitment team, then an invitation to attend an in-person interview with a manager in the same location, as well as a telepresence interview with a manager in another location (held one after another on the same day). First interview was quite comprehensive, but the second interview was completely informal. Received an offer the next day
