    Interview Details

    Es gab zwei Vorstellungsgespräche in denen mehre Entscheider und die Personalabteilung eingebunden war. Es wurden keine schwierigen Fragen gestellt sondern normale Fragen zur Motivation und Lebenslauf. Danach wurde zunächst der Unternehmensbereich eingeordnet, was bei GE gar nicht so einfach ist und durchaus eine viertel Stunde dauern kann. Auch der zukünftige Chef war offen und hat aus seinem Lebenslauf erzählt, damit man ein Bild bekommen konnte, mit wem man zusammen arbeitet.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    Online application first, then situational judgement test,then telephone interview. The online SJT is simple enough, you listen and wathch to different animated situations and give your best choice. The telephone interview was a bit early in the morning and it lasted about 20 min. The questions were: 1. why do you want to work for GE? 2. Why do you want the Business Management placement? 3. What is GE's culture? 4. Tell me about a time when you overcome a difficult situation. 5. Tell me about a time when you learned a new system or a laguage. Other questions just confirm your courses and location preference.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult one is the compentency one asking your experience about learning a new language or a system. It's really hard when you don't have am example at hand!   Answer Question

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at GE in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Recruiting, hiring and Interview process was long and difficult. All pre-employment phases were lengthy, difficult, tedious, tiring and represented a boring level of waiting for decisions and responses back. Lots of back and forth communications, phones calls, emails, etc. Long decision process, salary received was less than anticipated. I (personally) participated in many role model practice sessions and practice interview sessions, before the actual interview date arrived. Lots of online and interview preparatory research on my part, which allowed me to ace the phone screen and the 1st in person interview. The required drug test is a no-brainer, type pass, for a 100% drug free candidate.
     I was working in a different state, so the drive up was a little complicated, but overall the GE negotiations process was lengthy and tiresome. I think that much of it was unnecessary and a bit over the top. Lots of interview questions, tons of meet and greet events on the interview day. Many pre-employment promises made, many left unfilled after the initial hiring occurred. Intense competition for a few jobs, time was extremely limited for each candidate and it was very demanding and convoluted at times and during the whole process. Not something I would like to repeat in this life time. Professional dress, neatness and proper hygiene are absolutely required for a GE interview, shorts and sandals will not do, here. If the candidate smokes, do not do this immediately before the actual interview, it will be viewed as poor form. Professional ladies, too much makeup, heavy jewellery, visible tattoos and piercings, weird hair colours, sneakers, t-shirts, etc. will not be tolerated (think 1950's, female charm) . Interview lateness, is a no-no. An unkempt appearance is a no-no for a GE interview. Polish, poise and charm will win them over, every time.

    Leas Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GE in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a screening phone interview just days after applying. I then went in for a panel interview with 3 people. Nobody showed up until 5 minutes after the scheduled start and it was only one person. Then about 10 minutes into the interview, a second interviewer arrived. Immediately, he started grilling me about my job experiences and made condescending comments and faces upon every response. It seemed that he had a superiority complex. It was the most unprofessional interview I've ever been a part of. For the record, the third interviewer never showed. Following the interview, I received a fairly low offer, but had such a bad taste in my mouth from the interview process that I immediately declined.
