    Interview Details

    EEDP interview was half a day with 5 technical reps and an HR review. Heavy in technical background. Ultimately proved to be a good thing as I was very impressed with the technical strength of all members of the redo program.

    OMLP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at GE in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first found this position through my university's career services office. I was asked to submit my application documents on a Thursday, and I was scheduled for an interview on the following Tuesday. It was an on-campus interview, so that helped speed up the process.

    Only two days after the interview, I received a phone call from the person who had interviewed me. She told me that she really wanted to continue with me for the second round of interviews, but she needed to discuss my work status. Unfortunately, GE does not allow the working visa sponsorship for internationals to participate in the OMLP in the U.S. That was the end of my interview process for the program in the U.S. but I was told that my application would be forwarded to the OMLP program in Latin America.

    GE FMP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at GE in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consists of two parts.
    The first part was a telephone interview, which basically covered behavioural questions and tests my understanding of the company. Therefore, doing some homework on company's history, key leadership, and culture is very important.

    If you make it through the first round, you would be invited to an assessment centre that is the second part of the recruitment and should take at least half a day from you. In the assessment centre, I sat for a written test which covered some basic accounting knowledge. After that, all the candidates were given a main theme and situation where we were subdivided into different project teams. Each team would be dispatched for private discussion and in the end presented their solution to the situation given. The assessors (mainly financial managers) would evaluate your performance throughout the entire process, not only your presentation output, but also how each individual organised, coordinated the group discussion, or even managed the differences and conflicts.

    In the end, you would have an one-on-one interview with the finance managers. The content could be board, ranging from technical knowledge, personal experience, or even debrief of what happened during your group discussion.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question happened during the one-on-one interview process. I choose not to share it here coz it was a bit personal. However, the advice I can give is that don't be jammed for any unexpected questions and be as candid as you can. Don't pretend to know something that you actually don't know.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Lot's a behavioral questions, nothing hard. I spoke with three different people; HR interviewer and two managers. The conversations with the two managers were pretty laid back, and the HR woman asked more interviewer type questions.
