IT Co-op Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
University of Miami, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE in January 2014.

Interview Details – Saw GE recruiting on one of the booths in my college career fair. Said I was interested
for a coop for the fall and the interviewer said they were looking to fill a spot, gave her my resume and she said she would pass the resume to her hiring manager for a interview consideration the next week. Got called for an interview, nothing unexpected, mostly behavioral questions; How did you manage working with a difficult partner, tell about your biggest failure and how did you overcome it, etc.

Interview Question – Tell me about that time when you were absolutely stuck with a problem, what did you do?   Answer Question

ETL Lead Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter, the process took about about one month. I was interviewed over the phone by two separate ETL Architects and then scheduled to travel to the office site for the face to face interview with HR and my (to be) manager.
GE made all arrangements and travel and overnight stay was very smoothly executed. I was taken out on a tour of the city during the morning, interviewed in the afternoon and was on my way the same evening.
The decision to hire was communicated the very next day.

Interview Question – Did not find any question difficult. I was dreading having to answer typical HR type questions but the interview with HR turned out to be a chat. The technical interviews were not difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate as I really wanted the job at the time. This was a big mistake. I could gave got a significant amount more. Do your research folks.

REDP 10 Week Internship Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Schenectady, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE in February 2014.

Interview Details – Selected for an on campus interview after submitting through university career website. Called back in a few weeks for interview (Renewable Energy Leadership Development Program) on campus. Received call back for this program for full time.

Interview Question – Questions Included for 10 week internship program:
Behavioral Questions, Resume Run Through
Tell me about yourself.
What do you know about the renewable energy industry? (I.e. passion for renewable energy)
Why renewable energy development program?
Explain a time when you used a logical approach to solve a problem?
When have you failed to meet an objective?
What is your biggest weakness?
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – My credentials were more than what the internship wanted, and since I was looking for full time, they pushed me to interview for the full time development program (2 yr program).
They then flew me out to Schenectady for the interview for the full time program, not the 10 week internship program.
