I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Schenectady, NY) in April 2015.
Simple and straightforward. There was an application followed by in-person interviews with three different people. I interviewed with the would-be manager, HR, and another leader who I would work with if offered the role. GE covered the travel and lodging costs for the interview. The interview was focused on experience oriented questions/behavioral. They were very interested in how I handled different scenarios.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GE.
Process took about a month. Applied through university website, had an interview about a month later and heard back within two days. Interview was very short and was only asked three quesitons. The interviewer did not seem very interested but that may have been because I was one of the last to interview for the position.

I applied for the position via he website and had an HR screening the following day. This focused on salary expectations and how my current role aligned with the position. Next, I interviewed with the team lead. We discussed my experiences in more detail and the technical value I could bring to the team. A day later, I was invited for an onsite interview but declined.
