    Process took about a month. Applied through university website, had an interview about a month later and heard back within two weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    4 Week Process: Lured In with a great phone Interview with the recruiter talking about several solutions I architected, technology used, security issues, etc., and how I led teams to implement these solutions in the areas of cloud, big data, and mobile leveraging SOA and data integration solutions. She said she'd forward to hiring/selection team. No feedback or second interview from the selection team. After passing the first interview, the GE HR team cancelled every other phone interview for other positions that I had applied for because they wanted me to focus on this one particular position. After 4 weeks of followup emails, I received an email that I said I was "fantastic and very accomplished with awesome leadership skills" but they have filled the position with someone more qualified. I went online to resubmit for the others that I was suddenly dropped for and found out the job is still open and remains open until this day. Beware of the shady recruiting tactics of this company. The initial interviewer was nice, but the "reject" notice was a complete fabrication

    Interview Questions

    • Describe you background in architecture? Any background in cloud, big data, SOA, mobile and IoT architecture and design? Explain Do you have any background in EA and/or solutions architecture? What is the largest team you've led? Tell me about the most complex solution you were a part of? Where do you see yourself in 5 years.   1 Answer
