    Edison Engineering Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    It was an on-campus interview when I was a freshmen. I was threw off when the recruiter first asked me if I had any questions for her. As she was taking notes, I was thinking about any question that I could ask her. Eventually, the whole interview process was all about me asking her questions. Towards the end, I asked her if she had any question for me. She, then, asked me to introduce myself. It was not a pleasant interview experience.
