Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at GE in August 2010.

Interview Details

GE was scrambling to staff a smart meter project. After a brief chat with a Lead Engineer, I interviewed 1:1 with a few of the staff and started as a contractor a few weeks later. I went through the same process again about 13 months later to convert to full time.

Interview Questions
  • It was a pretty standard interview, no difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Pretty standard, I asked for a $5k bump, got verbal agreement and it was missing in the paper version. It took a little pressure to get the agreed to amount.

    Application Details

    interviewed at GE in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I submitted the application during a GE campus recruiting promotion and got the response from the company after a long time when I almost took the offer from another company. The first interview was via phone, mainly focus on technical competency interview. The interview went well and I was impressed with the interviewer's professional manners and also had good impression with the company.After that I was told to have an on-site interview which include both a technical presentation plus Q&A session and a HR interview. The technical one ran very well and I thought I gave a good impression to the interview team.But the HR interview I though was not good.But maybe because I was a fresh graduate at that time,my judgement is not correct and finally they gave me the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at GE in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Referred through a known person, got an interview call with Job description. The hiring manager contacted me by phone to set up the interview date. On the day of interview, the Hiring manager welcomed me from the reception area to the meeting room. The interview panel was of 3 members including the hiring manger and 2 other technical persons. Interview was purely technical on project that I had worked on previously. They didn't want me to divulge any proprietary information. The next set of questions were based on the area of work that I would be recruited for. The whole theme of the technical interview was to see how talented the person is and how he adapts to different situations,. It was extremely professional. Next was the HR interview (includes the HR manager and the COE manager). Typical HR questions for example on why I was leaving the previous one and interested in joining this company. Only question on pay was the current CTC and expectation. No negotiations as they have a salary band for each position. Got hired, received the joining date and formalities required to be completed.
