Lead Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at GE in May 2014.

Interview Details

The HR contacted me and set up an interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager called on time. I felt he had some preconceived notion about me and my experience. There was minimal exchange of greetings and he was straight to the point about what/who he wanted for the position. Inquired about my experience but kept going back to the idea of who he wanted. Was not really keen on the pay scale either. Discounted my experience citing some vague reason. Frequently kept telling me that he was not so sure how I will fit into the position. To round it off, he offered me a salary that was laughable to say the least. I just said, "no".

Interview Questions
  • We did not get to the technical round. The hiring manager was not too keen on even accepting me as a viable fit to the position although I had the relevant experience necessary as per the HR recruiter.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

Did not like the hiring manager's disposition and mannerisms. If this is the situation in the preliminary conversation, I can hardly assume what's it going to be like working under him (that, too, at a lower salary than I had expected).

I think I will look for other opportunities where at the least, people are courteous and in general have a bright outlook.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    I thought the interview process was very professional. It started with a "screen" interview with the GE recruiter, followed by an interview with the hiring manager, followed by a group technical interview, followed by an onsite panel interview.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at GE in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Didn't get a phone interview but got selected for a 1 day(5 hour interview). We all sat in a room around laptops and given problems and asked to develop them in the Eclipse/Java environment. They had people who had no Eclipse experience and No java experience in the so I don't know how they got in the room in the first place. The manager said solve the best way you know how and language shouldn't be too difficult even if you don't know java. After the 4 problems that was giving to me - I accomplished the 3 easiest. And then we went to group solving in which case I got partnered w/ someone who barely spoke english. We did a first round completion of group problem to find out the Instructor(manager) said there were little caveats that we didn't think though and wasn't really solveable during the class.

    After that was a basic HR interview - behavioral questions such as when did resolve conflict..etc..

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at GE in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    After 6 years of posting for open jobs, a recruiter called me and she sounded energetic and positive.. The interview was easy going, show up and feel comfortable. Decision was supposed to be made in 2 weeks but it took 4 months to make salary offer bring me on board.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you really want a job here? Only the hiring manager was in the office for the interview. One lead was called on the phone and another went home to take care of child. Dept head never showed up.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Did not negotiate as the salary was reasonable. Others were able to negotiate for another week vacation but it did them little good as company announced additional weeks vacation for all new hires a month later.

    Beaurocratic. They made a verbal offer and then it took weeks to get the offer letter to me. Should have been a sign of things to come.

    I didn't negotiate, but knowing what I know now I would have asked for more money given the stress that this job has caused.
