Pasadena, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE in March 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was initiated through a recruiting company that I applied to online. The interview was approximately an hour long with two project engineers. It began with basic work history and experience questions. Then I was asked technical questions about thermodynamics which was unexpected and I had a difficult answering them in detail.

Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer
Louisville, KY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at GE in June 2010.

Interview Details – I had on-site interview at their Louisville office. There were 6 interviews (5 technical, 1 HR). All of them 1:1. People were all very nice and knowledgeable about their product and process.
As far as interview questions, everyone asked more less the same behavioral questions. I should have prepared for these predictable questions.

Niskayuna, NY

The process took a day - interviewed at GE in February 2010.

Interview Details – Lab manager sent me an email after submitting resume through GE website for about 2 weeks. He asked to describe the research work on my resume. One week later I got a rejection letter. I believe the reason is that he is looking for a more experienced person even though the job is for entry level.
