    Process Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GE Power & Water.

    Interview Details

    Long hiring process with months between steps. I was first contacted for a phone interview with the hiring manager a month after I applied to the position. It was a 30 minute interview with basic questions about my past experience, why I wanted the job, and information about the position. Right off the bat I wasn't so interested because the hiring manager was across the country from where I'd be working. I then didn't hear back until 2 months later from a corporate recruiter also across the country who wanted to talk for a second phone interview and if that went well then an in person interview. I declined because by this time I had accepted another offer with a company with a timely process. I understand they are a large company but I feel they can easily lose a lot of talent with their unorganized and slow process. I definitely wouldn't omit them for a job in the future, I just couldn't wait around on them when I had another amazing offer waiting.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GE Power & Water in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with 4 people. I was originally scheduled for 3 people, but got one added during the actual on site. The first manager was the founder of this program, she asked me some basic questions like what's your career goals, why interested etc. then she helped me prepare for the rest of interviews. The other 3 interviewers are on the technical side, and they asked me questions based on my resume and experiences. One of the technical person actually spoke more about the position than ask me questions. Overall, there is few behavioral based question

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE Power & Water.

    Interview Details

    Interview was simple due to previous experience. 1 Lunch interview with the manager and then follow up phone interview with the Regional Manager.
    Hiring - not so simple. Due to "potential" non-compete issues (of which there were none), they required that I notify current employer of my desire to leave so they could clear the non-compete. All before an offer letter. Due to my desire to leave, I was ok with it, but it put me in a very precarious situation.
