    Ops Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    When they decide to move ahead, they really move. Got a call and did a phone interview and a week later they flew me out. The interview consisted of hoping around through maybe 6-8 interview sessions, a short tour with a disgruntled Union employee and that was it. I had maybe two follow up phone calls, one an interview with the plant manager and that was all she wrote. I thought it would be harder....

    Negotiation Details
    They asked what i wanted and I'd never been asked that before and they gave me much more than I had planned on, but cost of living is greater out here as well.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Selected for an on campus interview after submitting through university career website. Called back in a few weeks for interview (Renewable Energy Leadership Development Program) on campus. Received call back for this program for full time.

    Interview Questions

      Behavioral Questions, Resume Run Through

      When have you failed to meet an objective?
      What is your biggest weakness?
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    My credentials were more than what the internship wanted, and since I was looking for full time, they pushed me to interview for the full time development program (2 yr program).
    They then flew me out to Schenectady for the interview for the full time program, not the 10 week internship program.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at GE in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview not conducted by direct boss but by underlings. Very strange since after been hired direct manager started manipulating me and playing games. It seemed the chemistry was not there and decided to lay obstacles for my exit. On interview was promised training by mentor but after been hired you discover that you are on your own. On yearly review manager complained I asked too many questions which caused disruptions. Explained it was caused by my curiosity and total lack of training but was totally ignored.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at GE in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Logistics were real complicated, the Recruiter wasn't responsive and arranged everything last min.
    But the interviews were a great opportunity to meet the team. i met or had conference calls with 5 people. They were more like conversations where they described the role and assessed my fit with the team.

    Business Transitions Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at GE in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for two different positions: first on the Communications team, a role which I wasn't offered, and subsequently on the Business Transitions team, which I was considerably happier about and accepted as soon as the role was offered. The process started with a phone call from HR about 2 weeks after I had submitted my application through both my universtiy and the GE Careers website. I elected to interview one week following the phone call. The interview (with the Communications team) consisted of 2 group interviews and a one-on-one interview with the team leader. The atmosphere was quite relaxed, and the questions asked were quite standard fare. I found out 2 days after that I didn't get this position but was being considered for a different one on another team. One week later, I interviewed for the Business Transitions intern role, and had a similar 3 panel interview, which was again fairly relaxed. Two days after the interview, I received a call from HR and my offer letter a few days afterwards.

    There were no negotiations for this position; however, I did hear that another intern stated upfront that he would only be able to spend 9 months in the position instead of the customary/required 12 months, and he was still offered te position.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at GE in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me about the position since I am currently employed and not looking. He did a short screening with me and then I had to "apply" online. After that he sent me questions via email and had me answer them and then another phone interview with him. My answers to both the email questions and the phone screening were then sent to the hiring manager.

    A couple of days later the recruiter called me back to say that the hiring manager wanted to have phone interview with me. Phone inteview with hiring manager was 30 minutes and he invited me on site for an interview.

    The onsite interview was a full day of interviews starting at 11am and going past 5pm. Each hour was with a different person and one interview was during lunch (eat, talk, answer questions). Everyone was very nice, engaging, bright and focused. I personally had a great time meeting with everyone and discussing the vision and direction of the business.

    No questions were out of the ordinary, the typical what are your strengths, weaknesses, greatest accomplishment, how would your supervisor describe you, are you techincal enough for the position and how so, etc. In the first interview he had me grab the dry erase pen and go up to the white board and in 8 minutes teach him about something.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schenectady, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schenectady, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at GE in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied either through GE's own site or Indeed. Initially contacted by phone. I was bit confused about the position since the title of the position was for one thing but when I arrived for an interview it was for a different product. Although both involved manufacturing engineering it threw me a bit in the interview. The interview involved touring the grounds while being asked questions which involved basic problem solving and questions that someone with the required background would know. Facilities seemed typical for the position and employees were friendly. Offices were a bit dreary, no windows, cubicle farm. The interviewer was very polite and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Also answered follow up questions after the interview.

    Interview was both technical and behavioral.

Behavioral questions included how I was able to compromise when working with individuals with different viewpoints.
