Very Easy Interview

Intern - Hourly Interview

Intern - Hourly
Jacksonville, FL

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at GE Transportation in June 2012.

Interview Details – Phone interview, just the standard behavioral questions. If you just research behavioral interview questions on google and read them and write responses for them you should be more than prepared. The behavioral questions are honestly just common sense questions. No studying is really necessary except the fact studying the questions and making responses will make your answers more natural sounding to the interviewer.

Negotiation Details – Sent and email with the weekly pay amount for a forty hour work week.
