Interviewed at GE Transportation
Interview Details – I applied through my school career center. I was a sophomore that year and sent out my resume to anywhere I could with a terrible cover letter. However, I was offered an on-campus interview with GE Transportation.
Interview Question – At that time, the most difficult question for me was: "What do you possess to stand from the other applicants". Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE Transportation.
Interview Details – Applied through my school's online recruiting page. Interview was scheduled for late September. It's a very laid back interview and almost entirely behavioral. They definitely care more about the interviewee being well-rounded as opposed to super smart. They are really looking for candidates for their development programs, and the intern pool makes up 95% of program members. Offer was received within a week of interviewing, although the interviewer pretty much told me I was going to get an offer when the interview ended.
Interview Question – How did you prepare for this interview? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at GE Transportation.
Interview Details –
Contacted by recruiter within a week of applying for job
Phone interview for the following week, very informal, and lasted about 15 minutes, with really basic questions about background and experience.
Second phone interview with 2 managers. This was more formal, more detailed questions about experience, and some behavioral questions.
About 1 week later invited for on-site interview. Received tour of facility and met with 4 different managers. Some spattering of common HR type questions mixed with more behavioral and problem-solving questions.
2nd on-site interview. I was told this interview was more just to test for personality fit since the feedback on my last interview was good, so it was less intense with questions and more conversational.
Heard back early the next week that they wanted to make me an offer.
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate, desired salary was met in initial offer.

Interview Details –
I had the manager call me and we had an interview right then. I was called in to Melbourne, FL two days later. I had interviewed with 3 Engineers, the manager and HR. I will say they kept saying "Be Specific" and I can not talk about previous experiences as that would be a conflict of technical information for other companies. I did not like the pressure of the engineers. I did state I can explain things in generic and system terms, but I can't go in debt as that is a breach of a security clearance.
The relocation package just plain was unacceptable unless you live in FL and are single with nothing. They offer a lump sum of $5,000.00 and that's about it. That is not nearly enough to move a family to Melbourne.
Interview Question – Why do you want to leave your current job? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined in the interview itself after trying to negotiate the fact the relocation can not be done in $5,000.00 for someone and the requisition states relocation is paid for in full.
