    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    I had to submit a CV and covering letter and a few online questions. I was informed that I got through to the next stage and I had to do three online situational tests, which were pretty straightforward. I was offered a telephone interview. It was in three parts (general questions, motivational questions and competency questions). The questions were as follows:

    1) What degree are you doing? Where would be your preferred location? Are you available to start working between June and August 2015? Are you proficient at Word, Excel and Powerpoint?

    2) Why do you want to work at GE? Why have you chosen the Financial Risk Programme? What have you learnt about GE? Who are our main competitors?

    3) Talk about a time when you were in a difficult situation and how did you overcome it? What were your aims? What was the feedback you got from this?

    Talk about a time when you taught yourself a new language or skill. How did you go about doing this?

    Interview Questions
    • Who are GE's main competitors? I literally had no clue how to answer this question.   Answer Question

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GE in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the internship, GE contacted me about a week later saying that they have reviewed my CV and invited me to take SHL Talent Measurement tests.

    I had about a week to complete the tests, they were mainly personality and situation judgement tests.

    The following days I was contacted again saying I would get I phone interview and I had to email with the date and time I was available from a schedule they gave me.

    The phone interview was motivational and competency based. The phone interview is the 2nd stage of the hiring process and it's made mainly by an outsourcing company, therefore you won't get an offer directly after the interview.
