Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at General Motors.

Interview Details – There was one interview. Was sat in a group of others who were also being interviewed (for different positions) in a room where a brief presentation on what GM was about took place. Then I was interviewed by two engineers, one at a time. The questions generally took the STAR interview approach.

Interview Question – Give me a time when you had to solve a problem where others before you had failed.   Answer Question

Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at General Motors in February 2011.

Interview Details – Initially contacted by a "Talent Acquisition" personnel requesting for more information. The information was said to be given to the hiring manager for further consideration.
A week later, I was contacted for an on site interview at the VEC. The visit consisted of a brief orientation about the position and then an interview with managers. Interview based of STAR behavioral questions. Really enjoyable interview. Managers were really friendly. A week later, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – When did you successfully mastered a new topic or gained new knowledge as part of project?   Answer Question
