    - I was contacted by phone asking why I am leaving my current job.
    - 2 weeks later I was contacted to schedule an in person interview.
    - I was interviewed by 2 managers, they did not ask anything about my work experience. All their questions were STAR questions. The interview took about 2 hours (1 hour for each manager)

    The process took a dayinterviewed at General Motors in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Position was for development of new materials for fuel cell membranes. Gave a presentation on Ph.D. work on proton exchange membranes which was well received. During the interviews, only "target" interview questions were asked, such as, "Tell me about a time you had to make a difficult decision." "What was the biggest mistake you've ever made?" Memorize answers to questions like those and you will be FINE.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Motors in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    In person interview is a joke. Be prepared to be interviewed by guys who can't speak english properly, and therefore some questions were (maybe intentionally) misleading and confusing. Interview consisted of STAR and confusing technical questions. Overall a very negative experience. GM has not learnt from its mistakes, and will be bankrupt again soon.
