    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Warren, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very professional. Received a call a week after applying online. First scheduled telephone interview, then a week after the telephone interview, there was a in person interview. Interviewers made the process very comfortable for you. May take some time to hear back for an offer, but be patient, there are a lot of good things happening at GM and the process of bringing in high quality talent takes time.
