Software Developer Interview

Software Developer

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in February 2014.

Interview Details – It was very easy. They only did a 1st round interview at my schools career fair. About 4-5 weeks later I got a call with the job offer. I do not believe I was asked any technical questions. They're trying to get the overall IT department up to about 10,000 people. Right now we're at about 8,000. Unless you were with HP, IBM, Dell, or a previous contractor they only want college hires.

Interview Question – Nothing about the interview was difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The money was more than expected, so I gladly accepted.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Roswell, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring Process Took around 3 weeks.
I was 1st contacted by a GM recruiter where he did a screening to see if I was qualified outside of my resume. Afterwards in 5 days I interviewed with the hiring manager in Detroit via the phone. Questions were very direct and the manager knew who/what he was looking for in a candidate. I think had a face to face via Virtual Webcam with Hiring Manager and supervisor. Both sessions were 1 hour long. Finally Hiring manager advised me a decision would be made in about 3 business days. I then got a call back in about 1 hour offering me the job. Seamless process with a great company that knew who and what they were looking for.

Interview Question – None. All standard questions for the business analyst profession.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Didn't have to negotiate. Offer was well above my asking so I was very satisfied.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Warren, MI

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at General Motors in February 2014.

Interview Details – Meet with HR for a 30 min review of benefits and overview of the company. Switched rooms and was interviewed by two lower level managers regarding my resume and past experience (this part of the process lasted 1 hour). After this section of the interview was over, two upper level managers entered the room and asked situation questions and a number of repetitive questions that were asked by the previous managers.

Interview Question – Some of the situation questions were difficult to answer because of how general the question was.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I didn't feel the job was a good fit for me after the interview.

Senior Software Developer – Data Integration Interview

Senior Software Developer – Data Integration
North Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in June 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview that was technical...lasted an hour. In person interview followed a couple of weeks later. Company overview with an HR person followed by two interviews with managers...about an hour each. As others have mentioned this was more about how you handle different situations...no real technical questions. Nice office space, nice people, but everyone is fairly new. It's hard to tell what the things will be like over the next couple of years.

Interview Question – What would I do differently in a difficult situation that I had just described where I was unhappy with the outcome?   View Answer
