    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    My interview process was quick, because I had an offer from another company when I interviewed with GM. I got a call and asked if I was still interested in a position. Then my interview was set up for the end of the week and I met with two people who were apart of the department I was interviewing for. Then the middle of the next week I had the job offer. It was really quick and painless.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked all situational questions then you had to discuss the outcome of that situation and how it effects your current decisions. For example, explain a time when you made a choice where you didn't have enough information. Then, what was the outcome of not having enough information for your decision and now how do you no approach information based decisions.   1 Answer

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Both levels of interviews are the same. They do static behavioral interviewing. I say static because I'm used to a more dynamic interview process. It wasn't friendly at all.

    The entire process needs fixed as I received an invite for the wrong job, day, and time; and had other mistakes along the way.

    Interview Questions

    • A behavioral question, followed by the same few questions that never really applied to my answer/response, such as why I selected that method, what I learned, and how I'd use it again in the future. These didn't apply, were repetitive, and quite frankly the stupidest interviews I've ever had. I didn't say those exact words in the interview but let them know the questions were not relevant to my answers (I could have answered those all the same). They never asked about skills or what I was looking for.

      I'd suggest covering skills in phone interview then a dynamic behavioral interview in person, asking about feelings, concerns, etc. that are typically asked in this type of interview rather than stagnant questions that aren't relevant.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at General Motors (Lansing, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 separate interviews on the same day. Each interview was conducted with 2 people asking questions at a time. They use the STAR format with the addition on what you learned and how you applied it going forward. Be prepared to give examples using specific situations. They were more interested in what you learned from the situations. Also ask them questions about the environment which you will work, their experience, future growth and any thing else to aide in your decision making process. You are interviewing them as well so be engaged.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    If the salary doesn't fit, speak up. Don't just decline the offer, or accept it and complain about it. Don't be afraid to negotiate. But remember you can negotiate down not up so start at your higher asking salary. I was able to increase my offer and my current salary.

    It was a 2-hour long video interview. The managers described who they are and what they do First. Then I did my self-introduction.
