    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty simple. There was a career fair in my school. I approached the recruiters about more information, next thing I know I have an interview with them.

    After the interview (which was purely behavior questions) - kind of normal for a first interview. I was told to wait for them to contact me.

    About a week after I received an email from one of the recruiters letting me know that I have an interview at a particular time. I was not given a heads up or anything, so that was kind of frustrating.

    During the interview they went over a power point, kind of trying to sell you on GM because lets face it as a graduating college students we all may get approached by different companies. Then we did a tour of the building, showing us where the magic happens and finally it was the interview.

    The interview was all behavioral questions again - no technical questions, mainly because they put you through an intense training program once you get hired.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. What was one wrong decision that you made in the past and what was the outcome?
      2. What was a risk that you took recently and what happened after you took that risk?
      3. Tell me about a time when you were presented with a problem, but did not have the tools to solve the problem.
      4. Why do you want to work for GM? What made you chose us?
