I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at General Motors in October 2013.
Interview Details – Interview was done on LOMINGER format by two interviewers. Both the interviewers were related to the post where the candidate will be hired. Very typical behavioral question, but at times it seemed they were rather uninterested.

Interviewed at General Motors
Interview Details – Good planning and communication. Behavioral interview with few technical questions. Very good interviewers behaved in a professional manner.

Negotiation Details – Poor. No room for negotiation at all.
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at General Motors.
Interview Details – Approached them for the first time at a national career fair. Although my background is in a different field, I got an interview the same day. They prepared me for the questions ahead of time. A friend approached the same booth for a different position, and was interviewed that day by OnStar. The three questions related to: learning something quickly, problem solving ability, and leadership.
Interview Question – The questions were typical behavioral questions. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at General Motors in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied online to the job posting. One week later I received a call with basic questions regarding availability, citizenship status and other similar questions. A week after that I received another call to schedule the interview. It was a two-part behavioral interview with two different managers for each part. A small test was performed to check my understanding of some of the basic functions of the position: GD&T tests with conflicting tolerances (trick question, but very simple).
It was my first interview. I think my answers were relatively good (maybe missing the WOW! factor). It was my first time using the STAR system used by many employers today for the interview process. It could have gone better.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when... View Answer
I applied in-person and interviewed at General Motors.
Interview Details – They visited my campus for a career fair. After approaching them, they asked if I had time for a pre-screening interview. I agreed and the pre-screening went in a very generic fashion with HR questions about me working in a team, working with other cultures, biggest challenges, etc. Afterwards, I was asked to stay for another more formal interview. A technical representative then questioned me about my work experience, skill set, technical interests, and asked additional personality assessment questions.
Interview Question – What is biggest risk you have taken and how did it affect your life? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in October 2013.
Interview Details – First there was a screening call (very brief) with the recruiter; then an hour-long phone interview with the hiring manager (including technical questions); then a session of in-person interviews over an afternoon, with senior people in the department (a mix of technical questions and general questions). In all cases, there was a big behavioral focus to the questions, such as "tell me about a time when you did x....what was the outcome....what did you learn from it.....how have you applied the learning from it".
Interview Question – Give an example of when you had to make a difficult decision and how did you make the decision? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The negotiation was with the original recruiter, which was somewhat difficult since he had no idea about some of the specifics of the position. He also was not able to do any sort of negotiation on vacation time, although did seem to "go to bat" for me on the overall salary, with the hiring manager. I was able to negotiate a few more thousand than what was originally offered (which was already a good offer.)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in October 2013.
Interview Details – I approached them at a career fair and remembered most of them from last year's career fair. They instantly scheduled a first round interview for the next day. After doing well on that, they scheduled interviews for specific positions the following week. It wasn't technical at all and they were nice.
