    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    GM has outsourced the candidate screening process and HR is still ironing out the bugs. The interview preparation instructions stated to record the responses to questions. HR was unsure of what to instruct candidates to bring a video or a typed presentation. The interviews were one hour sessions with the Global Program Manager and the Engineering Manager. The questions were STAR format behavioral focused.

    Pleasant interviewers (4 in two sessions) but they read questions prepared by a consulting/testing company that usually causes qualified candidates to be rejected. Same stubborn, muleheaded company that went bankrupt before.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Use of the Lominger Competencies. Interviews are done by mid-level mangers with a scripted interview guide available to applicants. The process is a bit lengthy and relies on the interviewee to answer questions starting with, "Tell us about a time when you.....". Some find this very difficult, especially if you have limited to no work experience. Everything is scored, lots of notes are taken, and you are interviewed by two sets of people who compare notes afterwards.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about a time wen you were given ambiguous direction by your supervisor and what you did to accomplish the task.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate but was not well-versed in it. Recommend learning how to negotiate salary.
