    Associate Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Pontiac, MI) in August 2013.

    Interview

    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.
