Senior Software Engineer Interview
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at General Motors.
You will get a call from someone in the Talent Acquisition department first. Some basic questions regarding your experience and eligibility will be asked. If they determine you're a good candidate, they will arrange an actual onsite interview. The interview questions are standard questions from a GM interview book. Not technically oriented. They do look into your experience and skills/knowledge but don't make you write code on white board or things like that.
- Nothing really too difficult or unexpected. For example, they would ask "give me an example in your job when you felt you're in very difficult situation and why". Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in June 2013.
It is a behavioral interview which means they are looking for you to explain situations where you overcame adversity. There is no white boarding or in depth technical review but there was high level discussion of the technologies they are looking for. The main goal seems to be testing how well I worked with others. During the interview I first meet with a developer, and then a PM. The interview concluded with a very brief meeting with the director for that area.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in May 2013.
I was hired because of referral, interview is mostly behavioral, bunch of HR type questions - prepare stories about how you approached an issue, how you took initiative, how you solved something, show that you are technical and also good at communication/team work etc
- tell us about someone's performance feedback when you dont think of them much tell us about a time when you were given and assignment where you either fix it or give up in some fixed amount of time Answer Question
everything is negotiable, do get it in writing they bargain like fish-market, be prepared to say NO the hr is outsourced, and will go back on their word
