    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in February 2015.

    Interview

    There was a phone screening first, nothing technical. Then two interviews after that. Both in person interviews were mostly behavioral questions, pretty much "Tell me about a time when...". Both interviewers were very nice and answered any questions that I had. There were also a couple of recruiters there to cover basics about benefits/days off/etc...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    They had two people interview me, it lasted around 2 hours. I believe it was 45 minutes for each individual and the last minutes left to ask questions. They had packets to with a ton of questions to ask me about, so that was the reason the interview took so long.

    Interview Questions

    • It was most behavioral questions that focused on teamwork. They are looking for people that can work in a team. Most difficult question: "How did you deal with someone that was not doing their work? How did you handle the situation? What would you change?"   Answer Question

About a week later I received a call and they scheduled a phone screen. Again, only behavioral questions. Then I received another call from HR. They said they want to give me an offer and I could choose between 3 locations. I had to wait few weeks to actually get an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors (Roswell, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out a pre-application at a career, didnt think much of it. A week or so later I got an email telling me to show up at 7:45 the next morning for a "final interview". I guess they like you to be unprepared. They showed us the typical, "Look, dont you want to work for us?" presentation, then we had interviews with two people. The first guy I got was pretty unpleasant. I really just think he thought I was "weird" and didn't like me. Anyway, he asked a series of your typical bs interview questions, and they demand that you answer them in a rigid series of steps, and if a step didn't apply to your answer, I guess that was just seen as a failing on your part. He acted as if he couldn't comprehend my answers and wrote my answers down in a way that made me look bad, then refused to correct them. I felt like walking out of that interview, and I wish I had. The second guy I talked to was very nice and asked a couple of easy questions. That night, I was informed via email that I needed to apply to all the jobs I was interested in. Because applying after an interview makes perfect sense. Needless to say, within a week or two, I got a generic, "don't feel there's a strong match" email.
