I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at GE Capital.Interview Details
Met through on-campus career fair, and received an interview for the next day to take place at my university . The interview was 30 minutes and strictly behavioral. All questions I had seen before and were really straight forward.
Within 2 days I had been offered an interview at their HQ in Norwalk, Connecticut. There was a dinner the night before with current FMP's which was great because we were able to ask them a lot of questions and they were pretty forward with their answers. The next morning consisted of a couple information sessions, two 30 minute interviews, and wrapped up with a lunch with more FMP's.
I got the official offer a week and a half later and accepted on the spot.Interview QuestionsNegotiation DetailsNo negotiation, as it is a rotational program.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
