Innovation

From the outset, innovation has been part of GE’s DNA. That means being surrounded by bright, interesting people working together on new and exciting projects. It means trying to find new and better ways of doing things. And it means enjoying a career with extraordinary opportunities and enormous potential.

A career at GE offers you access to some of the most exciting and dynamic challenges of your lifetime.

Integrity

Integrity is an essential component of life at GE. It is how we conduct ourselves and how we do business. It is non-negotiable. While some businesses prize results over ethics, we value both. At GE we believe that how you do something is as important as what you do. We provide you with the training and opportunities to enjoy a successful career you can be proud of, now and for the rest of your life.

Citizenship

GE's approach to citizenship is a full-time commitment with the same goals, strategies and accountabilities that drive any other part of our business. GE applies its long-standing spirit of innovation and unique set of capabilities to take on tough challenges in our communities.

 

 

REWARDS & BENEFITS

GE strives to provide competitive employee benefits packages in the regions and industries in which we have a presence. Our wide range of employee services, retirement, health and other benefit plans are designed to help eligible employees make the best decisions for themselves, their family, and their lifestyle.

GE offers innovative programs to help our eligible employees gain more value from their healthcare benefits. Through HealthAhead, GE has further committed to improve the health of our employees and their families by creating a 'culture of health' which will deliver onsite and on-line programs, education, tools and services. We have also developed a global, industry-leading site certification program that will recognize excellence in worksite health.

We're confident that the benefits programs we offer our employees match our reputation as a world class employer.

LEADERSHIP & LEARNING

GE believes in developing the talent of new employees with programs designed to give in-depth experience and build skills that are crucial to our long-term success. Our heritage is built on continuous learning, which is why we invest more than $1 billion annually in training and education offerings. In addition to the GE Global Learning Program, employees can take advantage of tuition reimbursement benefits to help improve their skills, grow their career, or get a loan to help pay for their family's higher education.

    DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVENESS

As a global company with operations in more than 100 countries, diversity isn't merely a noble idea — it's the reflection of our business. Every day, GE works to ensure that all employees, no matter where they are located in the world and no matter where they come from, have an opportunity to contribute and succeed.

    I have been working at GE full-time

    Pros

    You can't beat the leadership skills and breadth of experience you can acquire at GE. In a huge, successful, global company like GE, you can get the experience in 1 job that could take you 4-5 jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Change is a constant. While positive change is good, the changes are often wasted energy as a result of constant organizational movements and new leaders marking their territory or making their presence felt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to place a higher premium on the leadership traits that make employees want to rally behind our leaders. I see too many people getting promoted who play good politics and align themselves with the right sponsor, but they often aren't the people you want want to work with or for.

    Union Relations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at GE.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by company recruiter, who then set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. Next step was an onsite all day interview at the corporate headquarters with multiple HR people. After successfully passing that portion of the interview I had another onsite all day interview at the plant location, where the actual opening was. This interview was with HR, the plant manager, operations managers and I met with the union officials. Both all day interviews were very casual and laid back. I was asked specific questions but there didn't seem to be a real format.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were either about my past history or conversational about who I am in general.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated an additional 10% on the salary, but in hindsight should have also negotiated additional time off.
