How we deliver results is as important as the results themselves. GE seeks to lead in workplace and marketplace integrity by respecting the human rights of everyone touched by our business, and by enforcing legal and financial compliance.

    Working for an industry leader that is rapidly growing. Exciting set of businesses across the Power Generation portfolio. GE is investing in this business and energy megatrends indicate that the Power Generation space is a great place to be in the near and longer term!

    Culture that is focused on employee empowerment, encouraging employees to ask "why not?, and one that values diversity.


    It's a big company so sometimes can be a challenge to navigate for someone who is new. All that said, the company is focused on simplification efforts and finding ways to become more agile and make decisions quicker.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Lots of progressive changes happening in the business with regards to employee empowerment and a laser like focus on customer intimacy.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GE Power & Water.


    Single one-on-one campus interview lasting roughly half an hour. Notified of offer two weeks later. Asked broad questions about team experiences, time management and organization skills. Interview process took place in October with one month to look over the offer. Location/function is to be determined between January-March when HR sends out a list of all the potential internship job openings. You rank your top 5 choices and send it back to HR and hopefully they put you into one of those.
