Edison Engineering Development Program Interview

Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Grand Rapids, MI) in November 2017.

Interview

Being in the area, I was brought in for an initial interview rather than having a phone interview. The overall process was relatively quick for such a selective program. The interview process consists of an initial interview whether that be on the phone or in person, and then an intensive second interview that has both individual and group aspects. In the second interview you have to give a presentation about yourself. That is followed by several rounds of back to back 30 minute interviews that focus primarily on behavioral questions. Finally you end with a group exercise that is unlike most interviews I have experienced. Though intimidating I found all of the interviewers to be very kind, and the overall experience was very positive whether you were to make it or not. They flew in people from all over the country for interview.

Interview Questions

  • Describe a time when you had to make a decision quickly, and how you handled that?   Answer Question

    The interview process take one month after applied online, and during the interview you have to prepare presentation about you, and another four interviews are waiting after that. They are having a lot people to interview for this position, and most the candidates are interning with them. The whole interview process is almost 6 -7 hours. It was good experience overall.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring process was exhausting. 60 minute phone interview. Then flown to Cincinnati Ohio where I spent a day with my competitors for the position. Despite having significantly more experience than other applicants I did not receive an offer. Although the company stresses "diversity" all of my interviewers were white, and I found out later that from my entire interview group only white candidates were hired. Disgusted and will not be pursuing a career with GE again.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    A 5-minute presentation about myself and a technical project I've worked on and 5 half-hour one-on-one interviews. Almost entirely behavioral questions, very little technical discussion. I interviewed with 4 engineers and only one HR rep. 5-10 minutes of each interview was spent discussing what they did and how they liked the job - I learned a lot about GE Aviation from this.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with the Manager of the section hiring Software EEDPs for GE Aviation where we mostly talked about Cincinnati but also my co-op experiences in school. Because my resume had been mixed up, I had little notice before I found out I was to attend an on-site interview in Grand Rapids, MI where I gave a very strict 5 minute presentation and rotated between 5 interviewers. All interview questions were behavioral. I believe 4 others were interviewing at the same time, with another batch that afternoon and then two batches the next day. After the interviews, our interview group had a set amount of time to build a lego model with the challenge that only one person could leave the room to see the completed model at a time. We then had a box long and presentation.

    I heard back a within two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Non-negotiable for EEDP.
