Interview

Met a recruiter at an internship/job fair for engineers put on by my university. I got an interview the next morning. The interview was with a different recruiter than the first. The one who conducted my interview was an engineer who worked full time for GE aviation.

After speaking with the hiring manager and several other employees I met with the HR person and she asked me several more non technical interview questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GE Aviation.

    Interview

    Contacted recruiter directly about the position on LinkedIn. Three phone interviews consisting of "tell me about yourself" and standard behavioral questions, followed by a day-long phone interview with different managers. The in-person interview was very conversational and involved open-ended questions about my background, where I wanted to go in my career, and what I thought my strengths/weaknesses were. Recommendations: Be yourself. Do some research about GE and be able to express why you want to work there.

    Interview

    I was interviewed at my school's career fair. So I went up and met with the recruiter and talked with him for about five to seven minutes about the normal things spoken about at the career fair. Then I was asked to slot a time for an interview the next day. The next day I showed up and had a great interview with the head of the co-op department and was offered the job two weeks later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Clearwater, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process is lengthy. From the the time I applied for the position, it took 3 weeks to get a phone call. From the time I had the phone interview it took 6 weeks to get the on site interview. The processing of setting up the interview is quite confusing as you end up getting emails from 2 or 3 different people. The person coordinating the interview (Monica) needs to work on her professionalism and diplomacy. The interview was easy, people were friendly, but then last step of the hiring process was horrible! Not much feedback and they do not make you feel excited about joining their team. In fact, they almost make you feel as they would be hiring you because they were asked to hire more engineers but don't really want you there! They need to appreciate it when they find good talent and respect the time of the applicant. The first impression was great but then it went down hill. The manager should have done a better job making the applicant comfortable and wanted by his organization.

    • Describe a time when you suggested a solution and it didn't work   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The manager should have done a better job making the applicant comfortable and wanted by his organization. It really came down to the manager's attitude. It seems like a decent place to work for but the deal breaker was the last step of the hiring process. Perhaps managers can receive training on how to find good talent, welcome it to the team and retain it. After all attracting and retaining good talent would make a difference in the future of GE Aviation.
