    Law Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's website. An interview was set up with an Attorney at GE Aviation. After the initial expected interview questions, the interview become a little awkward. The interviewer would state facts about GE and then look up, I'm guessing to see what opinion I had? Other times it was just a statement about how things work on the job, again would just look up and stare. Each of the times I responded with a something along the lines of, I would fit in well there or that sounds great etc. The way the interviewer pushed a response, without a question, was rather awkward. Maybe that was the interviewer's style? Never experienced it before, and hope not to again.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Received interview invite be email. Had eight interviews the same day. They did a great job making me fell comfortable with the process. Most interviewers were interested in "can I work with this guy". Several were more technical based. No games, tricks, ect... Be prepared! Review the typical "tell me about" questions on sites like Monster.com. Complete your paper work prior to showing up, one guy didn't. This was one of the easier interviews I have had. Started about three weeks later. So far, I love it. Good luck everyone.
