    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Simple questions on Java programming language, Databases, root cause analysis etc.
    Asked aviation specific questions, took a SWAG and sounds like i may have nailed it. The interviewers did not seem to have in depth software expertise.

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Atlanta, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    As others have said, GE Aviation uses predominantly a behavioral interview. The questions focus on challenges you have experienced and how to overcome them. I made the mistake of saying something about how I overdo most things, and then couldn't back it up. This was my first interview and my prep was weak.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview was mostly behavioral questions. They asked about 6 behavioral questions after having a brief conversation with the interviewer about his day to day life. Was a fairly laid back interview and the behavioral questions were standard. Make sure to have good questions because there was about 10 minutes at the end of the interview for questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Very pain free. Simple behavioral questions with a very nice interviewer. They already had my resume so none of the questions pertained to my skills and experiences directly. The interviewers emphasized having specific, detailed examples of how you responded to certain situations, so definitely have an idea of past experiences that you can reference.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation that you've never been in before. How did you deal with it?   Answer Question
