    Business Development Finance Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GE Capital (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Very basic discussion - however this was from an internal candidate standpoint. The discussion was around competencies, experience, etc. No trick questions or standard interview challenges. I presume the process would be different for someone applying externally - however there is a big disconnect between the compensation offered to internal hires, and what external hires with a similar expertise would be looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • Put yourself in a situation where you are not able to agree with someone - what do you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very basic - it was a take it or leave it offer. I took it - not sure if I could have done any better.
