Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2016.

Interview

The first step was a short 30 minute phone screen. This was followed by an in-person interview. I was flown out, expenses paid by GE. First was a 5 minute presentation that included technical questions and about me. The rest of the morning was spent doing 30 minute behavioral interviews with 5 different people, followed by a short group exercise with the other candidates.

    For this program they mostly hire only interns anymore. They interview us during the summer before school starts of our last year. It usually changes up every year but this year, we had a 5 minute presentation on a project we have done. Then had two half hour interviews one for HR and a technical interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    It was an on-campus interview when I was a freshmen. I was threw off when the recruiter first asked me if I had any questions for her. As she was taking notes, I was thinking about any question that I could ask her. Eventually, the whole interview process was all about me asking her questions. Towards the end, I asked her if she had any question for me. She, then, asked me to introduce myself. It was not a pleasant interview experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE in April 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted last minute by the GE recruiter to interview for the job. I am a dual degree of ME and Business, this turned them off. The interviewer was definitely looking for technical driven people who see this as their calling. Unfortunately, that isn't me. Also, I wanted to work in Energy which wasn't been interviewed for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GE (Hyderabad (India)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Test, Technical Interview and HR Interview
    GE while shortlisting engineering talent at IIT's doesn't care much about the extra-curriculars. And we tend to have a lot of them on our resumes. Would suggest emphasizing the projects done and the impact of those in the resumes.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of emphasis on my coursework and Dual Degree Project. Most of the discussion revolved around the DDP and adjacent fields. Apart from the technical details the interviewer curious about the impact that the project would finally create. This, as I understand now, is a requirement for the profile we're hired into.
      Some guys had two rounds of technical interviews but in my case the interviewer after one round had made it very clear that I had got the job. I later understood that most of the people had two rounds and very few had a single round.   1 Answer

    Written Test:

    Technical Interview:
    1.be perfect with the things you write in the resume.
    2.they ask mostly about your projects (deciding if u utilize it well)
    3.its hard to reject you in HR round, if you do this very well.

    KeyNote: : just see their achievements in their website and go , when they ask you “do you have any questions” you can ask them how they achieved it. this atleast gives them the impression that u r interested in the company and did some ground work...This will give edge over others :)

    HR interview:
    1. they just test your communication skills, make most of it,portraying your self when they give a chance by asking you the conventional question "tell about yourself".
    2. they will tell some situations and ask you how will you react to such situations.
    3.your hobbies.
    4. what you do in tough situations.

    Note:if you have any internship experience, let them know. they prefer people with internship experience.
    if you have any internship experience they will ask some questions on that also. like they will ask which one will you join, your internship conversion offer or GE. justify your ans.
