Field Service Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2015.

Interview

GE's HR personnel seemed very nice, but the hiring managers seem very picky, even if you have experience in a similar Field Service role. The interview seemed very short and the interviewer seemed disinterested after finding out I didn't have a significant amount of experience using certain specialized testing equipment. Be prepared to be answer in-depth questions from the very beginning of the interview. It appears the applicant needs to have most of what GE is looking for before deciding to apply or you may just be wasting your time going through the process. You may also have to wait a while before actually interviewing with the hiring manager(s).

    Interview

    I was first interviewed on campus when I was in undergrad. I then was flown to Chicago where I interviewed all day with about six managerial types in this part of the business. All of the interviews were behavioral and were aimed at determining if I was a good fit. They asked a lot of questions about what I did in my free time.
