    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GE Global Research.

    Interview

    Technical talk, technical interview, behavioral interview, HR interview, 1-over-1, manager
    Process was relatively straightforward. It was described to me earlier and stayed on course. Company paid for interview expenses. Technical and behavioral interviews were harder than the others, but that was expected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GE Global Research (Niskayuna, NY).

    Interview

    Two phone screens followed by an onsite interview. My interview panel asked a good number of technical questions, some of which I couldn't answer. This is to be expected given the nature of the job I interviewed for. It was the most difficult of the interviews I had at the time. If it was too easy it probably would have turned me away.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GE Global Research.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online but didn't hear anything for about two months. I then went through an initial phone screen with HR that was pretty basic. The next step was a technical phone/computer interview with the lab manager. I was warned before hand that this lab was very selective and had a very difficult technical screen, it did not disappoint.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to come up with a solution for a difficult programming problem. This was not your typical interview/programming problem that has a definitive solution, it was a somewhat realistic problem that did not have a single correct answer.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at GE Global Research (Niskayuna, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Easy set-up with HR. The hiring manager's and her boss were very unprofessional and it felt as if they were doing me a favor by "allowing" me to interview. Manager had trouble explaining the finance ERP and other systems . The hiring manager's boss was trying to gauge how "useful" I could be to the manager and refused to answer some of my questions. My own manager advised me to not take any offer as many previous FMPs gave negative feedback.
