    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    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

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Global Research (Niskayuna, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I am an international student. I was contacted by an HR person. He only asked me two questions: 1) Do you need sponsorship? 2) Are you from one of the following countries: Cuba, North Korea, Libya, Iran and a bunch of others. My answer to both questions was yes. He then said it is GE policy not to sponsor applicants from those countries and hence he cannot further process my application.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GE Global Research (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I worked at GE global research as a summer intern. The manager is satisfied with my work, and would like to hire me. She step down after the intern, but told me she will try very hard to help with my job application. Unfortunately, the new manager had different opinions. I applied online, internal reference, went there for on site interview. It took a day, people are very technical there. You will make a technical presentation, and talk to manager, group members and finally HR. Few behavior questions. They canceled the opening after long time waiting.
