    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whitby, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GE (Whitby, ON (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Video interview. Less than a minute to see the question then the camera started recording. You don't see anything but yourself being recorded. Rather nerve wracking. No chance of asking any questions because you were not being watched at the time.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GE (San Ramon, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and 6 weeks later received email from recruiter to setup a phone screen.
    After speaking with recruiter for 30 minutes, a second phone screen was setup for technical.
    Passed technical and was invited to their San Ramon campus for afternoon interviews with 8.
    Arrived on time to their office and greeted by recruiter who was polite throughout day.

    After that things went downhill:
    1) Wasted 30 minutes trying to find an interview room. We found a narrow passageway
    what could have been a janitorial storage room.
    2) The dry erase markers were near empty and the white board was filthy from past interviews.
    3) The workers walking past looked stressed out.
    4) Spoke with only 1 Caucasian engineer, everyone else was foreign born and likely H1B visas.
    5) Managers and Directors were all rude and condescending. What did I do wrong?
    6) Their tech guy started asking me questions on a project I did only once.
    7) Their tech guy never asked me about my 10 years of platform experience.
    8) Insinuated I did not know how to code and I had to correct employee in my defense.

    Overall, a big waste of a great Sunny day better spent interviewing a common sense employer.
    What amazes me is I know more about GE business than interviewers who only know how to talk.
