    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Received an email for a phone screen the day after I applied. Another 24-48 hrs and I received an email that they would like to bring me in for an onsite interview. The coordination of the onsite interview was then handed off to a different individual and I waited a week to hear back from her on dates/times. Attended my in-person interview with 3 different individuals (one at a time), was walked out and told they would be in touch. I received a call the following week stating that the HR manager would like to do a phone interview with me (final step). Had the phone interview and heard back the following work day that they would like to extend an offer to me. I countered. Had to wait another week in order to hear anything back. They countered and I accepted. I had advised I would need to give a month's notice and they asked me to start in 1.5 weeks. I pushed back and was given 2.5 weeks. HR representative responsible for coordinating onsite interview and offer was terrible at responding and dropped the ball several times. a

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back within 2 weeks the first time. My interviewer was kind of intimidating. Asked me normal interview questions, but also asked basic accounting questions. I tried to answer some questions to the best of my ability but they were not the right answer that he wanted. Felt like a pop quiz rather than an interview. My second interview was through a video conference and was a lot easier. Was made an offer right after getting off the phone.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    There were total 4 interviews, one phone interview with recruiter, 2 onsite panel interviews, one panel interview with 2 managers and another with 2 managers and last Skype interview with another manager. All the interviewers were very polite and nice, best part was that they all were very responsive and vigilant in telling the next steps and kept me up to date on each and every step throughout the whole process.

    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    There were two interviewers, who both attended my college. The interview was strictly behavioral, which I was prepared for since I had done some background research on Glassdoor before the interview. Since I knew what questions they were going to ask me from looking on Glassdoor, none of them really threw me off and I was able to answer with ease. I received an offer about a week after my interview.
