    Interview

    only asked a few questions. I asked him questions and the answers were short and sweet. interview was really short. person didn't seem interested in being there at all and was rushed. I was very disappointed, I expected more from a company like GE. Oh well. I didn't get the second interview unfortunately.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Potsdam, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    An HR manager and an engineering manager interviewed me at my campus during Fall career fair. Relatively simple interview. A few generic questions were asked about my skills set, they offered an opportunity during the interview for me to ask questions (so come prepared). Since my background is Applied Math & statistics, I've only taken a handful of engineering courses; that being said, the technical questions in this interview were a minimum, but directed more toward how my degree could cater to engineering roles.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Louisville, KY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had on-site interview at their Louisville office. There were 6 interviews (5 technical, 1 HR). All of them 1:1. People were all very nice and knowledgeable about their product and process.
    As far as interview questions, everyone asked more less the same behavioral questions. I should have prepared for these predictable questions.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Niskayuna, NY) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Lab manager sent me an email after submitting resume through GE website for about 2 weeks. He asked to describe the research work on my resume. One week later I got a rejection letter. I believe the reason is that he is looking for a more experienced person even though the job is for entry level.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    I applied for the mechanical engineering internship, but soon after I received an email from the recruitment office saying that my skillset best aligned with the systems engineering internship. I agreed to apply for that position instead. I passed the first screening and then I did the judgmental test. I was successful so they told me that the next step was a video interview...but i never got to do it because they found a candidate for that position the very next day.
