    Difficult Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE Oil & Gas in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position in July 2016, got a pre-screen questionnaire within 2-3 weeks. Then I got invited to do an in-person interview at their location. I had 3 interviews for 45 minutes. It was simple and pleasant enough. Very easy and laid back environment that I felt like it was a conversation and not an interview.

    I thought it went good. Not great, but good.

    Tried contacting the hiring manager for a follow-up but I never received a call back.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mostly scenario based. No behavioral. Also, it was more like clarification questions pertaining to my resume.   Answer Question

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE Oil & Gas (Houston, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a pre-screen questionnaire about 2 weeks after applying. Had a phone screen, just to find out they are really pursuing an internal candidate. The sad thing is this would be the 5th interview I had that was already a pre-canned candidate. Please do not waste candidates time if you have no intentions of bringing them into the organization. I was laid off from this organization in March 2016 so it's not like I am a total outsider.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GE Oil & Gas in July 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke to some employees I know at GE and was encouraged to apply for this position. So I filled out the profile and submitted my resume and cover letter through the GE Careers website. I was then contact by a recruiter to set up a phone call with a Finance Manager (the position I applied for does not report to the Finance Manager, but the hiring manager was on vacation...I never received any communication from the hiring manager).

    Interview Questions

    • About 90% of the 30 minute phone interview was centered around very generic questions i.e. "Would you report any fraudulent activity if you saw it?" "Do you believe in safety first?" etc etc   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at GE Oil & Gas (Houston, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Received email saying my CV was selected as main step. Received second email informing personal interview. Interviewed HR and Hiring Manager. The Hiring manager seemed to make the decision even before interviewing me. I am assuming an internal candidate was already identify and my interview was part of the needed steps in the process. Even with that I am grateful to have the chance.
