    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE Power in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewing for this role in Houston from another GE Power Greenville (my former role). They scheduled within a week, 5 separate phone interviews with 5 team members, manager included. Each interview was about 1 hr, very casual, mixed between technical and behavior questions. I could tell they were not used to interview candidates. Within a couple of weeks, manager gave me an offer. I tried to negotiate but was told company policies for laid-off employees (GE) was offer non-negotiable.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GE Power in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was set up after talking at my university career fair. I got a call the night of the career fair and set up an interview for the next day. It was a one-on-one interview with a recruiter that was working full time, in a manufacturing operations lead role. Not technical, wanted to know about team skills and projects I have individually had an impact on. Very professional. I got an offer within two weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Power (Detroit, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Completely unorthodox from most people. Went to a career fair, had a great conversation with one of the recruiters regarding turbines. I had a prior experience with one of their major competitors so that helped a ton. After the conversation he offered me the job right on the spot, no formal interview required.
