Software Engineer Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GE in July 2014.

Interview

I applied online via the GE careers website and I was contact within a week of applying by a recruiter. The first interview was an informal phone screen done by the recruiter and it lasted for 30mins.

After that, the next week she scheduled a phone screen with the hiring manager and we talked and went technical. The things we discussed were what I used to work on in school, what I do for the open source community and how I approach learning a new technology. We even went to talk about how I would go about creating a web application for keeping track of employment hours using the spring framework. He wanted to find out how I think even and that was the concluding statements that he gave me.

Shortly after the second phone interview they scheduled an onsite interview for me the following week. They organize the flight, hotel and travel arrangements for me as well. The interview was good, there were a lot of technical interviews and I meet with 4 different developers. Overall it was a good experience, I enjoyed it.

    It is a lengthy process not only interviewing with many managers but for the process to complete - if you are selected to be the right candidate. However, management does it best to move the process and will keep you informed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at GE (The Woodlands, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They had a 3 part interview process. The first one with HR which is basic questions you will get everywhere. The technical interview consisted of mostly high level questions, not very specific. Also I will say it was centered around experiences more than random technical questions. The last is an on site interview confirming your fit with the company as well as a teaching session to determine your proficiency in conveying your technical knowledge to others.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a couple question which seemed very specific to their system.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GE in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process consists of several phone interviews screening for "fit" with the company coupled with technical questions. The technical questions were all very matter-of-fact, and designed to test your knowledge of major concepts in computer science. Thoughout the process, I was asked to demonstrate my understanding of code on the white-board by writing example code, interpreting code that was given me, and diagraming.
