    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GE (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through school career website and they got back to me saying I got a on campus interview very soon, like within two days. The interview was two parts, one behavior questions and one technical questions. I didn't get in the second round because my technical background and programming skills were not strong enough, and they pointed that out directly during the interview. Behavior questions were easy, but they had a high standard for technical skills.
