    Outsourcing company managed the hiring process. There were 2 rounds.

    Second round I had to go to GE Power headquarter where the factory can be found also and I met my future manager. We had a detailed and professional very well built up conversation, about an one hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GE (Houston, TX) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Lengthy. Challenging. Insulting at times. Felt like everything I said was double questioned. Not sure why, but the hiring manager was very specific in what she wanted in a candidate. More concerned with hiring someone who fot the team versus individual capabilities.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    Applied through GE website, received inquiry phone call two weeks later, and then received an invitation to interview a week after the phone call. The interview was conducted over a three hour period with three separate interviews, it was a very positive experience overall.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview contained a lot of questions focused on how I handle bad situations, irritating co-workers, and personal failures. It is challenging to provide a positive answer when the questions give you ample opportunity to focus on negative things. The second interview focused on personal achievements, successes, and positive situations. It is easier to provide answers that end better in this setting. The last interview was with a representative from HR and covered a broad array of topics. Overall, one of the more challenging interviews I have been through, but well worth the time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer seemed fair and competitive, so there was no negotiation necessary on my part.
