    Executive Sales Leadership Role Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GE Transportation (Fort Worth, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL! I was RA'ed by my previous employer, and over the last few months, I have interviewed many times with a lot of big name firms, and their processes were just unbelievably bad. By stark contrast, GE was a complete 180 degree change from what I had experienced elsewhere. People were very professional, courteous, and did what they said they were going to do when they committed it. From the initial discussion with the recruiter, to the hiring manager, to all the other business leaders that I met with. Even the division head who just wanted to introduce himself over coffee (not an interview per se') which ended up turning into a great discussion and lasted over 90 minutes the Friday morning before Christmas. In total, I believe I met or spoke with 7 or 8 folks overall. When I was presented with another (competitive) offer, these folks came together and did what was needed for me to turn down the other position, as they really wanted me to join their team. So, over the holidays, these folks spent their personal time to connect with me and send over a personal note summarizing the role, benefits, and essentially committing to hire me for the role right after the new year. Because of how well they treated me, I went ahead and turned the other role down. As they had predicted, the offer came though late Tuesday afternoon the 3rd of January. Could not be more pleased. In a distinct contrast to my former employer, they are investing now for future growth, whereas my prior firm was cutting costs, doing massive lay-off's, and generally trying to save their way to greatness - which simply does not work long-term. Both firms are well over 100 years old each, but GE is just way more effective in managing their business with a long-term perspective. If there is one thing I can do, it is to say thank you to all the professionals at GET that I spoke to during the process... Thank you for your kindness, courtesy & general professionalism. It truly sets GET apart from all the others out there.

    Interview Questions

    • This is a generally paraphrased question that most of the folks I had interviewed with asked in one form or fashion: "Tell us about your background/career, and how would you leverage your skills/knowledge/background/etc., to generate more Digital/software/consulting/application development business with this customer."   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE Transportation.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call after 2 weeks. Had initial phone screening and then the interview. I think interview questions vary from person to person based on their resume. Expect questions about your past experience and a couple of behavioral ones based on the position you are applying for.

    Interview

    Interview with HR over the phone

    In-Person (same day interviews)
    Interview with HR in person

    Interview with VP, video conference
    Interview with second HR guy
    Interview with analytics PM

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1) Call with HR representative - More of a "feeler" interivewer where you learn more about the company and also you talk about your work experience as it relates to the role.

    2) Go in person for an all day interview where you:

    a) Meet with the HR representative

    b) Interview with a data scientist where you code in R using R Studio. This is very simple, you analyze some data and you make a binary prediction. You can do some EDA and try to get some results in 40 minutes (build a logistic regression model). I was only able to get the EDA done given the time I had

    c) Interview with two other data scientist (individually), one hour each. Here you'll talk about yoru work experience related to model building and answer any stats questions thrown your way... from simople stuff like "What is a p-value?" to something like "What is the difference between PCA and Factor Analysis? Explain how the random forest algorithm for classification works, etc."

    d) Interview with the VP, one hour. Talk about your past experience and the VP will tell you more about the business. I was also asked, "What is the difference between ML and classical methods?"

    e) I had an interview with a different HR representative - over the phone as the HR rep works remotely. This was a one hour meeting. More about me and why applied for the job. This interview is more about culture fit

    f) Final interview with the analytics PM. The PM pretty much spoke about recently completed projects and those in the pipeline

    Conclusion:
    It was determined that the position was no longer needed, thus it was canceled.
