    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Transportation (Erie, PA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed lasted 4 hours. I talked to 4 different interviewers for an hour each. I talked to the head of the Edison program (a mechanical engineer), a systems engineer, the lead software engineer, and one of the project managers.

    The each interviews were pretty easy and they mostly told me information that I should know about the company and program I was joining (Edison program). I spent most of the time asking questions and trying to get better information about the company out of them. I was asked about some pretty simple technical questions that were based off of my resume.
