    Very very easy interview...all behavioral questions. Search online for behavioral questions, know what you have in your resume, and practice. Most likely interviewer will be a major or senior engineer. Rule of thumb, do not BS ... they might ask for follow up question.

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE Transportation.

    Interview

    It was very smooth and easy-going. We talked more about the town than the actual position. They were very straight-forward about the position and answered all of my questions very professionally.

    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
