    Digitization Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rugby, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GE (Rugby, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview is with an HR administrative usually subcontracted, then the second interview will be with the hiring manager. It would be normally two rounds but can also be a third one. The interviews I have participated are relaxed and people only want to be sure that you would be capable to do the job. It is important to be prepared with examples of past achievement to justify the experience needed to the job. The first interview is normally over the phone, and the second interview is normally face to face or video conference in a GE site.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were about describing past experience to back up the skills to do the job -as described in the job description   1 Answer

    Legal Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GE.

    Interview

    Submitted online application through the dedicated careers website. The following week received an email inviting to complete online tests (behavioural). The tests were not complex, focused on the company's work culture. Although all the tests were completed on time, I received an email saying that the position has already been filled.

    Interview Questions

    • The process of testing included watching video scenarios of real-life imitating situations. The candidate is then asked to pick the best option on how to proceed. Sometimes it may be more tricky as there is no opportunity to provide an explanation for your prioritisation to defend the choice, or to ask questions to clarify the point that the scenario is trying to test. However, most questions are common sense.   Answer Question

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amersham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE (Amersham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Chaotic, though this is partly related to the way the agency handled the process. Since becoming an employee I have had to carry out interviews myself, there is no set interview format and the questions depend on the interviewer. Fit is hugely important so I tend to ask questions that would give me a glimpse of their personality and only one technical question.

    Interview Questions

    • What the reason why you would like to work for GE   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    GE does not offer the most competitive salaries but this is partly compensated by the benefits package and flexibility. Salary increases have been capped in the past few years so they are far from substantial even if you are a top performer
