    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process was relatively casual and laid-back. There was only one in person interview and then a follow-up phone interview. Questions were standard, STAR interview format was used, and interviewers were professional.

    Standard interview process, online application submission through the school's career site and an in-person interview with 2 interviewers.

    Interview

    Met with one person. We went through a typical introduction including who they were and what their role in the company was. Then we reviewed my CV and discussed my experience. Then they ask questions (typical STAR interview), they wrote down notes on your responses, and then you could ask questions.
