Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors.

Interview

Standard interview process, online application submission through the school's career site and an in-person interview with 2 interviewers. The in-person interview itself took a little less than an hour and was asked the standard interview questions for students, only behavioral questions. They were very attentive and gave feedback on my replies as well.

    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.
