    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Milford, MI).

    Interview

    Phone interview screening followed by on-site interview (2 hours with two separate managers). Each hour was divided to: introduction, behavioral questions (4), technical questions (5), and the extra time was to answer my questions (15 minutes). The entire process took 2-3 weeks. It was the best interview / process I ever had.

    They met my initial request, so there was no negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Warren, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very professional. Received a call a week after applying online. First scheduled telephone interview, then a week after the telephone interview, there was a in person interview. Interviewers made the process very comfortable for you. May take some time to hear back for an offer, but be patient, there are a lot of good things happening at GM and the process of bringing in high quality talent takes time.
