    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    Applied online and the recruiter followed up with a brief phone interview. After that I took a personality and intelligence test online (very similar to the ACT). After that I was scheduled for an in-person interview. In-person interview consisted of two 1.5 hour interviews -- all behavioral questions. After the interviews I completed a case study. It took about 5 weeks for them to follow up with an offer, so be patient.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Motors (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed with two different people. Started off amazing I was really vibing with the first person. But her manager came in next, he already had his mind made up about me before I spoke. Several times he would cut me off as soon as i began awnser his questions, then proceeded to respond to an email on his phone while I was trying to talk about my education, was completely disrespectful and biased. Wouldn't take the job even if offered. Not sure what interviewing tactic he was trying to potray but he needs to reevaluate his professional behavior immediately.

    District Manager Aftersales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (Milwaukee, WI) in April 2018.

    Interview

    My final interview was a webcam interwith with two managers, one for Aftersales and one for Sales. Very situational based. They were very personable and friendly, but to the point. I would recommend having real examples ready to explain. Practice this with a friend before the interview, it can be easy to get tripped up if you're not prepared. Use the STAR approach and you should be fine, but make sure you don't ramble on.

    The process in total took 8 weeks from the day I applied until I received a final offer. My first contact from GM was a phone screen two weeks after I applied, followed by an online personality test. I received an email to schedule a webcam interview roughly two weeks after that. Interview took place 4 days after receiving aforementioned email. Another two weeks passed and I received a call with a job offer. Job offer was contingent upon successfully completely a background/driving record check, which I found out I did a week after the initial offer. Everything happened in two week increments for the most part. Be patient with the process. It may be shorter for internal hires, I'm not sure. I was hired externally and had not previously worked for GM.

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews with 2 people - 1 hour each. The process was formal (they had specific tasks), but was quite comfortable. The relaxed nature really helped keep the mind clear and open to avoid freezing up and avoiding BSOD of the brain. Very professional and as expected!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors in March 2018.

    Interview

    Primarily STAR based behavioral questions with one technical question. They are more interested in your ability to self analyze and grow from challenges than in your technical experience, though the experience is important too. Start questioning yourself and why you believe what you do. The better you know yourself the better you will be able to answer the questions.
