    TRACK Rotational Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ypsilanti, MI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Ypsilanti, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through my university career fair event. I did a phone interview and then an on-campus interview. The in-person interview was an hour long. I had two interviewers, one for technical questions and another for behavioral. I would say it was very tough. If you passed that interview, you will move to the next round which is a case study.

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Detroit, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    All asked about C++ virtual, polymorphism. It looks like their programming skills are low based on their questions. They don't even ask about design pattern. It's probably because they're mainly electrical engineers.

    FInance Rotation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    More technical finance questions than investment banking interviews. No fit questions. They want robots. Interviewers were brusque and had a tenuous grasp on the English language. They talked a lot about hedging fx, and expect you to know this, not sure why since gm barely has a domestic reach. Ended up walking out of the interview, and thanked them for their time.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you hedge currency exposure.
      Decide how much debt and equity need.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Two 45 minute interviews with 2 groups of 2-3 people. Asking standardized questions like "Tell us about a time you had a tight deadline? How did you resolve it and what did you learn from it? It felt like psychological torture because each group asked me the identical questions and there were at least 7 questions like that in each interview

    Software Developer? Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roswell, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Roswell, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out a pre-application at a career, didnt think much of it. A week or so later I got an email telling me to show up at 7:45 the next morning for a "final interview". I guess they like you to be unprepared. They showed us the typical, "Look, dont you want to work for us?" presentation, then we had interviews with two people. The first guy I got was pretty unpleasant. I really just think he thought I was "weird" and didn't like me. Anyway, he asked a series of your typical bs interview questions, and they demand that you answer them in a rigid series of steps, and if a step didn't apply to your answer, I guess that was just seen as a failing on your part. He acted as if he couldn't comprehend my answers and wrote my answers down in a way that made me look bad, then refused to correct them. I felt like walking out of that interview, and I wish I had.
    The second guy I talked to was very nice and asked a couple of easy questions.
    That night, I was informed via email that I needed to apply to all the jobs I was interested in. Because applying after an interview makes perfect sense.
    Needless to say, within a week or two, I got a generic, "don't feel there's a strong match" email.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing that unexpected. Just imagine the worst questions from one of those books of interview questions, and an unsympathetic jerk sitting across from you.   1 Answer

    Industrial Engineer - Entry Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wentzville, MO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at General Motors (Wentzville, MO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The Entry Level Industrial Engineer position that I applied for was contracted out by an Engineering Temp Service. The best pro about this interview was how quick the entire process worked. I was approved for an interview on Friday, had the interview on Tuesday, and told that I would know by Wednesday if I could start the job next week. Everything else about the interview was incredibly tough. It was a panel interview with 4 engineering managers that had not glanced at my resume prior to our meeting. If they had, they probably wouldn't have agreed to interview me because I was clearly not the ideal candidate for the job. All of their questions were formed from the content on my resume. Since they had not had a chance to read my resume, most of their questions were taken out of context. For example, since I just graduated with my bachelors degree, all of my Industrial Engineering experience has been through Internships; however they were asking me for examples of my work that would be expected from an engineer with two to three years of experience. At the part of the interview that I was able to ask questions, every inquiry was answered with a pompous response. Altogether, my experience could have been better had my preparation been better.

    QA Tester Roswell, GA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roswell, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Roswell, GA).

    Interview

    Seemed to go smoothy with phone interview, face to face was terrible. Appears there is a "must have worked at HP or be indian" menatlity. If you do not fit into one of these backgrounds or ethnicity, you will get a rejection letter. Spoke to many people that have interviewed at this location, everyone had the same opinion.
    Most IT people do not fit under these behavioral type scenarios. Terrible interviewing methodology.

    Interview Questions

    • Absolutely nothing technical, all standard STAR behavioral interview questions. They cannot determine a persons technical abilities at all by asking the canned questions they asked   Answer Question
