    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors (Houston, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    30 mins behavioural 30 mins technical. the recruiters were nice, and questions weren't that hard. i didn't get the offer because i didn't prepare well. Read some online behavioural questions and some basic technical question and algorithm. Nothing surprise, just prepare yourself like you should do.

    Entry Level Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Chandler, AZ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There were two in person interviews over the course of 2 weeks. The first focused on personality questions and had one technical question. The second had no technical questions but asked about scenarios I had encountered in the past.

    Overall it was a positive experience however I was disappointed in the second interview. The interviewer was supposed to come with notes from the first interviewer but did not. The second interview went well but there was one BIG issue. The interviewer told me he was submitting my name for a job (not that I would get an offer, but that my name would be in the pool). I then followed up with the first interviewer (he was the more knowledgeable of the two) and was informed that when they averaged my scores, I did not meet the minimum criteria. It was two weeks after my second interview that I received this news so it was upsetting to hear that I was never actually submitted for a job at all. I worry that my expectations could have been better handled if the second interviewer had reviewed the notes of the first interviewer.

    Once I wasn't offered a position I asked what I could do to make myself more attractive in the future and was given some great feedback.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on the website, and they emailed me after a week or two. They first scheduled me for a phone call with a recruiter to discuss my background, why I wanted to work for GM, and give me some very general information about what the position was.
    Then I had a skype interview with an engineer, who seemed to be confused at what the role actually was. Apparently HR didn't give him the job posting so he seemed really confused at what to ask me. he ended up just going over my resume and seeing if what I did before was relevant.
    After that, they wanted to schedule me for a on site, but I was out of the country at the time, and they didn't want to pay to fly me out. So I had another skype interview with two hiring managers who asked me STAR questions.
    After that, they told me they'd have an answer within 2 weeks, but this was right before the holidays so I got nothing. Emailed the recruiter after the holidays, he told me they were still deciding. I emailed them twice after that, and both emails were ignored. I thought they'd at least have the professional courtesy to tell me that I was rejected, instead of ignoring my emails.

    Production Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wentzville, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Wentzville, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and pleasant. The interviewers were normal folks and friendly. They took turns asking me STAR type questions while writing down my responses. I asked if they were the ones making the final hiring decision and they told me know. I find that odd since they are the ones that got to know me, not the HR people in Michigan.
