    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors in March 2017.

    Interview

    Don't waste your time doing their online coding challenge. I completed the online coding challenge and was invited for an interview. However, it was with a recruiter who had no technical knowledge whatsoever. Dumbest interview ever. Asked what experiences I had with certain technologies and was rejected before I even got to an in-person interview. I think passing the online coding challenge proves I am proficient enough and deserve at least a technical interview.

    Algorithm Design Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, MI

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Milford, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Entire interview consisted of being grilled with STARLA questions read from a list for an hour. (Yes, STARLA, not just STAR, so be prepared to come up with TWO stories for every question.) Not conversational at all; interviewers seemed disinterested and only asked questions in order to fill in the blanks on their form. Skills were never discussed in depth. Just an awkward and uncomfortable experience overall. Introverts and those who aren't so good at telling stories need not apply.
