    Entry Level Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ

    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.

    applied online and got a call in a week. There was a short call with recruiter and she scheduled a call with hiring manager in a weeks times.

Dev manager asked technical questions but related to my resume, nothing unexpected.
    Even though the interview went good but I never got a feedback or an offer. Recruiter was very positive but I don't know what happened later on.
