    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was really simple and straight forward. I met with some representatives at a job fair on campus and was asked to come in for an on campus interview that same week. After about a week, I was asked to take an online personality assessment which consisted of lots of logical thinking questions. About a week after that, I was asked to fly out to Michigan for a final round interview on their campus. Had a networking dinner there one night and then 2 final interviews the next day. All interviews were non-technical and simple STAR questions. Everybody was very welcoming and they really put the hard sell on by showing you the area and giving you the opportunity to talk to tons of people.

    • The major questions were: Why do you want to work for GM?, Walk me through the three financial statements? and follow-up questions related to that. It was much more chilled out as compared to many consulting/finance companies.   1 Answer
