    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Talked to them at Career Fair. Had my first interview the following week and they did a very good job at making me feel comfortable. They had someone in the hallway before the interview actually started for me to talk to and ask any questions that I had. The interview itself was fairly easy, two parts that were both behavioral with 1 or 2 technical questions. It felt as if we were having a casual conversation.

    • Tell me about a time that you did something that was right but not popular.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors (Blacksburg, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    They ask to have you describe two experiences as an engineer (such as when you had to work with a tough coworker). Easy behavioral interview, be ready to conjure up experiences that can prove your mettle as an engineer. This was just a theme that the lead talent scout defined at a hang-out event before we started interviewing the day after. Just know that a small part has to do with the actual interviewer and how many interview he/she has done in a day. A long day of interviewing can wear an individual out.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you created became close to a coworker through a tough assignment.   1 Answer
