    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    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. Hiring manager was nice and the interview was based on STAR patter questions and few technical ones. Later on I got a call for Onsite / In person interview, It had 2 rounds, one with Hiring manager and other with Dev manager. Both had set of questions (STAR) pattern. 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.

On the interview day,had two back to back 30-45 minute behavioral interviews, tour of the site and got to drive about 8 different models of cars manufactured by GM. Also drove a Camaro on a race track/slalom which was exhilarating. Pretty easy process. They got back to me the next day with an offer.

    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.
