    1 hr Behavioral Interview. Got recruited at the career fair, and they set up my interview in less than a week, so that was a quick process. Getting an actual assignment took a little longer.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Motors (Warren, MI) in June 2017.

    Two one hour sessions with several people. After taking the day off. The job was given to an internal employee so there had no intention of hiring an "outsider". What a waste of time!

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I had a total of 4 interviews: an initial pre-screen phone interview, a technical interview, a behavioral interview, and a final interview with the engineering manager.

    Algorithm Design Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, MI
    No Offer
    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at General Motors (Warren, MI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Situation based interview, typical questions and followup on answers. First there is 30 min phone interview with hiring manager which is oriented around getting to know you better with respect to what you put on the resume. Then there is two hour onsite interview with two managers. Interview questions are relatively standard. Probably differ with position you are applying for.

    Tech Lead/Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1 HR round first (30 mins), One technical Screening for an hour, 2 hours HireVU with Manager, and Director.
    The overall interview process went well. But the HR messed up with an offer letter from the initial discussions. Hence I have rejected the offer.

    So, the moral is : My time is wasted due to not saying a good range of salary in the initial stage even though I mentioned the exact number lower-end what I am looking for. It is not just about money, it is about the overall experience. If HR told me the range in the first, then I would not consider the job interviews.
