    Design Release Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call from HR the following day. Basic questions to determine eligibility, preferred salary, when I could start, etc. Was told my resume would be passed along and I would hear about an interview by the end of the week. Ended up getting a canned email saying they decided I wasn't the right fit.

    Interview

    My situation was unique because I work for a senior design team at my university for a competition sponsored by GM. Without even applying for a job I received an email when they visited my campus requesting an interview. I interviewed with one hiring manager for about 30 minutes to an hour. Three main questions were asked and they were all behavioral.

    Application

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

    Interview

    GM representatives came to my university and did a first round of interviews. This interview was about 30 minutes and was strictly behavioral. I got a call two weeks later saying that I had made it to the second round of interviews. They flew me to Detroit the following week and had an onsite interview. This interview lasted about an hour and was also all behavioral. Then, the two interviewers gave me a tour of the lab they worked in.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    I initially found out about the opportunity to work for GM during a university job fair. It was one of the easier interview processes that I've been a part of. It was just a lot of situational questions. I only had one interview then I heard back several weeks later. The company seems to be trying to greatly expand their IT department over the next few years.

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Applied online and it hardly took couple of business days to get a call from HR, I was asked the routine questions like if I was willing to relocate, why was I looking for a change, what I was earning at my current job e.t.c and finally what I was expecting...and they said what I requested was in the pa range and they arranged me with an telephonic interview.

    I get this call and before the interviewer gets technical he explains as to what he is looking for in the potential hire.

    In the technical round I was asked all sorts of questions starting from basic to all the way to the architect level..was not very sure as to why I was asked architect/Lead level questions for a "Senior Developer" position? I thought may be he was just trying to know me or something but it turned out the HR had submitted me to Lead position without even my knowledge.

    It would have been better on the HR part to submit for the position that I applied and this seems to me more intentional than accidental for reasons that I can suspect.
