    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruitment by General Motors. I applied through my college career website and I got a call for my face to face interview. There were 2 rounds of interview. Both rounds were behavioral. Interviewers were friendly. After the interview, I was asked to wait for HR response about the result. After a week, I got an email to apply for the position online and I am now waiting for HR reply. I will update once I get a reply from them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Motors (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled for 30 minutes but ran about 45 minutes. I interviewed with 2 interviewers at the PRSSA national conference- one male, one female. They tried to make the interview conversational. The interviewers were nice- they took notes the whole time. Interview questions were behavioral and in STAR format. About a month/month and a half later I had another interview, this one quick, with three others. It lasted about 15 minutes. I had to call in to a conference call and their was a lag on the line which made it very awkward and uncomfortable. They asked me why I wanted to work their again and what I could contribute to the company. Another month later I received an email that I didn't get the internship.

The interview was conducted on campus by a recruiter who had gone through the same process 3 years ago so that was nice. A week later I got scheduled for my second interview which I am yet to attend.
