    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    Worked with recruiter and with the manager of the team I was interviewing for. I have a very niche skills set, so it was fairly easy to get the job. First manager was really bad, got moved within the organization to a better leader.

    Negotiation

    Had to really work hard to get the salary I wanted. Went back and forth about 5 times.

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview

    Excellent work culture. Hiring is done through a day long interview with multiple leaders and a technical presentation to the relevant team. Interview is well thought out, carried out with certain amount of respect and dignity. The interview s relate to your ability and preparedness to carry to certain tasks and certainly not to check your bookish knowledge. Quite friendly atmosphere. Lots of background pre-interview collection of data is done.
