    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at General Motors (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Talked to them at Career Fair. Had my first interview the following week and they did a very good job at making me feel comfortable. They had someone in the hallway before the interview actually started for me to talk to and ask any questions that I had. The interview itself was fairly easy, two parts that were both behavioral with 1 or 2 technical questions. It felt as if we were having a casual conversation.
