Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Motors in January 2016.

Interview

Talked with the representatives at an on campus career fair, and was offered an on campus interview slot for the next day. It was a 2 on 1 interview that lasted half an hour. They asked mostly behavioral questions. Reps came off as kind of cold and uninterested from the start.

    Interview

    Met GM at career fair and they offered me an interview the next day. I interviewed and then kept in contact with recruiters for the next month. They gave me an offer in November through a phone call and email. Overall positive experience. I presume the full time hires require more levels of interviews.

    Interview

    the process started with a behavioral interview. The interviewer seemed interested but rushed at the same time like he had heard it all before. There were only three questions and it seemed like it didn't really get the entire picture.
