Production Group Leader Interview

Anonymous Employee in Spring Hill, TN

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (Spring Hill, TN) in August 2015.

Interview

Applied on GM site. First contact was a 20 minute phone screen with a recruiter nearly 2 months later. Usual questions. Several weeks later invited on-site. Interviewed with two managers. They utilize a standard interview template with pre-written questions. STAR format (called SMART with GM). After the standardized questions, had a little informal Q&A. Not too difficult. 4 weeks later I was called with an offer. Time between initial application and offer was a little over 15 weeks. Seemed like an eternity.
