    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (Warren, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met with a recruiter at my university career fair, who was interested in an advanced vehicle technology competition I was part of at school. I had a 1 hour interview with two software engineers on-campus, who asked me questions on my past internship and project experience (all from my resume). They informed me that ADAS/Active Safety would be a good fit for my skillset, but they were only hiring powertrain people (electrical engineers) at that time. I was told that my resume would be passed on to the autonomous vehicles team for further review.

    I also had to complete a simple math and reading comprehension quiz after the on-campus interview.

    I didn't hear from GM for about two months after that, until I got a call from a hiring manager asking if I would be able to fly out to the engineering final round interviews the following week. They flew me out to the Tech Center in Warren, MI, for two days of final interviews. The first day was just a networking session; the second was for interviews and tours of the facility. The final round interviews were one-on-one, hour-long interviews that were 100% behavioral.

    Overall, it was an easy interview process with some really nice people.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my project experience with ADAS topics, computer vision, and machine learning. Final round interviews were all "tell us about a time when..." questions.   Answer Question

    Had two interviews that were pretty straightforward. They asked a little about me and my education, my preferences, and a few technical questions. At the end they gave me some time to ask them a few questions too. The interviews were on separate days and each one only lasted about a half hour.

    • They gave me a paper with a bunch of details on it and asked me how I would communicate what needed to be done to a group of software developers.   Answer Question

    Interview

    College recruitment. I scheduled my first interview during the career fair in Tempe Arizona which ended up being a week later. It was an hour long interview which for the most part was behavioral questions just to see how you would fit into the company. There there was also one somewhat technical question towards the end. 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.
