    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Able to work independently. Hands on in nearly all decisions of facility. Flat organization = fair to all (no seniority preference). Able to learn as much as you want about any area of the business. LOTS of room for growth in this position OR to any other position within GE. LOTS of opportunity to be trained in many facets of the industry. FANTASTIC benefits (best I've seen outside the military) such as amazing health, vision, and dental insurance, tuition reimbursement to go back to school, 401K match up to 4% PLUS an additional 3% given by GE, 2 weeks paid vacation per year, 1 month paid sick time per year, approx. 13 paid holidays per year, 1 week paid personal business time per year, MANY other ancillary benefits such as discounts on endless products from hotels to ipads, help with daycare costs, and much more. Full flexible schedule. Team environment. Plenty of overtime. Great pay. Very accessible advancement.

    Cons

    None. There really are no downsides.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The probationary period is completely normal compared to any other company.

    Law Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's website. An interview was set up with an Attorney at GE Aviation. After the initial expected interview questions, the interview become a little awkward. The interviewer would state facts about GE and then look up, I'm guessing to see what opinion I had? Other times it was just a statement about how things work on the job, again would just look up and stare. Each of the times I responded with a something along the lines of, I would fit in well there or that sounds great etc. The way the interviewer pushed a response, without a question, was rather awkward. Maybe that was the interviewer's style? Never experienced it before, and hope not to again.
