GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best technologies taking on the toughest challenges. Finding solutions in energy, health and home, transportation and finance. Building, powering, moving and curing the world. Not just imagining. Doing. GE works.
At GE, we are builders. It goes beyond businesses, brands and infrastructure. With four businesses and operations in over 160 countries, GE employees have an unparalleled foundation on which to build their careers, their abilities and their dreams. We offer our employees challenging, rewarding careers in dynamic businesses. Our people are the architects of the future. We sit in the front seat of history.
Chicago is home to GE Transportation's global headquarters located in the downtown area. Part of the commitment to Illinois includes GE Transportation's active participation in the Get Skills to Work initiative, a coalition aimed at closing the skills gap and specifically, to supporting veterans as they transition to careers in advanced manufacturing. A recently announced partnership will help the state’s 76,000-plus new veterans pursue and fill open advanced manufacturing jobs by providing training to gain skills certifications.
GE is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We offer a competitive salary, outstanding benefits and the professional advantages of an environment that supports our employees' development and recognizes their achievements. GE fosters an inclusive environment where employees have the opportunity to succeed and diversity is embraced as a competitive advantage in the marketplace. The passion that our people bring to their work extends to their private worlds, and GE encourages a healthy balance between the two. GE values education and is dedicated to providing the tools and training for our employees' professional development.
How we deliver results is as important as the results themselves. GE seeks to lead in workplace and marketplace integrity by respecting the human rights of everyone touched by our business, and by enforcing legal and financial compliance.
These commitments are detailed in our integrity policy, The Spirit & The Letter, which every employee supports with a signed pledge. They are further enabled by our ombudsperson process, which encourages any employee to report integrity concerns without fear of reprisal.
Naturally, the passion that our people bring to their work extends to their own private worlds, and GE is committed to enabling a healthy balance between the two. GE encourages our people to meet their work commitments while balancing their own life responsibilities.
To support this balance, flexible work arrangements are an integral part of the way we conduct business. The Company also offers many programs and resources to support employees including financial management, family counseling and more.
I have been working at GE Transportation full-time (More than 10 years)
GE Trans is filled with high energy people that have incredible passion for strong performance, continuous learning, and career advancement. The company is one of the smaller GE industrial business units, but tends to operate on a faster tempo with a much leaner workforce.
The learning curve is high and fast. Consistent performance with speed and quality is expected. Ability to manage high stress, perform under short deadlines, and prioritize work-life balance is critical to prevent burnout.
Advice to Management
Salary needs to be improved below the executive level. This is the majority workforce that makes GE deliver world-class products and services.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at GE Transportation.
The interviewer had a list of questions for me. All the questions are very behavioral based. The interviewer was very nice. No technical questions at all and the interview lasted about 45 minutes
