  1. Entry Level Information Technology Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (GM) (Atlanta, GA) in Oct 2021

    Interview

    Overall, my experience with the interview process was actually enjoyable and a good learning experience. The interviewers were not boring and they kept you on track and knew how to ask questions to get a good answer from you. They were all very nice and enjoyable to talk to. None of the recruiters I had were intimidating and all were very friendly!

    I submitted my application in early September 2021 and received an offer in mid October 2021. So, overall, the interview process took about a month. Please don't solely apply to GM as a for a job. You should be applying to at least a couple HUNDRED positions as well.

    I applied through GM's career site using HireVue.

    For the FIRST stage of the interview process, I had to record myself and answer the typical interview questions you would see on Google. They give you 2 chances to record your answer. You have enough time after the first recording to think about your answer and try again. After you completed your recordings, you take a little puzzle game. Basically, you match patterns and a couple of easy to hard addition/subtraction games.

    The SECOND stage of the interview process was the coding challenge. You are given 2 challenges to complete with about 45 mins for each challenge. The first coding challenge is extremely easy. If you're rusty on your coding, don't be tempted to look up the answers. Yes, there are answers to the coding challenge on Google but that's not the point. The point of the coding challenge is to see what YOUR thought process is like and how you went about doing it, not necessarily what the answer is. The second coding challenge is difficult.

    The THIRD stage of the interview process is the phone interview. You only get the phone interview if you did well in the first two stages. This is where you are asked about your background and experience and for them to get to know you as a person. Don't think of this part of the process as them finding what is right or wrong about you, but think of this phone call as a way to simply chat with someone. Talk normally!

    If the recruiter sees you're a good fit, then you will move on to the next interview process.

    For the FOURTH stage of the interview, you will talk with 2 people over a video conference using Microsoft Teams. You get to talk with 2 people for about an hour. Typically, the interview last 30 mins, but you SHOULD use the next 30 mins to ask questions you have about GM or your your role .

    This is where you should practice some interview questions too. People will get different questions on the interview so don't think that the questions you practiced will be asked. Personally, most of the questions I practiced for weren't asked. The questions I was asked were along the lines of "Tell me about yourself", "Talk about the time you were working in a team", "What would you do differently in that project if you had the chance", "What would you do if someone in that project was not performing well", "What is your thought process like", "What would you do if you had to speak up about something?" (This was part of one of GM's core values), "What would you do to convince someone of an alternate path to take".

    These weren't the questions asked verbatim, but rather what I vaguely remembered.

    The recruiters are very good at guiding you to an answer. If you're stumped on something, or you mention that you can't think of anything to fit that question, they will run through some examples they've heard and hopefully that will jog your memories about an example you can give.

    At the end of the interview, please ask questions. They WANT you to ask questions. If anything is "right" in the interview process, it is asking questions. Ask questions that GENUINELY interest you about the position, about GM, about anything.

    Lastly, if everything goes well, you should hear back with a phone call from someone telling you that you were selected for a position at GM. A summarized offer letter will be sent to you in an email the following week. So, I was called on Friday evening and received the summarized offer the next Friday evening.

    Then, you will get an official offer letter through Workday and from there, you can choose to accept or decline the offer.
