    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    Mine was a strictly behavioral interview on campus. I met with two software engineers or developers and went through a range of questions which I did not find difficult. You simply give examples of how you handle various situations. It is important to explain the process that you used in going about handling various situations. All in all, it was not too hard, and if you get to know the people sitting across from you, it all goes smoothly.

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    I was offered an On Campus interview which was mostly behavioral. The questions mostly tailored to different situations I had been in whether in school or the work place and how I handled the situations. The recruiter got in touch with me soon after my interview with more information about the process going forward. Overall, I had a very positive experience interviewing and working with them.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    You will get a call from someone in the Talent Acquisition department first. Some basic questions regarding your experience and eligibility will be asked. If they determine you're a good candidate, they will arrange an actual onsite interview. The interview questions are standard questions from a GM interview book. Not technically oriented. They do look into your experience and skills/knowledge but don't make you write code on white board or things like that.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really too difficult or unexpected. For example, they would ask "give me an example in your job when you felt you're in very difficult situation and why".   Answer Question

    ETL Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    When GM was first building up their IT in 2012, they were hiring fast and furiously. You would first receive a phone interview, and then a 1x1 interview with 3 different managers (none of which that might actually be the manager you end up with). GM requires the use of the Lominger Interview process, which does not really get into technical questions that are specific to the job. Additionally, it was not uncommon for GM to "reassign" you to another position or team than what was originally advertised; consequently, many new hires (specifically, college hires) would end up in an area that they might not have any experience or interest in.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you <insert some undesirable situation, like making a bad decision on the job>, how you handled it, what you learned from it and how you'd handle a similar situation in the future.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    They had two people interview me, it lasted around 2 hours. I believe it was 45 minutes for each individual and the last minutes left to ask questions. They had packets to with a ton of questions to ask me about, so that was the reason the interview took so long.

    Interview Questions
    • It was most behavioral questions that focused on teamwork. They are looking for people that can work in a team. Most difficult question: "How did you deal with someone that was not doing their work? How did you handle the situation? What would you change?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about 2 weeks from initial phone screening to on-site interview. Interview was behavioral focused (situations/actions/lessons learned) with technical questions thrown in at the end. Overall the interview process was quite easy.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't the questions so much, but the fact that for each area or behavior, there was a series of 3 questions that you could choose to answer. This made it difficult to keep the conversation flow as by the time you heard the third question; you'd then forgotten what the first option was.   Answer Question
