Very Difficult Interview
Credit Sales Manager TJX Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through another source - interviewed at GE Capital in July 2014.
Interview Details First Interview by phone with HR, standard and efficient, Second Interview by phone with Regional Sales Manger, in depth, friendly and professional, Third interview, Face to Face with Regional Sales Manager (and Client ) Flown from Florida to Boston on a 6am flight, not given adequate time to travel the 65 miles to the corporate office, ground transportation was not pre arranged and pre paid. Arrived to the interview late which was unavoidable. Interview did not go well. Was flown back to different airport than departure airport causing additional expense and time Found out I was no longer a candidate one week later by checking my status on the company website. Never received a response from the Regional Sales Manger to follow up E mail or E mail regarding reimbursement issues. Received reimbursement 3 weeks after expenses submitted

Finance Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at GE Capital.
Interview Details The Most Awful process ever!!!!! After apply to GE Capital for different positions - either the position would be Cancelled After the Phone Screen by either HR or the Hiring Manager or in a couple cases put on hold, I finally got thru the HR and Hiring Manager phone screen and Actually Received the Official Invitation to Interview. I Quickly (within minutes of the email) gave my Availability to Interview as requested for the Following Week...... and waited and waited and waited. Finally after a 5 DAY wait to get the interview scheduled - I sent an email to the Recruiter asking the status - and received no reply. After a couple days, I went to the GE HR website and saw that my status has change from Interview in Process/Planned back to Under Review. How does one go from an official invitation to interview backwards to Under Review and NO ONE had the decency to reach out
Interview Question – No questions as the process never got past the Request for Interview Availability and no one ever responded or provided an update. Answer Question
Financial Management Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GE Capital in July 2014.
Interview Details After a fifteen minutes phone interview (that was postponed several times due to lack of organisation in the company), got invited for an assessment centre. Mix of behavioural and technical accounting questions, not many surprises although the accounting questions are not easy. No business cases nor annoying group works. Sometimes it seemed like the interviewers were actually not listening. One month to receive a feedback and to learn that, after travelling quite a long distance, no refund of the travel expenses was given! The first excellent impression you get of the company once you step in is betrayed by the slowness and misorganisation that characterises all the processes.
Interview Question – The fact that the behavioural questions they were asking were very similar to each other but different answers were expected. Answer Question
Customer Service Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE Capital in May 2014.
Interview Details Positives: The application process is straightforward: submit resume at GE careers page and do an assessment. If you pass the assessment, you are invited to a phone interview. The phone interview was a review of my resume, a few questions, and a discussion of the position. I was invited to an on-site interview. I couldn't schedule this over the phone because all of the current time-slots for interviews were full. I was told to keep checking my email so I could schedule it later.
Red flag #1: I was told we had to arrive 15 minutes early in business casual and bring along all seven pages of the application I was about to fill out (signed), a print-out of a confirmation of my interview, and a picture ID. I was told that if I didn't fulfill every single thing perfectly or if I was even one minute late, I’d be turned away and would have to wait 6 months to reapply. Don't get me wrong-- job applicants should do all these things. But why does a company feel the need to make a rule explicitly stating it? Why all the micromanagement when you don’t even work there yet?
Red flag #2: when I went to schedule the on-site, the only options they gave me were either the next day (less than 12 hours’ notice) or the day after. There were no other options available. The instructions say that you are supposed to devote two hours to this interview, because it could take this long (not including the 15 minutes early arrival). I am still working at my current job and I have non-work responsibilities that are actually very important, yet I am expected to pretty much drop everything and devote a rather large chunk of time to an interview-- on virtually no notice? Every face-to-face interview I've ever had was schedule a week in advance (or at least 4-5 days), leaving me plenty of time to get prepared and to gather everything I needed. There is no reason that GE cannot do the same.
Red flag #3: I decided after all of this that GE wasn't the company for me. There is no option available for withdrawing your application at all, so I keep getting bombarded with emails (1-3 per day) to schedule my interview. This is super frustrating.
Interview Question – All questions were relatively standard. Google "Most Common Interview Questions" and those are the type of questions you'll be asked. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined the offer to move on to the next process because after giving it some thought, I decided the company wasn't for me.
Structured Risk/ Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE Capital in November 2013.
Interview Details I made a great contact at the beginning of the year. Asked me to interview last second and the interview was very structured but since I knew the individual, it was more conversational. I bypassed the second round and was supposed to go to the office for the third. Thankfully, GE was great and worked around my schedule to just go through two phone interviews.
Interview Question – They went in depth about your leadership experience. Don't just have surface level answers but be able to back them up Answer Question
FMP Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GE Capital.
Interview Details The hiring process was nothing special. The interviewers asked basic questions that you learn your freshman year of college. The key is to have genuine interest in GE and the position. GE Capital is a huge business and there are a lot of thing to learn from it. Although the interview process isn't flashy or exciting, the business itself is amazing and a great experience that made me want to come back.
Interview Question – There were no difficult or surprising questions. If you have read through any basic behavioral interview questions, you won't have any surprises. Answer Question
Collections Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at GE Capital in June 2014.
Interview Details By far the most drawn out interview and hiring process I've ever been put through. It took approximately three and a half months between completing my application to the time I finally received confirmation regarding the job, and after the company purposely wasted my time and money they didn't even have the decency of calling to inform me that they had chosen a different candidate for the position.
Interview Question – They asked many questions, none of which were overly difficult. Answer Question
