Graduate Electrical Engineer EGP Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Perth, Western Australia

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details Had a chat with the GE recruitment consultant. always reschedule the call. Never every say yes i am free right now. Most common questions are "tell me about yourself?" "why are you interested in this stream?" "Work Exp etc.". Please be advised that when he/she asks you towards the end if you have any questions for him/her. always have a question for him her. never leave the phone interview without asking a question. he/she expects you to be exceptional. dont give them a reason for rejecting by being ordinary. And do not for a second be casual in the interview. I received the offer because of almost 2 yr exp but i was not one of his top choices. thank god he was friendly and honest enough to tell me that!

Information Technology Leadership Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details Standard phone screen, SHL testing and then an assessment centre focused on evaluating presentation and teamwork skills. Successful candidates then have an interview with a HR Business Partner and the ITLP Program Manager. Finally, if successful, you will be invited to a more informal interview with the Program Manager and the CTO, where they pitch to you why you should join GE and you can ask questions.

Interview Question – Too long ago to remember! The questions were very behavioural and the more difficult ones were around leadership experience and impact. As always, research the company. They are very proud at GE and they respond well to you knowing and respecting the brand.   Answer Question

ITLP - Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE in October 2013.

Interview Details I had two phone interviews with previous ITLPs. We discussed things like my technology experience, why I was drawn to the job, etc. It was not a "tricky" interview -- very much just a conversation.

Interview Question – "When have you used technology to make something more efficient?" That's one of the main goals of ITLP but it was kind of a curveball for me.   Answer Question

Operator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Midland, TX (US)

The process took 4 months - interviewed at GE.

Interview Details Hiring process was done mostly over the phone initially since I was living in Dallas and interviewing for the position in west Texas. I had to apply online. From initial contact to hire date was over 4 months. I had to fill out the same online application 3 separate times which was frustrating.

Negotiation Details – I was offered the standard hourly rate and informed about how bonuses and raises were earned.

Edison Engineering Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at GE.

Interview Details It was an on-campus interview when I was a freshmen. I was threw off when the recruiter first asked me if I had any questions for her. As she was taking notes, I was thinking about any question that I could ask her. Eventually, the whole interview process was all about me asking her questions. Towards the end, I asked her if she had any question for me. She, then, asked me to introduce myself. It was not a pleasant interview experience.

Interview Question – Nearly no questions from the recruiter.   Answer Question
