    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at GE (Melbourne) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position of collections officer online from Seek and was contacted the next day via phone call where I under went a phone interview where I was asked basic questions:

    .Why do you think you would be good at this job
    .what are you doing at the moment for work
    .what do I think the position involves
    . have I had to meet KPI's before
    ETC

    I was than told that he would pass my information to the HR manager and if I was successful I would be contacted for a face to face interview, I was contacted next day with date and time for interview which was only 4 days apart from phone interview, I was also send a candidate form that I needed to fill out and send back via email (was just basic questions, Name, Address, Phone number etc)

    The man who told me also told me I should look on the website and look at GE capital for the interview, so I went and printed of 7 pages of information and tired getting my head all around it for the interview and I wasn't asked once about GE capital, but hey at least I was prepared incase lol !!!

    The interview was held at the head quarters. Two men interviewed me and the setting of the interview room was very casual and relaxed which helped me relax heaps.

    To start the interview they asked me to tell them a little about myself with what I had been doing with previous jobs.

    Than they asked me what I think the job involves than went on to giving me some details on what the job will require.

    They than started the behavioural questions (only 5 of them) questions more or less consisted of asking when I have dealt with a un happy client, give an example of when I used time management to do tasks, what was something that I suggested to management that helped make something easier in workplace ETC all very easy to answer really.

    Than before I knew it, it was over only took 20 mins.

    Than they said I would hear back by the next week if I am successful !!

    I only went yesterday so my fingers are crossed !!!

    Good Luck Everyone !

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at GE (Sydney) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The whole process was standard for internships and graduate applications. They select most of their grads from the intern pool so this is the best way into the FMP or RMP programs. It started with online application, then moved on to phone interview, psychometric testing, then assessment centre. A C had group exercises and one one on one interview, and a couple of written tests from memory.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked which of the company values did I exhibit and asked me to provide a situation where I demonstrated it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, and I didn't request anything.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GE (Perth, Western Australia).

    Interview

    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!

    Interview Questions

    • 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
