    interviewed at General Motors (Oshawa, ON) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online through the company website took few months to get the interview call. Received a call from the HR rep and the time for interview along with the day was flexible. There was only one interview with two managers and all they asked were behavioural questions. They want to know more about you and what you can do rather than the technical aspect as you can learn that once you start work if you are dedicated. The interviewers were really friendly and laid back I didnt feel even a little nervous after the first few questions.

    Interview Questions

    • None. All were straight forward behavioural questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation as I didn't have that much experience.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at General Motors (Toronto, ON) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was pretty comfortable. Them seem to do everything by committee. It is a combination of HR and employees from the specific field you are applying. Told me the structure through which they wanted me to answer questions and only asked simple behavioural questions. Focused on questions at the end and had a long less formal conversation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at General Motors (Oshawa, ON) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Applied on linked in. Was contacted by email after about 4 months. It took several weeks to arrange an interview and several more to get hired. The original job was lost because management pulled the role and postponed hiring. The interview itself is a modified version of the Star model. They want to know what you learned from your individual experiences.

    Interview Questions

    • No technical questions to speak of. All behavioural, just look them up online   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate with contract employees. They assign a budget to your contract house and you negotiate with them. My contract house tells me that they get about 13% margin on me.
