    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at General Motors in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at General Motors in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Mainly behavorial questions. Nothing too difficult. Had two back to back interviews same day with two different managers. No technical questions but be sure to admit you don't know something instead of pretending like you do. It seemed very fast paced but it covered a broad range of interview questions. Mainly, "Name a time where a fellow teammate performed poorly." Or "What was the most challenging task you have ever completed?"
