    Field Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Edmonton, AB
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at GE Capital in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview:
    The phone interview was really basic. Just asking about what sort of work I have done in the past. What are my salary expectations. Giving a brief description of what the job, salary plus package is. *company car included*
    In Person Interview:
    I met with the Audit manger, and one manager was on the conference call. They didnt ask alot of technical questions, most of them were situation based. Example "How did you react to a customer that wanted to break the policies and procedures that were in place"
    "How would describe your ideal day at work"
    "Are you okay with 75% traveling"
    The interviewers were really nice. They explained the job really well and also explained the salary package in detail. Encouraged to ask questions about the company and the job.
    2nd Interview with the Director of CDF and HR Manager:
    Again really nice people. Similar questions to the previous interview. More focused on the job description and where this job could lead to.

    Negotiation Details
    They offered my 44,000$/yr. I negotiated it to 46,000$/yr

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Montreal, QC
    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at GE Capital in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The job was in optimization of sales forces using metrics. I came too prepared and talked about optimization processes in too much detail. That lead to my downfall, I guess they don't like when you spit all the theory out. I was probably the most competent since I had done previous work with metrics but I somehow messed up the interview. Very standard questions.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE Capital in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying I was scheduled for an on campus interview. Once I got in the lady said that she is very sorry but the interviewer I was originally scheduled for was double booked. The questions were very standard behavioural questions. By the end of the interview I was told that there are a lot of sales positions opening at GE Capital. I guess they had already made up their mind before I even came for an interview. About 6 months after the interview I got an email saying I didin't get it. Overall the interview was very polite and friendly.

    Assistant Accounts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Mississauga, ON
    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON
    Application Details

    The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at GE Capital in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews, back to back. Very casual, experience-based. Very little to no behavioural-based questions. The interviewers seemed to have conversed with each other before coming into the room, and had basically already made up their minds before the interview even started. Granted I was nervous and stumbled through the first one a bit, but thought I had more than made up for it with the last two interviews. Not so helpful if the first interviewer already influenced everyone else.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at GE Capital in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the GE consultant to set up a time for a telephone interview. As scheduled the consultant called me Tuesday morning and mostly went through the interview process, the company and general stuff. She also told me the hiring manager was on vacation and will be back next week when I will be called for an On site interview. She even gave me the hiring managers name and discussed about the compensation. I did not receive any email from the manager the whole week. I emailed the consultant and asked her about the status. She was very quick with her response and told me will touch base with the manager. Next day I got an email saying-Hiring manager had interviewed few candidates before she went to vacation and has decided to go with one of them.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I knew GE would be a tough place to get in. So I wrote to the HR at GE without any expectation to get an interview. I told them in the letter that I would be a good fit but if they want to pass on a great candidate then it's at their own cost. "Go ahead and select other candidates" is what I told them. I got hired.

    I was contacted by a recruiter. The interview was quite easy, just resume questions and basic technical questions based on my skill set. They are seeking for someone who has both solid data analysis/programming skills and good academic background. So ivy kids are lucky! They moved very quickly.
