    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at GE (Cleveland, OH (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    This interview was behavioral and was very helpful to gauge what GE was looking for in a candidate. The interviewer was kind and attentive and guided the interview well. During our conversation we talked not only about me, but about what the interviewer saw in the company and opportunities it created.

    Interview

    I spoke with recruiters at a career fair. After speaking with the recruiters I was offered an interview later that day. I interviewed with a current employee. The interview was pretty basic. A short while later that day I was called and given an offer. After accepting, I was able to choose the location that I wanted to work at based off of all of the GE Transportation sites. Housing was provided and secured by HR.

    Interview

    The interview was very well organized and proficient. I had a phone interview in which I had to describe how my previous work experience can contribute to the department I'm interested in. I need to know a little bit more info on the job description to compare it to my current experience. The HM was patient and gave me a thorough description of the job and I was able to give him a how I can contribute to the team. No tough questions related to the technical aspect of the job

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GE (Johannesburg (South Africa)).

    Interview

    I was contacted and asked to first complete a questionnaire - mostly behavioural.
    A week after I had a telephonic interview with that manager - behavioural
    A week after that I had a one on one interview still with the same manager - technical/ behavioural
    2 weeks after that I had a Skype interview with the manager from Chicago - technical/ behavioural
    1 week after that interview I had another telephonic interview with the HR from the UK - behavioural

    It was almost 2 months before I received an offer from GE, however its still contingent to my fingerprint testing being clear.

    You also have to send in all documents, certificates, references and a thorough background check is done.

    The interviews are simple but you must have many examples and situations to discuss. The people were exceptionally friendly as well.

    The salary offered was good but I requested a review/ negotiation for the possibility of a better package.

    No one ever asked me about my desired salary or knew my current salary - only after the HR interview was I given a form to fill to stipulate my desired salary.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions started with "tell me about a time when"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I am currently negotiating. received the offer but sent an email through to ask if the offer could be reviewed as it was very close to current. They said it should be another 2 weeks before I know.

    Pleasant and easy going conversations, three different groups of two interviewed at three different times, HR and hiring manager and a few of their peers, they got back to me quick in terms of the response, I just had many other offers to choose from at the time.
