    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (GM) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an invitation to perform a digital interview about a week later. The interview portion took about 20 minutes and then they had you play three games, not too hard. The next day I got an email to participate in a phone screening. After this I was told I would hear back in mid-September if I was chosen for a skype interview. I did not hear back until around October 7 that I had received a skype interview. I interviewed with one person, very nice lady. Received an offer exactly three weeks later.

    telles que :

    Communiquez vous de la même manière face à un opérateur et un directeur?

    R : Non.
    Face à un opérateur, je suis plus à l'écoute et fait preuve de plus de curiosité car connaître le coeur de métier est primordial. Je fais aussi attention dans l'utilisation d'un vocabulaire moins technique (en ce qui concerne mon métier) car je ne veux pas le mettre mal à l'aise ou croire que je le prends de haut.
    Face à un directeur, je suis directe est concise. J'ai bien consciente qu'il a une charge de travail assez lourde et que son temps est précieux. Je peux me permettre d'utiliser un vocabulaire plus technique après avoir vérifié son aise sur ce sujet.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (GM).

    Interview

    Had to do a virtual interview thing that involved recording video responses to questions. Then I got contacted by HR confirming my details. Said they would get my application in front of a hiring manager. Had to find out I was rejected on the online portal, never got a call back or anything. I applied to another position some time later and got to skip the video questions and testing for that part. Had two one-hour interviews (back to back) with different managers. Didn't ask technical stuff, just behavioral and stuff about interests and backgrounds. Overall seemed promising, but got an email letting me know I wasn't chosen for a position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Motors (GM).

    Interview

    applied online in September 2019, completed hirevue interview one day after submitting application (I received an automated email). Had a phone screen about a month later and they scheduled a skype interview in December which is the final step. They cancelled the skype interview one day before and said they did not have enough staff to complete an interview and told me they would not be proceeding. Contacted me again in February asking if I was still interested and I said yes, we scheduled a second Skype interview which was cancelled one hour before, after I already took a half day from work. Rescheduled a third skype interview and as I forwarded my Thank you email to the recruiter i was told two days after the interview that they decided to go with another candidate.

    TLDR: About 7 months of an interview process to get declined so quickly. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t frustrating.

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Motors (GM).

    Interview

    Hirevue digital interview with six behavioral questions (STAR) followed by three games (arithmetic, pattern recognition, and memory). It is definitely strange completing a one-way interview, I feel it would be much easier answering the questions in person. I was not invited to the next step.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at General Motors (GM) (Austin, TX (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I was first reached out to complete a HireVue interview. The virtual "interview" is handled asynchronously, meaning you record your answers after given a minute to prepare and are given two attempts to answer each STAR question.
    Afterwards, I was tasked to complete 3 games: Rapid fire simple algebra, pattern matching (think iq test style cubes), and a short term memorization game. The whole process was fun, but fairly lengthy for such a preliminary process.

    I was then reached out to for a phone screen that briefly discussed my goals, salary expectations, and a couple brief STAR questions. After that they informed me that I would be reached out to by the team pending on the completion of a online leetcode style technical interview. The problems were easy to medium difficulty if you are familiar with leetcodes difficulty system.

    I did not hear back for about a week until I was scheduled for a final skype interview. The conversation was STAR and non-technical but sometimes probed for further technical depth in terms of explaining projects I had participated in (i.e. technologies used and why)

    I did not hear back for another two weeks, but was later reached out for with an offer letter.

    The entire process itself was very positive, but there were communication gaps that left me questioning whether the process was still ongoing.
