    I have been working at GE Power full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible environment, surrounded by industry experts, and thoroughly involved in resolving challenges in the drinking and waste water treatment industry. This place keeps me challenged, and the limit of what I can learn is mostly determined by the time that I decide to put into it. Many avenues are wide open for me to apply my technical knowledge and keep learning. it is such a global company that you work with people everywhere, and if you wanted to, you could MOVE anywhere.
    The Oakville (Canada) office is a great site, were the community is great, people get really involved with volunteering and any internal events, and my relationship with co-workers is more like the ones with friends. Playing beack volleyball at lunch or going for a hike in the on-site trails is a great way of making the days more enjoyable and letting some steam out.

    Cons

    Sometimes the days can have long hours, and being such a large company, changes are not always easy to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the simplification process, and continue to facilitate and encourage people getting involved in volunteer activities. They really help the employees, the moral of the workers, the community, and it gives GE great positive press.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GE Power (Belfort (France)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Présentation de l'entreprise par la RH puis présentation préparée préalablement de chaque candidat sur son parcours (5 minutes) puis 3 entretiens de 30 minutes chacun (un avec RH, un avec responsable de programme Edison et un avec des ingénieurs).
    Chaque entretien se concentre sur des choses différentes :
    - avec RH : entretien "classique" RH
    - avec responsable Edison : entretien sur les motivations du candidat
    - avec ingénieurs : quelques questions technique
    Un exercice de groupe était prévu (survival case) mais nous n'avions pas le temps de le faire.

    Interview Questions

    • - Qu'est ce que pour vous un bon manager ? Qu'est ce que manager pour vous ? Où vous voyez vous dans 5 ans?
      - Quelles sont vos motivations ?
      - Comment fonctionne une turbine à gaz ? Quelle est la pression et température dans la chambre de combustion ? Quelle est la température en sortie ? Quelle est le rendement d'une turbine à gaz ?   Answer Question
