    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    written test followed by some 3 rounds of interview(min 2, max 3)
    written test had questions based on your core subject(mechanical / electrical& electronics) + logical resaoning/ analytical Q's. they also gave a blank sheet of paper and asked to write teh technicals achievements if any or good projects that you have done.
    shortlisted students were called for an interview,
    1st round purely technical: they ask you which subject are you good at & shower questions on you about that subject and also try to confuse you by asking whether your answers are right or wrong.
    2nd interview was technical again, similar to 1st
    there was a round elimination.
    i wasn't selected for HR
    results were announced as soon as HR round of everybody's was done!

    Senior ETL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    The process was a joke and I don't know how this company finds good talent.

    I applied online. A few days later a member of the Talent Acquisition team contacted me for a phone interview. I replied with my availability and didn't hear back for over a week. I followed up with them and heard back the next day to setup the phone interview. They also had me answer 5 questions via email and send back to them before the interview.

    The day of the phone interview the recruiter sent me a Google invite 7 minutes before the interview. I accepted and the time for the interview came and went. GM was over 10 minutes late in calling me. The recruiter didn't apologize or even recognize they called late. They asked me two questions, "Describe Yourself" and "Why do you want to work for GM?". I talked for about 10 minutes and then the recruiter said that was it. What? There was no follow up from them at all. No feedback. I tried to ask questions about the position and they said they can't answer those and I would have to ask the hiring manager.

    The next day I received an automated email that said GM does not have a specific opportunity for me at this time.

    My resume was a great fit for this position. I didn't even have a chance to speak with someone with technical expertise who could accurately evaluate my skills.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    Received interview after speaking to recruiters at Career Fair. Fairly straightforward as they are recruiting heavily from my college. Met at the faculty club where all rooms were being used by GM for interviews. I was told that they were impressed with the communication and technical skills but because they were primarily looking for Juniors, I stood a slim chance.
