    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!

    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty simple. There was a career fair in my school. I approached the recruiters about more information, next thing I know I have an interview with them.

    After the interview (which was purely behavior questions) - kind of normal for a first interview. I was told to wait for them to contact me.

    About a week after I received an email from one of the recruiters letting me know that I have an interview at a particular time. I was not given a heads up or anything, so that was kind of frustrating.

    During the interview they went over a power point, kind of trying to sell you on GM because lets face it as a graduating college students we all may get approached by different companies. Then we did a tour of the building, showing us where the magic happens and finally it was the interview.

    The interview was all behavioral questions again - no technical questions, mainly because they put you through an intense training program once you get hired.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. What was one wrong decision that you made in the past and what was the outcome?
      2. What was a risk that you took recently and what happened after you took that risk?
      3. Tell me about a time when you were presented with a problem, but did not have the tools to solve the problem.
      4. Why do you want to work for GM? What made you chose us?
