    BI Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about 2 weeks from initial phone screening to on-site interview. Interview was behavioral focused (situations/actions/lessons learned) with technical questions thrown in at the end. Overall the interview process was quite easy.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't the questions so much, but the fact that for each area or behavior, there was a series of 3 questions that you could choose to answer. This made it difficult to keep the conversation flow as by the time you heard the third question; you'd then forgotten what the first option was.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The hiring process began on campus at a career fair. I spoke with a GM representative for 5-10 minutes one-on-one and she advised me to complete an online application. A couple of weeks after the career fair, I was invited to participate in an on campus interview. Two months after completing the on campus interview, I was invited to have a final interview at the GM Technical Center. After the final interview, I was made an offer over the phone first and then via email.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    My process started with a resume drop at a career fair, I actually missed the finance contact but was contacted for a phone interview with a recruiter a week later. I then had onsite interviews with 4 different Finance directors and had to complete a case study. Though the process may have changed slightly (i.e. multiple interviewers) the core of the process is roughly the same.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at General Motors.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their web site, Did a phoner a week later and then got a call to come in. Talked to five people and all of them stuck to a format for the interview. They had set questions and wanted to fill them all out between the five of them. I later would call the recruiter back and told me he had left the company. He game me another number and that person had left too. I sent an email and it was returned as undeliverable. Felt a bit mistreated since I had given up three hours of my time.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot about how tech is applied. They seemed to be a bit behind on this and so it was tough to answer the question without insulting them.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at General Motors in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had my resume pulled from career services at my university. We had a phone screening, and I was contacted the next week to set up a face-to-face interview. The process took three to four weeks overall. It was one of the easier interviews I've been to. The people were extremely nice and personable. Overall a great learning experience!

    Interview Questions
    • They had a series of behavioral questions (tell me about a time when..) with three answers to each: Give me an example, What was the outcome, what did you learn? There was also one additional technical question. It's not a "whats the port number of HTTP" type question, but rather "solve this problem" type thing.   Answer Question

    the process started with a behavioral interview. The interviewer seemed interested but rushed at the same time like he had heard it all before. There were only three questions and it seemed like it didn't really get the entire picture.
