Software Developer Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
Interviewed at General Motors
Interview Details There's a phone interview, then an in person interview.
The in person interview has a few people interview you, including your hiring manager. Don't believe that is your permanent manager; my manager changed after a week, and other IT folk had their manager change only 2 weeks after hire.
Interview Question – They have some weird format they want you to answer in "what did you learn". So be prepared to explain that you learned something in every difficult previous work experience. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I countered, and GM said no.
Very Easy Interview
Engineering Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)

Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in November 2013.
Interview Details Easy going, laid back process. They asked the typical questions of "When have you been faced with a problem and how did you overcome it?"
Reason for Declining – I chose to go to a company where I was going to learn SharePoint Development

Interview Question – Reason for leaving current job View Answer
Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at General Motors in January 2014.
Interview Details The process took over 3 months...that was the worst part of the experience. Made me really want to work there. Great interviewers...up to the last interviewer which was awkward because he was clearly not up to speed as to how long and who I had spoken to.
Interview Question – Why are you here? Answer Question
Senior Java Developer Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at General Motors
Interview Details Applied online and it hardly took couple of business days to get a call from HR, I was asked the routine questions like if I was willing to relocate, why was I looking for a change, what I was earning at my current job e.t.c and finally what I was expecting...and they said what I requested was in the pa range and they arranged me with an telephonic interview.
I get this call and before the interviewer gets technical he explains as to what he is looking for in the potential hire.
In the technical round I was asked all sorts of questions starting from basic to all the way to the architect level..was not very sure as to why I was asked architect/Lead level questions for a "Senior Developer" position? I thought may be he was just trying to know me or something but it turned out the HR had submitted me to Lead position without even my knowledge.
It would have been better on the HR part to submit for the position that I applied and this seems to me more intentional than accidental for reasons that I can suspect.
Interview Question – Questions that I was not expecting for the position that I have applied Answer Question

Design Sculptor Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in October 2010.
Interview Details -single interviews mostly to reveal personality and approach to problems. Group interview to address technical expertise. Group of people ask you job related questions as you present a portfolio..
Overall it was very intimidating not really knowing any of the interviewers, later I realized that they were all easy going and I was really psyching myself out.
- Nothing unusual. One person asked a question the actually betrayed their ignorance of the subject they were supposed to be judging. View Answer
- They ask what you would do if you thought you weren't gonna complete something on time. View Answer
