GM Interview Questions and Application Process

General Motors offers a variety of professional positions including assembly line workers, engineers, and supervisory roles. The application process for each position is adapted to the skills required for that particular job. General Motors' pre-employment assessment tests are administered by Development Dimensions International (DDI). GM invites every applicant to at least two interviews, one of which is held over the phone. During these interviews, the applicant is asked about his/her previous work experience, work attitudes, and how he/she would handle general situations relevant to their desired job. GM interviews usually include an integrity test aimed at assessing an applicant's loyalty to his/her employer.

In addition, each applicant is requested to take a personality test with a few situational judgment questions thrown in. The goal of this test is to evaluate each applicant's character, behavior, and his/her match to the job and the company. There are no right or wrong answers, but answering these questions for the first time can be very confusing. You may end up making mistakes that will negatively affect your score. Practice is the best way to overcome this obstacle and ensure your chances of being offered your desired job.

Depending on the position the candidate is applying for, he/she may also be asked to take a mechanical aptitude test. This test is used to assess applicants' basic mechanical knowledge. Applying for an hourly wage position, e.g. assembly line and other manufacturing production support work, also requires passing a hands-on assessment test. At the end of the process, all applicants are required to pass a drug test.
