    Hey all,

    I decided about 6 months ago to start applying for GE . The engine test site is 15 minutes from my house and currently I drive 3 hrs daily, and have done so for 12 yrs at my current job as an aircraft technician. This branch of GE is very difficult to get in and once there, you have a great chance to retire from there, very low turnover rate. Yesterday I interviewed in front of a panel of 4 people, mind you I have sent numerous resumes over the years and I finally got a call, I would be an engine test stand mechanic. Overall I think the interview went very good, I answered all their questions accurately and concisely, this would be a huge step in my career, and they have 7000 acres in which only the employees can bow hunt !!!!!!!!! I am very nervous and I was told that they were still interviewing and should have an answer within a week or 2. SO fingers crossed you guys

    Good luck {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}. We were owned by G.E. for five years and was glad to see them go. But we were not on the same corp. plans as the reg. G.E. aerospace which i have heard were better.
