FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a co-op and an internship?

Co-ops (short for Cooperative Education) typically involve multiple semesters of alternating between full-time work and full-time school. The typical co-op will complete two to five rotations of work, gaining a year or more of career-related work experience before graduation. Most university sponsored co-op programs also offer academic credit. Internships are typically one-semester and generally do not earn academic credit. Regardless of academic credit, we encourage you to review our Student Opportunities job board and learn more about our work assignments.

All our co-op & intern roles are paid. We provide housing & relocation assistance to students who are eligible.

At GE Appliances, we tend to use the terms co-op and intern interchangeably. Our Engineering/Technology, Manufacturing/Supply Chain and Information Technology teams encourage work assignments spanning multiple semesters. Our Commercial, Finance and Human Resource teams offer summer-only work assignments. We also offer part-time year-round work assignments in our Commercial and Finance teams for students local to the Louisville, KY, area.

Why should I consider student opportunities at GE Appliances?

Our co-op/intern roles are challenging, hands-on and impact business results. We offer you the opportunity to develop technically, personally, & professionally. We have approximately 150 co-ops per rotation cross-functionally. This student community leads cross-functional committees offering a variety of social, networking and volunteer opportunities.

We provide competitive pay rates based on the degree you are pursuing and your time in school. Our co-ops/interns are benefit eligible, including medical, dental, vision, & prescription drug coverage. Additionally, we offer paid holidays, employee discounts, an on-site fitness center and an on-site well clinic. We provide housing & relocation assistance as well to eligible students.

Our co-op/intern programs are the pipeline to our full-time Development Programs, which means less time searching for a job when you graduate.

Are you coming to my campus?

We will be visiting 25-30 campuses each semester. To see our current calendar of events, visit: Campus Calendar.

If we are not planned to visit your campus, you are still encouraged to formally apply online for roles you are interested in and qualify for. A full listing of available student opportunities can be located here: Student Opportunities job board.

Can I apply in-person for student opportunities with GE Appliances?

If we are attending a career fair at your university, we strongly encourage you to stop by and introduce yourself to us. In addition to meeting us, you must also formally apply online for positions that interest you.

If I am interested in more than 1 role/semester, do I need to apply for each position individually?

Yes. If you are interested in more than 1 start date (ex: Summer and Fall), you should apply to both semester postings. Once you've create a profile, most of your information will pre-populate for future applications, making the process of applying to multiple postings easier.

How do I find the status of my application?

If you met with our recruiters and interviewed on-campus, you should expect to hear back from us within 2-3 weeks of your interview. If you do not hear anything back, please contact the recruiter you met with for an update on your status. If you applied online but have not met a GE Appliances recruiter in-person, you will receive system generated emails advising you of your applicant status.

I have a question about the company, program, or application process — can I talk to a real-person?

If you met a recruiter on-campus, you can contact them with questions. If we did not attend your campus in-person, you can send an email to: Campus.Recruiting@geappliances.com and a member of our team will respond to you within 3-5 days.

I am a graduating senior. Do you offer full-time student opportunities?

GE Appliances has 6 functional development programs for new grads. These positions are filled primarily by students from our co-op/intern program pipeline. If vacancies remain, we post these positions on our Student Opportunities job board.

I am pursuing an advanced degree. Do you offer opportunities for grad students?

We hire MBA students into our experienced sales program, ECDP and our human resources development program, HRDP. Our technical programs may consider students pursuing Masters degrees. Please visit the Student Opportunities job board to review detailed qualifications.

Do you hire international students?

GE Appliances is an equal opportunity employer. We have sponsored visas for roles requiring a unique or specialized skillset, however, the majority of our co-op/intern roles request that a student be eligible to work in the United States for an unrestricted period of time.

Are you a GE business?

GE Appliances was part of the General Electric (GE) portfolio for over 125 years. In June 2016, Haier Group acquired GE Appliances. We pride ourselves on our GE heritage, but look forward to a successful future under our new parent company.

Where is GE Appliances located?

The majority of our student opportunities are located at our headquarters in Louisville, KY. GE Appliances also operates a manufacturing facility in Decatur, AL, and has wholly-owned subsidiaries in LaFayette, GA, and Selmer, TN.
