    GE? Please do not look to them for “Salvation” a job or what ever you are looking for they are not even a second class company. I had three Credit cards with GE Money, Wal Mart, Lowes and Fleet Farm. They are all an Indian company…. Not feather! I don’t shop any of them anymore. When You get a call from a credit card company. The first question is what country are you speaking from…Then just hang up….
