    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Very generic interview with only four or five impersonal questions.

    Questions were about previous work experience or about how you would handle a situation or experience.

    I believe the interview followed the STAR method. Situation, task, action, result

    I applied online - interviewed at Boeing in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Structured Interview was direct, since it was very structured, the Interviewer had no reason to provide feedback. I had no sense of whether it was a good interview or crappy.

    Retrofit & Repair Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Boeing in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got a call stating selection for interview around 2 months after applying. Scheduled for phone interview with senior engineers. Phone interview lasted about 30minutes, and was asked a series of questions beginning with "Tell me of a time..." Be prepared to offer concrete & relevant examples. As a candidate with the prequisite educational qualifications, but hoping for a career change it proved difficult trying to draw examples from work experience in a different industry.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Boeing uses what they call a structure interview process. They usually ask 5-7 questions in the attribute areas that are described in the job description. I was asked 5 questions. The format of the answer needs to first describe a work or personal experience in the form of a "situation", and then proceed to how you responded to that situation and then the outcome of that situation.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions, since they all fit one of the attribute categories in the job description. As long as you have examples you can apply in each attribute category you should be fine.   Answer Question

    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Boeing in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very long interview-hiring-cycle. Received an email from their corporate recruiter to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. More of a conversation/screening resume review rather than formal interview. Received a callback from a different corporate recruiter to set-up an in-person interview. The in-person interview was a standard behavioral based (STAR) panel interview led by the hiring manager with two colleagues. No surprises, very straight forward Interview 101 stuff.

    Information Technology Career Foundation Program (ITCFP) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Renton, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Renton, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Boeing in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted May 2014.
    I was flown to Puget Sound, WA for the 2 stage assessment (interview) 2 weeks later in June. Boeing lodged its candidates at DoubleTree. Pretty fancy. Warning: You pay your cab to the airport. Boeing handles the rest. Also they give you meal tickets so you dont spend your money. Its a day and a half ordeal. Get to WA in the afternoon or at night then leave the next day in the afternoon or evening. They replied me the next day after the interview with my rejection. :(

    Interview:
    There was was a behaviorial/structured interview and a group interview.
    In the mail they send out before the interview, they give out an attachment explaining the interview process, I mentioned above They tell you like 2 questions they will ask and put them up like they are examples. They are NOT examples. They asked me those questions. Prepare a nice strong story and arranged your answers in the STAR format, so you are not missing anything. Be prepared for others. They have 5-6 questions to ask you. 2 of them are: Describe a time when you were working on a team project and you had to motivate your teammates to accomplish their tasks. What was the situation? What role did you play? What was the outcome?
    Tell me about a time when you had to meet multiple deadlines. What was the situation? What did you do? How did you handle this situation and what was the result?

    Perception:
    There was like an hour of rest in between where the program manager talks to the candidates about the program. I've got to say, it would have been a nice program for any intern or job seeker. Boeing is mighty flexible and all their employees I met seemed generally satisfied with where they worked and praised how much they could move within the company. Pick their brains if you are super interested.
    All the candidates (interns and job seekers) alike were very talented people. Some are college grads and others are juniors and seniors in college, but most of them have extensive experience from decent schools. Please don't be worried, but I assure whoever reads this, you should know, that they are not hiring all candidates and that you have competition.

    Office is cubicle like. Pretty regular and not too attractive. Just nice enough. I am unsure about the work culture, but I noticed they are well equipped with good computers and they have pretty nice health incentives. From my former experience with manufacturing companies, they seem pretty standard in how they work...computers and some running around. However it seems team work and communication is key there.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly 2 most unexpected questions got me and probably had me look unprepared. It was something like describing a project and explaining the methodology I used, why I used said method and what was the outcome.

      Something similar to the above, but I had to state the technical specifications of the solution. So in general, please prepare solid solutions and explain them in a stepwise format. I tripped over these questions for some reason. Even if you have interview experience, please do NOT underestimate the exploitative potential of these 2 questions. I believe they got me, because I was ill prepared for them.

    • Group interviews ask you to solve a problem (like a business case). Mine asked us to solve a problem concerning information and a need make it accurate, eradicate old information and make changes in real time. Also help people have certain level of access to this information.

      If I had known I wouldnt have said much, cuz I didnt know much. My advice is: Let people talk. You do the listening and contribute what you know. It is timed like this:
      15 minutes to go over the problem with by yourself, in the interviewer's presence. There are like 4 interviewers that wont say a thing and are writing their evaluations of you (you are with your team, but you are not allowed to talk to them in these 15 minutes).
      30 minutes to plan with your team about what the solution will be. This where you need to talk and be wary of your interviewers (I suggest you read up on group interviews of this sort). During this time, yall need to find time to know how you intend to present your solution to him.
      5 minutes to present your findings to the head interviewer (he will make himself known).

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Boeing in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    applied online...phone call to set up initial interview with panel of 5...no idea who set up the interview (never identified if he was HR, hiring manager?)...phone screen was in a conference room where only one of them was by the phone (couldn't really hear any of the others talking)...within the first 30 seconds of the call the job was described without the HR verbiage and it was clear that it was not the right fit for me - i explained as much and suggested that the interview end, but went ahead anyway - my mistake....not the right position for me, led to an hour-long ordeal that was uncomfortable at best for all and a total waste of time for everyone involved
