    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Interview was relaxed and easy, the hiring manager was easygoing and asked very general questions, such as "tell me about yourself" and "what do you see yourself doing in 5 to 10 years". A relatively easy interview. However, the wait time for the hiring process was very long and drawn out.

    Interview

    Phone Interview. HR called in the evening to set up a screening interview with the hiring manager. Next, was given an application to complete. This was in addition to the resume and cover letter that I previously provided when applying to the job. Next, I received information about how to participate in the screening interview (phone number, participants, etc).

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A week before the scheduled interview I emailed the recruiter who set it up asking why I had not received any details about the interview. The next day I sent another email asking the same thing since I did not get a response. The recruiter finally answered that there was no interview but she would recheck to see what was really happening. At the end of the day I received a phone call from an embarrassed recruiter saying that the interview was actually on and that she was sorry for the mixup.
    The day of the interview there was a presentation of the company benefits. Then I had three separate interviews. Each was a relaxed conversational interview. Each one said that my background was exactly what they were looking for. At the end, after several remarks about my age, I was told that I was overqualified.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Raytheon in March 2015.

    Interview

    The day started at 8:30am with an hour long presentation of the company and the program. There were 9 people interviewing for 4 positions. For the next 3 hours, each hour a set of 3 people was taken for interviewing, while the rest of the candidates were left to keep themselves busy talking to former members of the rotational program. There were 3 interviews, one 1-on-1 and two 2-on-1, each 15min long. They asked standard interview questions and cared more about leadership roles than your actual skill as an engineer.

    Interview

    An interesting interview. I was given a walk through the facility by the group manager first. The folks that interviewed me were very friendly and asked me questions relating my past experience. The group provided me with a brief description of the project they were working on and described each of their roles within the group. Finally, we talked about how my past experience could complement the group's skills.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call about 2 weeks later from a Hiring Manager. I had the phone screen with him. He asked about my experience, and pretty much went over my resume. He asked me if I was willing to travel, and told me that I would get a call to schedule an interview. I got an email a week later providing dates where the other hiring manager was available and I had my interview with him and another person through the phone. They asked me about my courses in school and job experience. No technical questions.
