Easy Interview

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Raytheon.

Interview Details – The position clearly required little supervision. Their questions were geared toward determining if you could learn fast, work with almost no supervision, and how well you handled unexpected changes during the work day. Not a position for someone who likes to focus on one project at a time.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. How well do you handle stress? How do you feel about working in a busy environment with constant interruptions? Are you comfortable with changing priorities throughout the day? There was obviously not a script of questions for this position when I interviewed.   Answer Question

Senior Engineer II Interview

Senior Engineer II

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Raytheon.

Interview Details – Getting a foot in the door can be tricky. It helps to get in straight from college or if you know someone. If you are going for a job that requires a security clearance, expect to eventually having to fill out a very long questionnaire (this may be done after you start working), drug test, background check, etc... Interview/hiring process took a LONG time. Be patient. I need special accommodations for voice recognition software and brother did that add to the time! But everyone is very professional and they did end up accommodating my needs. It takes doing to get in, but it is a good company.

Interview Question – I knew the folks I was interviewing with because I had worked with them previously, so my experience was likely not the usual. I was a known quantity.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate. I negotiated higher because of my previous experience.

Lean Supply Chain Interview

Lean Supply Chain

Interviewed at Raytheon

Interview Details – There was only one in person interview where I competed against three other people on the same day. They were split up between a few managers but in the same room as the other people. There were no strange questions and it was more of getting an understanding of what each person could offer

Senior Principal Engineer Interview

Senior Principal Engineer

Interviewed at Raytheon

Interview Details – Many reqs are a waste of time. They already know who they want to hire. The company typically uses job requisitions to show that they are really looking for the most qualified. If they want you, they will ask easy questions. If not, impossible questions designed to make you fail the interview. HR looks for words in your resume that match the job req. HR is the first gate keeper. HR has no knowledge of engineering, yet they are the gate keepers.

Interview Question – Why do you want this position? What are your weaknesses? Give examples of solving problems.   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst

Interviewed at Raytheon

Interview Details – The hiring process went great and the interview process also went well. It was very thorough. As long as you read the job description and can correlate your prior experience to the job you are applying for, you should do great. It was also made easy since all of us were flown to the Westin La Paloma in Tucson and interviewed there.

Interview Question – When the interviewer asked about business cases and any experience with them either in school or at prior jobs?   Answer Question
