    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Raytheon in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview took place on campus at part of OCR. It was a 30minute 1:1 interview and was behavioral. There were questions that asked about conflicts in team and how I resolved them. Other questions included identifying my strengths and areas to improve on. Overall felt like an average conversation.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line thru Raytheon site; 1 week later I received a phone call from HR asking if I would be able to come in the following week for an interview.
    I met with the hiring manager and then with the 2nd line manager. No trick questions; pretty straightforward. It appeared the 2nd line manager was looking for a bit more than the job description or hiring manager mentioned. A professional experience however.

    Internal Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tewksbury, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tewksbury, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially, they get back to you in acceptable time. Then, it all goes south. They drag on the process for weeks. First, having the post internal, then saying they have to post externally. It's a good month before the interviews start. First, it's a phone interview. It's pretty straight forward. If you get a second, in person, interview, the person rarely seems interested. Like they are on a time crunch to get in so many people an hour. Overall, they don't really spend time answering your questions. They just say that they are good questions, provide a stock meaningless answers and then thank you for your time. It'll be another several weeks before you hear if you get the job or not.

    Interview Questions
    • Usually, they ask experience based questions. "Tell me how you handled this situation...." This time I was asked how I handled a situation where I had to improve a process and, as quickly as possible, what are the steps I took and what was the result. If you didn't succeed, don't bother using that example. It will automatically look poorly on you.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication through a recruiter, then comes a phone interview with the project manager/hiring manager. Within a week you should find out if they want to fly you to location for a 1:1 interview. You will meet with three or four different managers on location who will ask you mostly similar questions about.. When was a time when you had to solve a problem? When was a time where you had to deal with a difficult colleague? When was a time when you went above and beyond? They will rent you a car and put you up and the recruiters are very helpful and open. You may have to bug them for an answer whether you got the job or not if it has been over a week later.

    Interview Questions
    • All the usual problem-solving type questions asked, but no technical questions, mostly personality.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    I applied for one of the positions they had listed on their website and was contacted for a phone interview after a few weeks. Their questions were mostly non-technical; the phone interview seemed to be more of a personality assessment with some questions on educational background and internship experience mixed in.

    It went well, and they extended an invitation to fly me out for an on-site interview. I received a tour of their facilities and was interviewed by a few of their software leads. Questions were, again, primarily based around personality and experience, though more time was spent educating me about the company than asking questions.

    After a month of not hearing back from HR, I was e-mailed the generic Raytheon notice detailing my removal from the selection process. Nonetheless, it was a good experience overall.

    Interview Questions
    • The generic "where do you picture yourself in 3-5 years" question.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by email to set up an interview with the department manager. The day of the interview, the manager was unavailable due to "circumstances beyond his control." Instead, I was interviewed by 2 other engineers and a lower-level manager. I was told I would be contacted one way or the other in about a week. Two weeks later, hearing nothing, I called the manager I interviewed with. He directed me to an HR rep, who routed me to another HR rep, who sent me an email 2 days later saying someone else already got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • From the manager: "My son is starting at CNU (where I went) this fall, can you recommend some things to do on the weekends?"   View Answer
