    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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 Questions

    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

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

    Industrial Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    The first evening I attended a hiring event with a large number of other candidates. The other candidates were from a variety of backgrounds looking for a variety of jobs. During the hiring event we met with hiring managers and discussed what their expectations for their candidates were and we coordinated interviews for the next day. The recruiters were excellent, encouraging people with higher degrees to be open to adjacent fields of work than their focused studies. The other candidates were energetic and friendly- something that was later reflected in the workforce when I accepted the position. I went through a few interviews with different groups, some were single interviewers, some were multiple interviewers. In all cases they were interested in my engineering experience and team work experience. The interviewers reflected my initial impression of the candidates and the recruiting team: energetic and friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • The standard questions asked were related to teams and conflicts. None of the questions were unexpected and there were not any technical questions asked.   Answer Question
