    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fullerton, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Out of college, I was subjected to a round robin style interview session. The first interview was with a relatively new/young engineer. I felt that this interview really helped Raytheon determine if I retained anything in school and was up with the technology. The second and third interviews were with engineering management; one technical, one non-technical. The technical portion really focused on aspects of my resume that could apply to the position I was interviewing for. The non-technical interview was focused on my life in general, work experience, and how I handle certain types of stress, people, etc.

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through their website and was contacted about 3 weeks later. Was interviewed with a talent scout. Pretty ordinary interview. He asked me questions about my resume and some psychological questions. Nothing hard to answer. Things went well and he said he was going to recommend me to the next step of the interview process. I'm looking to hear back from them in the next few weeks or so.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from a recruiter at the company after having submitted an application several weeks prior. I was asked to provide a few examples of my work from previous internships and/or school projects that might be relevant to the position. I basically put together a portfolio and sent that over. I got a call about 3 weeks later from a different recruiter. We set up an interview for the following week where I met with 3 managers. The interviews were very relaxed and conversational. They had looked over the work experiences and asked me basically to describe those experiences in more detail, with maybe a few questions thrown in. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I was told I should hear back in about 3 weeks, and ended up getting an offer after about 4 weeks.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on site during a campus interview day where they interviewed several people at once. I interviewed with two different senior level software engineers and was asked only basic questions about myself, my resume, software concepts in general, and a few java specific questions. I wasn't asked to solve any programming or thought problems.
