Helpful (3)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boeing (Everett, WA) in July 2012.
I prepared for the interview, but was asked questions that I did not expect. It was administrative based. The interview critisized my experience and skills twice. I have a professional background. Boeing employees believe that they know more than anyone in the world.

Helpful (3)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Auburn, WA) in September 2011.
I was interviewed by a panel of 3. They employed their "structured interview process" which consisted of a number of questions that start with "tell me about a time when..." . While I think that this is a very objective way to interview a group of candidates, the assumption is that every candidate will have the experience that they are asking about--something that is highly unfair if you don't have an exact match. For instance, "tell me about a time when you led a diverse team of people. What was the situation/tasks involved, what actions did you take, and what was the result?" So what if you led a team of people that wasn't diverse? Or perhaps you were part of a diverse team but didn't lead it? What if the situation had nothing to do with a type of position you were applying for?

Helpful (8)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boeing in June 2013.
I applied online, got an interview a week later. The interview was scheduled to last 45 minutes, but mine lasted about an hour and a half. I receive an offer call from my boss after 3 hours. An effective PM is one that shows very strong empathetic skill and strength/confidence in their ability to lead and get the job done. Remember, when you get an interview, they already think you're qualified. Make sure you are able to convey your social skills and passion for project management in your interview. It is by far one of the most difficult jobs to land due to the rare nature of someone who possesses strong social skill, technical prowess, and proven adaptability.
- Make sure to display your personality up front. Do research on the company and think about why and how your skills can contribute to the company. This is true for any interview. STAR method questions are very straightforward. If you do your research, you may be able to predict a few questions they will ask. Be honest. I feel this advice was key to my success in getting an offer. Good luck! 1 Answer

Reasons for Declining
The initial promotion, travel, and compensations were not contained in the final employment offer. The position was in Brussels, Belgium with 70% travel to remote portions of the globe. I was also informed this was an unaccompanied tour of two years. My wife did not agree to two years separation.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.
This is big recruiting event at Seattle. There is no marking at the building, so go across the street and park at their facility. Go through the tunnel to across the street to reach your destination. Because this is a hiring event, so many people have their interview at the same time. We were direct to cubicle size tent. It was so close that you can hear other people talk at the next cubicle. It was summer and super hot at 3 pm. I met 2 managers, they were clearly so exhausted from interviewing all day. One of the manager sweat a lot and couldn't concentrate to write my behavioral interview answer.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing in February 2015.
It was a phone interview conducted by a panel of three interviewers from various locations. You are rated by each panel member based on your responses to a standardized list of questions. The questions asked were scenario based questions where they wanted you to explain from your experience how you had dealt with different types of situations.
- The questions asked allowed the panel to rate your skill level for technical problem solving abilities and techniques, initiative for taking on and solving problems, and others related to leadership and teamwork. There was very little interaction with the panel. They asked, you answered, with very minimal follow up questions or opportunity for an open discussion. Answer Question
