    Boeing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    Engineering majors are sought out but they are also always interested in IT and business majors. Typically, you must attend an interview on a Boeing site but phone interviews are not unheard of.

    Interview Questions
    • You can expect the standard "tell us a time you..." questions/scenarios. Have good examples of how you were a leader in a project, how you reacted to a diverse group of people and how you helped others. This is all standard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Boeing rarely negotiates and definitely not with Interns.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Boeing in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Extremely brief and over the phone. Very non stressful interview. Although it may be different for hiring interns than with applying for a employee position. The process was a breeze and takes an average amount of time to move through the system just as with any large fortune 500 company.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't remember. Probably, why would you be a good fit for working at Boeing?   Answer Question

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Boeing uses what they call a structure interview process. They usually ask 5-7 questions in the attribute areas that are described in the job description. I was asked 5 questions. The format of the answer needs to first describe a work or personal experience in the form of a "situation", and then proceed to how you responded to that situation and then the outcome of that situation.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions, since they all fit one of the attribute categories in the job description. As long as you have examples you can apply in each attribute category you should be fine.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Submitted Application, was contacted by 90 days after I submitted application. I was interviewed using a structured interview process. The applicant needs to talk about a situation, what I did and what was the outcome. They are looking specifically for this format. What they are looking for is: during the situation did you or your team see a need to improve upon the situation? If so, what did you do? Then the outcome, did you improve the situation by reducing a financial obligation to the company? Did you improve the situation by reducing steps it took to complete therefore you introduced a lean practice?

    Interview Questions
    • The diversity questions aren't usually about what you think it is: Gender, race, nationality. It can be about a different culture you came into or how people perceive differently because they were raised differently than you. Answers to the diversity are usually: I get along with anybody, I like all kinds of people from different races, genders and nationalities.
      Think outside the box and come up with an answer in how you might have encountered a different culture than your own and you worked with that person to come up with a compromise or a solution.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Boeing in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very long interview-hiring-cycle. Received an email from their corporate recruiter to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. More of a conversation/screening resume review rather than formal interview. Received a callback from a different corporate recruiter to set-up an in-person interview. The in-person interview was a standard behavioral based (STAR) panel interview led by the hiring manager with two colleagues. No surprises, very straight forward Interview 101 stuff.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    Applied online... a couple of weeks later was sent a questionnaire to fill out via email... a week later asked to fill out an application online... a couple of weeks later was emailed that I had been selected for an interview, was given a date but not a time or location... then two days before the interview was emailed the rest of the details. So it's a long process without much details or personal touch along the way. Interviewed in front of a panel of people... standard behavioral type questions. The interview panel was nice but it was a very structured process. Was allowed to ask questions at the end.

    Interview Questions
    • There are 5 or 6 standard behavioral questions all expecting a star response.   Answer Question

    Manufacturing Engineer I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Boeing in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the Boeing company at a NSBE convention my senior year in college. I spoke to a representative about a Manufacturing Engineering position on the 787 dreamliner program and with my fabrication background, they were immediately impressed. I had additional conversation with another representative who help a management position at Boeing and I was asked to return that evening for a 2 part interview for an Engineering I position. The first part of the interview was basic educational questions with a Boeing manager that lasted for about 45 min. After passing that, I returned the next day for a panel situational interview with 3 Boeing Engineering managers. It was intense for a first career interview as a senior. Questions like “describe a situation where you rushed to reach a deadline and how did you deal with it?”

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Everett, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Boeing in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for several positions over a period of months. Received a call and had an interviewed scheduled for about 10 days later. The interview was pretty low key, three interviewers asked me a series of questions that were mostly about how I work with other people and respond in compromising situations. I was also required to fit through a small hoop to prove that I could fit into the confined spaces that the job is performed in. I received a call with an offer later that day and accepted it. Started work in another two weeks.
