Methods Process Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Boeing in April 2014.
Interview Details – I applied for the position in October and did not hear back until April, around 6 months. I got contacted via email for the position and set up an interview for later in the week.
I arrived at the office and was interviewed by two managers. The interview consisted of five behavioral questions, all regarding experiences that were relevant to the position. These questions were not the typical behavioral questions such as "tell me a time when you faced conflict in a work environment" but rather were about times when you used certain skills; for example: analyzing data, making a recommendation based on that data, and presenting it in the form of a chart/graph/model. These questions threw me off a bit, since I was expecting the standard behavioral questions.
The questions directed at me took around 35 minutes or so, and the remaining 25 minutes I asked questions to the managers, who were very enthusiastic in their answers. The interview in total took one hour.
Less than a week later I was contacted the a hiring manager with Boeing and was given an offer. After accepting the offer, I had to pass a background check and drug test, as well as sign various documents. This process took around a week before I was accepted for employment.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you were given a set of data, had to analyze the data, and make a recommendation using that data in the form of a graph or model. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.
Manufacturing Engineer III Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details – The hiring process can be tedious and a crapshoot at best. The online hiring process requires you to fill out your online Resume in a way that it will fit certain keywords that are in the job description in order to get through the first filter before any human eyes possibly even see or consider interviewing you. It can take MANY months to see any change in your requisition status and that can be very annoying. IF you are lucky enough to have your resume looked at and you ACTUALLY get an interview, it can then take a few months to even hear back. To say the hiring process is flawed is an understatement. But given the size and complexity of the company as a whole, I don't know what they would change or how they would do it.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you were faced with conflicting priorities. How did you determine the top priority? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Vacation time could not be negotiated, but salary was negotiable.

After passing the first interview I was asked to come back to interview with a few of the team members that I would be working with. This was a round table discussion with 6 members where the goals was to see if I would fit in with the team dynamic.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you used data analytics to solve a problem. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I submitted a counter offer and it took 3 weeks to hear back.
