Assembler B Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Boeing in August 2013.
Interview Details – Applied for the job online after finding the listing on INDEED app. Was contacted for a phone interview that was no more than 15 minutes. Next phase was filling out the complete paperwork including taking competency tests and work place personality testing. Then was called for a second phone interview with a 2nd level manager. And a interview was scheduled to fly out in person. Boeing set it all up and of course paid for all travel and accommodations. The communication was mostly done by email, then finalized with phone calls. This was a relatively stress free arrangement. The interview was in STAR format. With some for thought interview was painless. There were 5 people in the room including the 2nd level that did the 2nd phone interview. Everyone was easy and a painless process if you discount the normal interview jitters. After the interview on returning home within the week an offer email was sent and electronically accepted. Then it took about two months for all the background checks to clear and to schedule a start date.
Interview Question – There where remarkably no technical questions only "team situational" questions that needed to be answered in STAR format. It seemed the only reason for the interview was a formality for face to face contact. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Boeing does not negotiate contracts, at least on hourly employees. What they offer is your choice to only accept or decline.
Financial Analyst Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Boeing in September 2012.
Interview Details – I had one on campus interview with Boeing after I met them at a career fair at my college. This interview was pretty "STAR" driven, as they asked me about my general interest in the position as well as situational questions to test my fit for the company. This was a rather relaxed interview. About two weeks later I received a call with an internship offer from the company.
The next interviews I had were in Seattle. They were held at a hotel in the Seattle area and used to place us in our individual groups. I interviewed with four different potential groups to see which would be the best fit. After that, I was placed in the group that best matched to what I wanted.
Interview Question – Please tell us what skills you've learned in school that directly apply to working for The Boeing Company. Answer Question
Instructional Systems Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Boeing in January 2012.
Interview Details – 3-4 staff members ask a series of questions usually starting with, "Tell me about a time..." Each person has a question or three to ask and they all evaluate each response using likert evaluation scale. You are asked to relate experiences and you should always project a positive response. Avoid even the vaguest implication that you do not play well with others, under any circumstances.
Interview Question – Give an example of a time you faced change and how you dealt with that. As a contractor and as an instructional designer managing projects, change is life. New contract assignments, new projects, shifting teams, matrixed staff: a better question would be to ask about a time without change. View Answer

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.
