Declined Offer – Reviewed Jan 21, 2013
Interview Details – I got to the first step, the phone interview. I generally find phone interviews to be more awkward than face to face interviews and this one was even more so because she put me on mute while I was answering questions. It felt like I was talking into an abyss. The interviewer was really nice however and only asked 4 really general questions.

Tell me about a time when you had a difficult team member and how you overcame that situation. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I could not move out to the west coast at that time
Declined Offer – Interviewed in Los Angeles, CA Jun 2012 – Reviewed Jan 14, 2013
Interview Details – There were initially 2 phone round interviews where I spoke with a hr rep and an engineer. A week later I was contacted for an onsite interview. Boeing paid for the flights to get me to the location as well as provided me with a car and a hotel to stay at. The interview was for the most part very behavioral. Boeing uses the STAR approach. 4 different people from various groups interviewed me on site and each person was mostly just looking to see if I would be a good fit in Boeing and their culture. One engineer did ask me several technical questions but nothing too hard (some digital communication ones).
Interview Question – Describe a time when you worked in a group where there was problems between groupmates. How did you resolve the issue and was it successful. Answer Question

Interview Details – Applied online. 4 weeks later received a call from the hiring manager to schedule an interview. Interview is scheduled for 60min. The first 45min to answer the STAR questions used and the last 15min to ask the interview panel any questions. Be prepared to ask questions. The hiring manager emphasized that point when we scheduled the interview.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Huntsville, AL Nov 2011 – Reviewed Jan 14, 2013
Interview Details – After you apply, unless you were friends/family of an employee, you could wait up to 6 months before the company will try to fill the position. I've seen several friends be "under consideration" for months. If you are smart enough to tailor your resume to the job requisition, and you pass the automated word search, then one day you will get a phone call setting up an interview. They will pull you into the building that you will typically be working in. You will meet with your direct manager, and then the site specific labor manager (usually someone several levels up). The other reviews on this site for the interview process were pretty accurate. "Describe your most challenging job" etc. They will then interview several people, and could take several weeks to let you know you were hired. Good news is that they will let you know one way or another for sure. If it has been 6 months of waiting, it isn't that they forgot about you, they probably don't have the funding. They will at least e-mail you to let you know if you have been favored or not. Oddly enough, I applied for an analyst job and was offered an agent job.
Interview Question – They seemed all very timid, or rather, any interview website has the usual suspects. What is the hardest thing you've done? What is your weakest ability? What do you like to do with your free time? etc. etc. etc. View Answer
Negotiation Details – It seemed that the entry level position was a flat "This is what you will take" and I hear it is the same up until the higher levels. Whether or not that is true, I don't know, the offer was definitely in the middle of the salary range, and the benefits seem above average for the market. Boeing does have salary tables on most requisitions, so you can compare.
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Seattle, WA – Reviewed Jan 11, 2013
Interview Details – Boeing has a good job posting system, but it's hard to know whether a human gets to look at your application. Ensure key terms are included in your resume from the job posting. Interviews are structured, meaning that all candidates are asked similar questions to promote fairness, but limit flexibility in the interview.
Interview Question – They ask technical questions to gauge your skill, behavior questions to determine your ethos, and usually ask about your experiences, both good and bad. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – This was my first job out of college, and the offer came in higher than I had anticipated. I took it without any negotiations, and my career growth from there has been good.
