Very Easy Interview
Financial Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details – Interview was easy as they only asked behavioral questions
Negotiation Details – Not negotiable
Supply Chain Management Intern Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Boeing
Interview Details – Applied through indeed and set up a phone interview after one week. Behavioral interview that lasted 60 minutes on the phone with three people on their end of the line. There were 4 questions, each with sub questions depending on your response. Laid back environment and the questions I asked received very informative answers.
Interview Question – Was asked to describe a situation where I led a team in work or school. Testing leadership and communication qualities. Answer Question
Engineering Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Boeing in September 2013.
Interview Details – Attended the university career fair where talked to a recruiter and submitted a resume. Received a call later that day for an interview the next day. Got a call offering the position hours later.
Interview Question – Don't recall a specific question, but the interview was conducted by 3 current employees and was a very structured interview. Answer Question
Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details – The interviewer has a list of questions that are clearly from a script, where they are sure the are P.C. and couldn't possibly be grounds for a complaint. That makes it difficult for both sides to actually communicate anything meaningful about the job or how interactions with the rest of the team might go.
Interview Question – The most unexpected thing is there weren't any questions that actually meant anything. I knew about the actual work being done through my connection. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, as this was a contract with a fixed billing rate.
Stress Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Boeing in September 2013.
Interview Details – Boeing contacted the honor society that I am a part of at my university and said they were coming to our career fair and hiring for EAHI. I completed the application and submitted my resume and received an interview the next day. I interviewed with 3 employees and found out whether or not I got the job the day after. After this we were to pick our favorite positions from a list of openings and speak with the managers so that they could provide the best fit for us. Overall great experience and everything seemed to work seamlessly.
Interview Question – Behavioral questions so most difficult may have been "biggest weakness" or "describe a time you encountered a problem in a group setting, how was it resolved?" Answer Question
Business Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details – Applied online and heard back about a phone interview. You have to call into a conference call line where the interviewers should already be waiting.
The interview, in my opinion, was one of the strangest interviews I have ever had. While the interviewers were extremely friendly, they made it clear that you should not deviate even slightly from the STAR model for even the simplest questions. It got to the point where at the beginning of the interview, they specifically ask for you to identify the situation, task, etc. while answering. This made the interview pretty awkward, and really caught me off guard. The format of the interview makes it really hard for you to get a better understanding of the company, and for the interviewers to better understand your financial skills that are relavant to the position. After the interview, you asked to preference location/specific positions.
Interview Question – Every single STAR behavioral question possible. Answer Question
Manufacturing Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Boeing in March 2014.
Interview Details – Applied through Boeing career site, contacted within 2 weeks to fill out additional information. Eventually scheduled an interview date. I was flown to Seattle and shuttled (along with 8 other people all applying for same position) to interview site. Career fair setting. They call your name when they are ready to interview you.
It was noisy during interview. (25-50 other people all interviewing makes a bit of white noise)
Interviewed by two managers from different engineering disciplines.
Asked the standard STAR questions.
I was caught off guard as the final questions they asked were all VERY similar in nature and I had to try and come up with a different story to say almost the same exact answer. They were very patient and even suggested ideas for me to draw upon.
I felt confident as I touched upon every requirement of the job description in my answers.
Contacted within 3 business days with an offer.
Background check in progress.
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate. They surpassed my salary expectations.
Very Easy Interview
The Recruiting Process IS Ridiculous! Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Boeing in September 2013.
Interview Details – Contacted by one of its preferred vendor agencies. Guaranteed the only the updates you will receive to your candidate status is "we're still waiting to hear from the hiring managers." Really??! After months of this nonsense, have moved on to interviewing with companies that have a clue. No wonder the company is pitching downward. The company's internal talent acquisition mechanism is definitely broken and not likely to gear up in this competitive market space. It's really easy to blame recruiting for poor corporate hiring management, operations, and leadership.
Interview Question – Standard operational procedure questions. No challenging ones. Basically the staffing agency was just checking the boxes on a questionnaire. Answer Question
Business Career Foundation Program Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details – The interview was with 3 hiring managers on a conference call. They took turns asking 5 total questions such as "What unique skill set do you bring to Boeing", "What do you know about Boeing", "Why do you want to work for Boeing"... etc. Be sure to be specific and give examples to support everything. I made my interview into a full conversation and made sure to let them know how interested I was by asking genuine questions that demonstrate my familiarity with the company.
Interview Question – I was prepared for all of the questions, but they really wanted specifics on times when I demonstrated positive communication skills to lead to a bigger goal. Find a way to really set yourself apart for the "What unique skill set do you bring to Boeing" question. Answer Question
IT Architect Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Boeing in May 2010.
Interview Details – Very process oriented (like the company). Did not ask any technical questions. Just behavioral.
Interview Question – Name a scenario where you had to work with someone who was difficult Answer Question
