Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer
Long Beach, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Boeing.

Interview Details – Applied online. Got a phone call a few months later for a phone interview, but they wanted to do the phone interview the next day which didn't give me any time to prepare for the interview as the next day I already had a 16 hour work day planned. So I winged it based on my past research. i had to make the interview fast because I had to do it on my break. So I had a 20 minute phone interview where they went through the 10 standard questions. In the end, I voiced that I did not like that they didn't give me enough time to prepare for the interview. After feeling I didn't get the job because I voiced my opinion, I got a hiring package. That hiring manager to this day still says that was the most impressive interview you ever had.

Interview Question – Because I practice for other interviews, I went through 100 potential interview questions, so none was a surprise. The worse is always about your worst quality.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. People keep saying to negotiate, but I was just happy to get a job. They say it doesn't hurt to ask. Some managers say if they don't ask, they get upset.

Inside Sales/CDG Software Division Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Long Beach, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing in April 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by CDG/Boeing from their own internal recruitment team. This was for an inside sales position working out of their main Long Beach location. I had 2 phone interviews, 1 casual and the other more formal/technical. I also had 2 in-person interviews at Long Beach. 1 was with the director of sales and the other was with the president of the division. They were standard interviews which followed typical styles and length (60-70 minutes each). I never had more than 8 days separating each point of contact and they moved reasonably fast/organized through their process. After 9 days from my last interview, I reached out to the internal recruiter for a hiring update/status. I was informed that I was "1 of 3 well qualified candidates and a decision would be made within 3 days and I would be notified. A week went by and no word either way. I decided to send an email asking if my candidacy was still being considered by Boeing, still no answer from them. This was surprising, since the job posting was still up on their web site. In the end, no one from CDG/Boeing ever responded to my inquiry. How long could it take to respond to one of your 3 job finalists via return email? I guess too long for Boeing. GO AIRBUS!!

Interview Question – I can't think of one question or interviewing strategy used by anyone there out of the standard "cookie cutter" style used from any other company.   Answer Question

IT Leadership Opportunities Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Long Beach, CA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Boeing in October 2010.

Interview Details – Overall - the process wasn't completely terrible. There was a phone interview and a 2 on 1 interview, where one of the interviewers came off very aggressive. They offer to fly, but don't reimburse for travel to the airport, which took me 3 hours of driving one-way. Terrible at getting back to you about anything.

Interview Question – Describe an analytical problem you had to solve   Answer Question
