I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon.
Submitted an application on the website, and then a recruiter called me afterwards for a phone screen. The onsite interview was with 4 engineers and the engineering manager, 45-50 minutes per person. With a site tour for a total of 4 hours, with lunch if you're from out of town. I had another phone screening with a program manager about 5 months after the onsite interview.
- How do you design a flip-flop in verilog? Using pseudo code 1 Answer
I gave them my range, but should have just stuck to the high range. Stick to a number and don't budge from it. You can ask for a sign on bonus too. State that too after you finalized your salary.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon.
It was very slow and impersonal. After an in person interview following a career fair I was in limbo for a good while before being offered a video interview. The video interview was not a 1 on 1 interview, however, it was text based questions which you replied to over webcam. They recorded your verbal responses so many hirers could see. The recorded interview felt very uncomfortable and impersonal since there was no one at the other end and it gave no opportunity to ask questions of your interviewer or develop a conversation of any sort.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Raytheon.
I was taken into a room with 2 people in it. They asked me questions about my education and had me do a few on paper coding questions. Several people were in and out of the interview. After completing the coding questions a different interviewer came in and asked me questions that related more to my personality. ex: tell me about yourself, how do you feel about group work.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon.
Interviewed with multiple teams of people, each team in a group setting. Interviewers asked basic background questions to determine technical competency and to assess how well my personality fit with the rest of the team. The interview was a full day event but wasn't overly stressful. There were no off the wall questions that had nothing to do with the job.

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Denver, CO) in August 2015.
Attended open house where Raytheon was interviewing for System and Software engineers. The attendance was a mixture of both senior and entry level applicants. The applicants were held in a waiting area and then called out individually to meet with the subject SME. The interview took anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, and the wait for being called took 60 to 90 minutes.
- Met with lead software engineer. Discussed C++, UML, SW methodologies. They seemed to have too many system engineers applying for the positions, so I only interviewed on the software side. Answer Question

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Raytheon.
I started looking for a full time engineering job while in my undergraduate. I went to HENAAC in October 2014 and got an e-mail March 2015 for a position in Tucson with RMS. I was invited to a two day hiring event in April where they took care of all travel expenses plus a 58 dollar per diem :). There were about 180 intern and new college hire candidates where about 150 got offers. The first day they had an on site tour, information sessions, and networking event with the hiring managers. The next day they had the interviews and you were told if you were given an intent for an offer that day. Some canadites also applied directly online. I ended up getting three interviews and got offers from two of the departments. The security clearance and hiring took about a month and a half after graduation.
- My interview started with them explaining the position. They asked for some skill and behavior questions. Most of the questions were typical "What are your strengths and weaknesses?", etc. Answer Question
