    Systems Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tewksbury, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tewksbury, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume and cover letter online to be contacted by e-mail five weeks later requesting a phone interview. The phone interview took place three days later with a Systems Engineer. It was about 25 minutes going over my resume and my experiences and how they connected to the position. It was very easy going and I got a chance to ask questions throughout. The engineer told me he would put me through for the on-site interview. I was contacted a couple days later and the on-site was scheduled for the following week, all expenses paid. I, along with the other interviewees, was given a tour of the facility by recent hires, it lasted long enough to ask plenty of questions and get a sense of the environment. After the tour, we were all given a presentation about the company and then sent off to our respective interviews.There were three panel interviews and a one-on-one with the entire interview process lasting about 2 hours in total. All of the interviewers were engineers and each distinct group gave a general idea of the work they did. The interviews were casual just going over my experiences and how it might fit with the work that group did. There weren't any technical questions. After the interviews were over the interviewees collected together and were notified that we would receive a response by the following week. They made me an offer the next day with a written offer sent the following week.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was smooth and easy. The company recruiter made the first contact, then I was contacted by the hiring manager to set up the appointment. Between those contacts, I was asked to fill out a more detailed job application. Most information was pre-loaded, so it was simply a matter of answering and agreeing to more detailed information.

    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Raytheon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Overall I had a positive experience. My interview was shy of an hour long and the guy that interviewed me was very laid back. Besides the generic "why do you want the position?" questions he also asked me a lot of questions about things I had done in class and any outside projects that I had been working on.

    Electronics Technician I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Yuma, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Yuma, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by email stating that I needed to fill out some paper ( emails) about some basic work history info. I was then told that the Project Manager would like to schedule a Phone Interview, during the phone interview he told me about the company and about the position; the hours they work, about the commute to work, and that this was a Union position. He asked me a series of questions that were pretty standard; Are you eligible to work in the US? Do you have experience with digital logic, electronic motors, electronic test equipment? and so on and so. He then told me a little about how the next interview would, he told me that I would be taking a short 14 question test and when I got there and briefed me a little about what to expect: digital logic, paper troubleshooting, signal identification, a little ohms law (all questions are multiple choice). The next week I had an in person interview with the Site Manager. They seemed to not be interested in anything about me, only about my prior experience so the atmosphere was very nerve wracking and awkward. They went into further detail about the daily activities of the job and that there is lots of overtime to be had and explained that the work environment is dirty and you have to use port-a-potties ( just to verify that I was ok with these type of things). Then he asked me the same question that the P.M. asked me: Do you have experience with....... but they did not seem to interested in any type of explanation just yes or no. I explained to them that I had a Radar and electronic background and that I felt I would be more than capable to complete the job. This interview was maybe 20minutes long. When I got home the P.M. called me back and said they would like to offer me the job. One week later I had an offer letter from H.R.
