    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Raytheon (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Simple, it was a transition from one contractor to another. There were no major hurdles to overcome. I knew I was getting the job. I did not have to prepare or do anything particularly special. The interviewers did not tell us what we were answering questions for or that we had to hurry and do the medical. They did not let us check on our current pay. That was a big hassle.

    Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon in June 2015.

    Interview

    Resume review followed by in person interview with individuals also on the phone. Raytheon did not update my status after the interview and I only found out I had been declined after I directly contacted HR for an update. As nearly as I can determine I spent too much effort explaining to Raytheon that I understood the business I was trying to enter and not enough time demonstrating to them that I had the appropriate management skills for the position (based on one telephone interviewer comment near the end of the interview). So how does one properly target responses when the person on the other end of the phone offers no feedback and you can't look them in the eye to see if you are off track?
