    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I 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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (El Segundo, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by two people at the El Segundo location. Took about 1 hour in full. Very professional but also very relaxed environment. First half is just a run through of my resume and second half were mostly situational/behavioral questions. I think mostly they wanted to verify I had experience and skills for the position and also find someone they could "vibe" with on a daily basis and count on to bring value to the team.
