    Business Development Program Interview

    Interview Details

    On campus interview with two campus recruiters. They asked mostly behavioral questions that were focused on past internship experiences. My interviewers did not ask anything about extracurricular activities. The interview was pretty relaxed and I had a lot of opportunity to talk about school projects and personal accomplishments.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Very standard interview process: First I was contacted by HR to setup a phone interview (teleconference) with site and staffing managers. They started off with the job description and followed up with personality questions. They also asked about specific experiences that directly related to the position - which were considerably more important. Lasted about 45 minutes. Followed up the next week and got the position.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical questions are very specific to the position (which you should be comfortable answering if you have experience).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and waited at least a month before hearing anything. Received an initial call from a software manager to gauge my interest in the position and perform the phone screen. He was very friendly and the phone screen looked for general programming experience and some basic VxWorks knowledge. About 2 hours after the phone screen, I received a call that they wanted to bring me in for an interview the next week. I was out of town so they gave me a number to call and set up travel arrangements - which was very quick and easy to use. The in-person interview consisted of about 3 45 minute 2 on 1 interview sessions. They again tested for basic programming and VxWorks knowledge. They had me talk a little about my previous experiences and things I learned. I felt they mostly were interested in my VxWorks skills and the personality fit. Everyone was very friendly throughout the day. I returned home and received a call within a few days informing me that they were putting together an offer and I would finish the process with HR.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    There is effective process in getting the application and location information to the potential candidate. However, with any large company it is possible to receive multiple sources that are seeking your application but is not located locally so it can be confusing about who you should actually rely on for contacting for final scheduling.

    You can only get a good interview if you have a good interviewer who is genuinely interested in asking questions that allow each party to exchange enough information that you can each discern if it a good fit.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Usually best to have an "in", be a fresh college grad, or be exactly what they're looking for as they usually hire according to premeditated criteria. Interview process may vary, but you'll definitely be meeting with at least 3 key players, either in a panel or separately.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. How do you feel about innovation?   View Answer

    I didn't negotiate. But I feel like there was minimal room to (at the time).
