    The process took a dayinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    On campus interview with a current ldp member. Followed by a full day interview at the bd headquarters in DC. You can expect a networking dinner the night prior, which is more of an informal interview. The actual interview day involves three one on one interviews, followed by a case study and presentation.

    Interview

    An interesting interview. I was given a walk through the facility by the group manager first. The folks that interviewed me were very friendly and asked me questions relating my past experience. The group provided me with a brief description of the project they were working on and described each of their roles within the group. Finally, we talked about how my past experience could complement the group's skills.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Had interview on campus at my college. Questions were pretty standard no technical questions for the first interview. Interviewers were nice except they talked for a long time which cut into my answers.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call about 2 weeks later from a Hiring Manager. I had the phone screen with him. He asked about my experience, and pretty much went over my resume. He asked me if I was willing to travel, and told me that I would get a call to schedule an interview. I got an email a week later providing dates where the other hiring manager was available and I had my interview with him and another person through the phone. They asked me about my courses in school and job experience. No technical questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in late November 2014. When my resume finally hit a desk I was called right away. We spoke for about half and hour, and he made me feel like I practically had the job. I had my flight itinerary in a couple days and was there within 10 days after.

    Interview was grueling, Four sets of two on one or one on one interviews over six hours. Lunch with two young professional women "like me". The man on the phone was seen for less than 5 minutes. I was completely blind.

    Sent thank you's the next day and a follow up a week and a half later. I was told at the interview there were several openings. My e-mail was answered with "Sorry I didn't get back to you. No jobs are available to someone like you". Since the interview every application I have sent to Raytheon has been bounced back saying I am not good enough without even a glance (not exaggerating).

    Interview Questions

    • Almost solely asked about "group work" and things I did for the government previously.   1 Answer
    • I was repeatedly asked if I liked the city. Apparently, no one wants to live there. I was excited; but, when I got to Tucson there was something off. Perhaps the fact is that it was surrounded with military, or all the hippies :) The dangerous wildlife and proximity to the border were intimidating even when I am from the desert. Everyone should check out the area as much as possible even on the internet before flying there...to a hotel with no bathtub. That was a killer!!!   Answer Question
