Senior Engineer II Interview

Senior Engineer II

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Raytheon.

Interview Details – Getting a foot in the door can be tricky. It helps to get in straight from college or if you know someone. If you are going for a job that requires a security clearance, expect to eventually having to fill out a very long questionnaire (this may be done after you start working), drug test, background check, etc... Interview/hiring process took a LONG time. Be patient. I need special accommodations for voice recognition software and brother did that add to the time! But everyone is very professional and they did end up accommodating my needs. It takes doing to get in, but it is a good company.

Interview Question – I knew the folks I was interviewing with because I had worked with them previously, so my experience was likely not the usual. I was a known quantity.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate. I negotiated higher because of my previous experience.

Interview Details – There was only one in person interview where I competed against three other people on the same day.

Senior Principal Engineer Interview

Senior Principal Engineer

Interviewed at Raytheon

Interview Details – Many reqs are a waste of time. They already know who they want to hire. The company typically uses job requisitions to show that they are really looking for the most qualified. If they want you, they will ask easy questions. If not, impossible questions designed to make you fail the interview. HR looks for words in your resume that match the job req. HR is the first gate keeper. HR has no knowledge of engineering, yet they are the gate keepers.

Interview Question – Why do you want this position? What are your weaknesses? Give examples of solving problems.   Answer Question

Interview Details – The hiring process went great and the interview process also went well. It was very thorough.

IT LDP Candidate Interview

IT LDP Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Raytheon in March 2014.

Interview Details – you will get a call for a intial phone screen , just preliminaries to inform you about the program, then they will tell you they will call you a month and a half later to do another interview if you pass that they will invite you to a onsite behavioral interview at the head quarters in MA. Raytheon promotes diversity as they expressed but if you ask me that is a bunch of hogg wash, they talk a good game but dont practice it. i was the only minority there and i didnt fell welcome , i felt as if they was fulfilling a HR requirement to have a diverse canidate go through the interview process . Come on i can put two and two together and i know foul play when i see it im lived in the Great state of texas so go figure. However I was qualified and me being from a low tier school i out shine canidates that was from High ranking schools such as MIT and Purdue just to name a couple. If you are a determine bright minority or non minority and looking to get ahead in your career Avoid raytheon like the plague. During the process When i was interviewing at the head quarters HR ask me , so tell me about the great things your herd about us. I really want to say back in texas a friend of mine just won a law suit against your company for racial descrimination a year ago, that the great things i have herd, i dodnt now this situation until i was invited three days before my flight.

Interview Question – There isnt any it was behavioral, that why im sure it was more too the selection process.   Answer Question
