    Information Security Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    The process started with an HR rep who verified my education and clearance. I spoke with the hiring manager for about a half an hour. Since I had extensive experience and a MS in the field it was simple enough for him to see I could do the job, so it was mostly "preaching to the choir" about InfoSec.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    First met with recruiters at a career fair. Had a short 30 minute interview same day with one of the recruiters. After a few weeks, was invited to a two-day hiring event. The first day was tours of Raytheon facilities and a social mixer with different department heads and recruiters. The next day was designated solely for interviews. Met with different department recruiting teams composed of two or three members. Each interview was also fairly short, and was composed primarily of behavioral based questions and interests in the specific department. Received offer after about a week.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Raytheon in March 2015.

    Interview

    The day started at 8:30am with an hour long presentation of the company and the program. There were 9 people interviewing for 4 positions. For the next 3 hours, each hour a set of 3 people was taken for interviewing, while the rest of the candidates were left to keep themselves busy talking to former members of the rotational program. There were 3 interviews, one 1-on-1 and two 2-on-1, each 15min long. They asked standard interview questions and cared more about leadership roles than your actual skill as an engineer.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process started first with a screening from a recruiter. They do a quick 30 minute interview to find out a little bit about you such as your interests as well as verify what your wrote on your resume. However, no technical questions. New I did a Hireright interview, which is an only interview that ask more behavioral questions. It is online and you just record your responses on your computer through the hireright software. Once again this one is not technical and it is more to find out more about yourself. The last phone interview is with the hiring manager so you need to bring your A game and be ready for the technical questions. They are all basic concepts that you learned from college as long as you were paying attention. Just do not lie on your resume because they will find out.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your experience working in the lab? What experiments were you doing and what were you trying to measure? Also do you have any experience using the VNA to perform RF measurements? Explain.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I probably could negotiate, however, the amount they offered me was well beyond what I was expecting for my internship so I took what they offered. Remember, companies are making an investment in you so if you are someone they like they do what they can to keep you.
