    Logistics Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Beach, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Beach, CA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Submitted an online application and also knew internal person who forwarded my resume to the Hiring Manager. Received a call from HR a few weeks later to set up an interview about a week out. Interview was first with the hiring manager then the team lead of the Program. Both were pretty relax, not all about the position. Wanted to get to know about me as well as my skills. Was a new hire out of college. Interview lasted about a hour. Left feeling confident that I got the position. Received a call maybe 2-3 weeks later from HR that they were offering me a position and salary which I accepted. Came in soon after to fill out paperwork and take a drug test. Started not too long after.

    Legal Counsel Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Not sure why but the Interview process moves very slowly, even when the job need is critical. Just be prepared to wait to hear each step of the way. Quality of internal HR is very inconsistent so speed of response may depend more on how much your potential boss is willing to push the system. General sense is they really do try to get a good fit and meet with or at least phone screen many people for each spot.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing actually. Very straightforward questions as to why was I interested in the position and what relevant experience did I have.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Best to negotiate as high as possible before accepting offer as it is much more difficult to get significant raises once employed. More flexibility in negotiating starting salary than expected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    If you know some one inside have them give you a referral prior to signing up on the web portal. Fine the job you are interested in on the web portal and let your contact know what you would like to do. If you cannot get a referral, apply on line and keep checking back to see the status. Remember to use the key words in your cover letter and resume that are in the rec. so the computer wont kick you out automatically.

    Interview Questions
    • I heard one manager ask an applicant to bring an analysis report to the interview. This analysis report was not to be real but must show all aspects of what needs to be included in a report.   Answer Question

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    It seems to take Raytheon for ever to go through resumes. If you want to work for them I recommend that you check back with them frequently as to the status of your application. It took approximately 5 weeks for my status to change from "Resume Submitted" to "Under Consideration" and then another 5-6 weeks for it to finally update to "No Longer Under Consideration".

    Interview Questions
    • After numerous application submittals I have still not been able to get an interview. I would love to be able to just get to that point so I can have the chance to see what questions they have. Hopefully I will get that chance in the future, but from my experience so far, I think it is very hard to get an interview with Raytheon and I am going to assume that you need to know someone who works there to even have a chance, and seeing that I don't know anyone who works there, I am about to give up.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was offered an HR interview during my university's campus career fair. I have only had an HR interview so far. After this, they assume you have applied online and ask you to forward them the job ids to pursue. They forward their reports to recruiters who contact you, if interested. Most likely, to be followed by a string of phone calls.

    Interview Questions
    • No question as such. I was asked all the standard ones like, 1: how would you react in a conflict? 2. How do you do in a team setting? etc   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call about two months later. Was asked basic questions to verify the information found on my resume. Also asked if there was anything else I would like to elaborate on and if I had any questions. Was told that my resume would be forwarded to the HR manager and to keep in mind that it was the holiday season so a bit of time may pass before I am reached again.

    Interview Questions
    • Everything was straightforward as it was only a phone interview; was only asked about information found on resume. One question that stuck out was "are you currently recruiting elsewhere?"   Answer Question
