Principal Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Linthicum, MD

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Raytheon in April 2009.

Interview Details

Application via website with resume required to get things started. After putting in the application, it took a while to get the initial interview scheduled.

The interview process was informal, with a scheduled time to arrive, but the various people to speak with did not seem to be scheduled in advance beyond the HR team. It was a little chaotic. I was expected to fill out another set of application papers at the interview. Be prepared with dates, addresses, and details of education, past jobs and references.

Negotiation Details
Negotiation was very informal. It was done via email and phone calls with the talent acquisition representative. The company is willing to negotiate on weeks of vacation, and I was able to negotiate starting salary based on a bonus and education reimbursement that I would lose with my current employer if I left before the next Spring.

Once the details were worked out, the company still took two weeks to get the formal offer out in the mail. I was surprised at how long the entire negotiation took.

    You are negotiating with someone you will never meet, some HR person in a remote office. I got an offer of a cash bonus the second I mentioned that I would be forgoing a bonus at my previous company.
