Principal Systems Engineer Interview

Principal Systems Engineer
Aurora, CO

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Raytheon in October 2011.

Interview Details – Without contacts on the inside, it would have been difficult to get hired. I knew people that understood my skills and qualifications before I walked in. I went to a job fair and ran into 4 people I knew while waiting for my interview. Whether this helped my hiring prospects or just my confidence, it did help.

Interview Question – how well do you handle stress on the job?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation on PTO, just salary
