Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in July 2015.

Interview

Applied online, several weeks later was contacted by a Talent Acquisition specialist via phone. They then put me in contact with several groups interested in hiring similar positions at a couple different sites. Did phone interview with a group of hiring managers, within same organization. Was further interviewed via phone by a senior engineering manager, who then recommended me for an onsite interview. They flew me out to the site where I also interviewed with 4 hiring managers and/or technical leads, and also had lunch with a senior engineer. I had a good sense an offer would be extended by the end of the day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Woburn, MA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process happened very quickly. I was called for an interview on Tuesday and the interview took place on Thursday of that week. The invited approximately 5 other candidates. Food was put out, an overview of the company was given, then we broke off and had 1-on-1 interviews. Most people had 2-3 interviews. It lasted for approximately 2 hours. Decisions were made by Tuesday of the next week. The entire hiring process took about a month. It was a little longer than expected as they were sometimes slow to get back to me. Overall though, it was a good Interview and Hiring experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewers all asked what I considered to be fairly standard interview questions. It felt more of a personality interview than a technical one. All three interviews obviously asked me about my technical background and problem solving abilities but for the majority of the interviews they wanted to know about what type of person I am. The teams appeared to be very strong and most likely wanted the candidate to be a good personalty fit as well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was negotiable but they remained fairly fixed in terms of their starting offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is straight forward. You interview with serveral managers and group members in a series of scheduled interviews. They give you background info on the company. there were dinner interviews and lunch interviews. Overall very positive process. They gave us a schedule of our interviews. They allowed us to visit other departments and schedule interviews with them as well. We met several HR reresentatives as well as realtors from various compnaies who showed us arround and told us about the area.

    Negotiation

    The offer an initial ow offer. I refused it. They raised it up several thousand. I accepted. I should have asked for more money. They completer relocate you and your personal items including your car. This is a hassel free process for the most part. The new hire orientation can be difficult though.

There was 4 managers on the phone, one would be the manager that I would work for if I got the job. Each manager had questions in there area, some very open, some very to the point.
