    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Raytheon in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Shortly after I applied through the employee referral process I was contacted by a recruiter. I was interviewed for a position that I did not initially apply for so the phone call was basically to gauge my interest in the position, this call lasted roughly 15 minutes and I was offered a chance to come onsite for a hiring event and interview. I flew to the campus and was taken out to dinner the first night by the Engineering HR group. This gave all the candidates to ask questions about the company. The next day I was put through 3 different sets of interviews. The interviews were made up of 3-4 different people with varying backgrounds. The next day I received an offer for the position that I interviewed for.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions asked were very basic. Mostly asking about my role on various team projects and my internships. Nothing out of the ordinary, very easy technical questions about the systems engineering process.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, generous offer as well as a relocation package

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Raytheon in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with four managers. Mostly each interview was me repeating my experience and then them asking "why do you want to work at Raytheon?". Just be ready to answer that one well.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpectedly, a manager asked, "what's a difficult problem you solved." I gave an pretty lackluster response. I suppose he was just looking for evidence of enthusiasm and critical thinking on my part. Got the job done.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Raytheon in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The person that interviewed me was 2 hours late to my interview, which turned out to be a good day for this individuals punctuality. I should have seen this as a warning sign, but I didnt want to see it. I was asked 3 poorly crafted questions and on the way out was told i would receive a written offer within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • None, the questions were weak and poorly framed. The person who interviewed me had no business interviewing people.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The only thing I believe you could negotiate was salary and at the time I didnt negotiate as I was happy to have the opportunity.

    Systems Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Raytheon in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited out of college. An interviewer came to my college and had scheduled interviews set up by the college of engineering. The interview took about 30 minutes. After this, I received an invitation for a recruiting weekend in Tucson. They flew me down, rented me a car, and put me in a very nice resort, along with over a hundred other soon-to-be college grads. We got a site tour, a few nice meals, and a morning of interviews with various departments.

    Unfortunately, I was not mapped into the correct departments and had to request an interview with the department that ultimately hired me. Each interview was approximately 20 minutes, focusing on the work I had done in college and my area of expertise. Interviews as this level focused on technical expertise rather than obscure psychological questions.

    It is important to note that after being hired, there is a lengthy and very in-depth application process for a DOD security clearance. This process goes into your past 5 to 7 years, depending on the level of clearance required. Applicants are required to list places they have lived, as well as individuals they have known and their contact information. It speeds the process considerably to have this information available beforehand.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't recall anything particularly difficult. However, they did ask me about non-linear control systems, a topic I had not yet studied.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As their offer was beyond what I was expecting, I did not negotiate. However, a friend of mine successfully negotiated an additional 2k by simply requesting it and emphasizing his expertise in the field.
