    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The opportunities and benefits are great. Most are willing to go the extra mile and help when you most need it.

    Cons

    The aerospace industry is very volatile, which is really no reflection on Boeing. But the instability can be a bit unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building quality products that protect our Soldiers.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    The first call was from HR to setup an interview directly with the hiring manager. The actual interview call was fairly laid back as they listened to experience and previous duties. There was no standard template they followed (what are your strengths, weaknesses, etc). It was all to the point of the particular position. The in person interview was casual as well with questions about my past experience but with a little more detail. After that I was given a tour of the area I would be working.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really, I thought was too tough. All though I have been in interviews and asked technical textbook questions which hardly anyone uses outside of an advanced college engineering course.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Have a number in mind, but know that they are likely to hold on to your initial salary asking in the form you filled out when you first applied. Even if after the interview the job is more demanding then the requisition states. The problem is the HR is virtual in another state so they are not motivated to negotiate much on behalf of the hiring manager if your over their offer.
