Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

Interview

Several behavioral questions, mostly focused on how I worked in teams with others and projects I'd worked on. The interview took an hour or so and there was time at the end for lots of questions about the position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview

    Went through 2 rounds of phone interviews with Boeing Analytics. The recruiter was very nice, but incredibly disorganized. With every email or phone discussion, I had to remind her who I was and which position I was applying for. Finally, I got in touch with the hiring manager, and had a behavioral interview, followed by a technical phone interview a few days later. The recruiter said she'd follow-up within two weeks. After two and a half weeks, I called the recruiter only to find out that they were no longer hiring for the position due to a government contractor hiring freeze.

    Two months later, I applied and got in touch with a recruiter for another position. The recruiter rescheduled phone interviews twice(the day of the interview for both). Upon the third rescheduling, I opted to pull myself out of contention for the position and look elsewhere.

    Maybe these two experiences are unique, and I acknowledge that a large company like this can have a broad range of recruiters, but I've never experienced such a lack of professionalism with recruiters before, with any other company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boeing in September 2017.

    Interview

    There was a panel of 3 people who alternated asking questions. First they read instructions about how to answer the questions, then asked me what experiences qualified me for the position, and then they transitioned into the scripted questions. It took 45 min. They took notes in 3 columns: situation, action, result (not exactly the STAR method but close).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing in January 2017.

    Interview

    They ask you 5 questions for a phone interview only, before they hire you. Only behavioral questions, nothing technical. A couple people talk to you on the phone and just write down your answers to pass them on to the next step.

    • Tell me about a time you worked with people who have a diverse background.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boeing (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Roundtable setting, with typical "Tell me about yourself" and STAR-related questions. Interview was not technical and rather focused on behavior and personality traits. I did not find the interview particularly difficult, though I should have prepared better for the STAR questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boeing (Albany, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got the interview by going to the career fair and talking to one of the technical experts there representing the company. They liked me enough and called me back for an interview the next day.

    The interview it self was very structured. There were three people interviewing me. We started out with a brief history of myself, then we went into the questions.

    They asked 3 questions, all of which they wanted to be answered in the STAR format. While I was answering the questions the three people from the company were grading my responses. After the interview they tallied the grades. I didn't have the highest score, so I didn't get the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boeing (Ames, IA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was a behavioral interview following a career fair. Consisted of 3 engineers asking a series of pre-planned questions, along with any follow ups that they thought of. Lasted approximately one hour. Questions were fairly standard behavioral ones, mostly focusing on positive outcomes rather than those that are of the "describe a difficult situation you had in a group and what steps you took to overcome it."
