    Interview

    Phone interview, STAR based questions. Very simple to be prepared for these questions and at least have an idea of what to say if asked. Examples all over the internet to understand them better. I did not receive an offer after the interview and the process took over a month before I knew anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview

    Boeing typically will only do one interview (a panel of 3-4 people) for all positions - 6-8 questions - and then make their decision. Very odd. Hard to fully gauge a person in only 6-8 questions. Questions are behavioral ("tell me about a time you...").

    Background check takes a while - not because it's overly thorough, but because they've outsourced the process and it can take a week before your check is started (this is AFTER they've made an offer). So be cautious about putting in notice as soon as you get your offer - wait until the background has been cleared (that should be the case no matter where you're applying).

    Negotations are essentially non-existent. Boeing bases your offer on your years of experience and education/certifications and then bases how much they'll offer you based on how much they pay for that combination. As a result, I received an offer for a position I had applied to a couple of years go that was for less than I was making at that time (I turned that one down after hitting a brick wall in attempting to negotiate for a higher amount). So don't assume they'll offer you 10% above where you are now to entice you to join. If it would take more than they'd pay for your combination experience/skills, they'll just go to the next candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were out of the ordinary. Questions are based on the competencies listed in the job descriptions, where they are looking for you to be clear in your examples listing a Situation, Action you took, and the Result/Outcome.

      Two quesitons that typically make it into every interview (based on others I had, as well as others I sat on since joining):
      1) Tell us about your education and experience that prepared you for this position
      2) Usually a diversity-related question (working on a diverse team, needed to gain consensus from a diverse team, etc)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Boeing does little to no negotiating. If you do get slightly higher pay than they originally wanted to pay you, you'll get smaller raises over the coming years - as your pay is based on your compensation ratio for your level based on your years of experience (i.e. age). There isn't much differentiation between high performers and low performers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    You must dress well and follow their model for answering questions. I was interviewed by two old dudes. It was a giant auditorium with cubicles everywhere. I went in and they closed the curtain and asked 5 questions if I recall. They'll ask questions and write it all down as it comes out of your mouth. It's been a while but they're generic questions, like describe a time when you did something that wasn't popular but you did it anyways and what happened. Etc

    Interview Questions

    • I think it was, give me a time when you were asked to do something that you knew wasn't the best decision and you took a different approach.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Renton, WA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I attended a career fair and there I met with a number of Boeing recruiters and hiring managers. They recommended me for a Panel Interview on the spot and it was scheduled the very next day. The interview was a panel setup of 4 and took it approximately an hour in time. The questions asked focused on your previous accomplishments and the steps taken to achieve them. They also asked behavioral questions as to how you would approach work related situacions that were specific to the position. They were all very welcoming and nice but it was fairly intimidating experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked questions on how you achieved work related successes.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate as they will be increasing my salary in 3 months time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for the position end of October, but didn't hear back until early January, due to hiring freezes close to the end of the holiday break. I was contacted by the hiring manager who sent me all the information via email, which included the STAR format interview questions. For anyone that is interviewing with Boeing, it is always very beneficial to study STAR related format questions and then go through the process of answering them yourself to be prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions are behavioral based; i.e., tell me about a time when you dealt with a difficult customer, what did you to resolve the issue, tell me the steps taken.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I countered but they didn't budge.
