    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (El Segundo, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was a first-round interview for a Manufacturing Engineer position for Boeing Space Systems in Los Angeles, CA.

    It was a typical STAR interview: behavioral questions, questions on work conflict/resolution, and work ethics. Conducted by 2 senior engineers and lasted roughly 40 minutes. They then asked me about my skills, educational background, and relevant project experience.

    The interview was very stiff and formal; I could tell that they were trying not to "get to know me", even though one of the interviewers (a senior engineer) was very friendly and chatty in a 1:1 environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you had a conflict. How did you resolve the conflict and what were the steps you took to reach a resolution?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through Boeing career site, contacted within 2 weeks to fill out additional information. Eventually scheduled an interview date. I was flown to Seattle and shuttled (along with 8 other people all applying for same position) to interview site. Career fair setting. They call your name when they are ready to interview you.
    It was noisy during interview. (25-50 other people all interviewing makes a bit of white noise)
    Interviewed by two managers from different engineering disciplines.
    Asked the standard STAR questions.
    I was caught off guard as the final questions they asked were all VERY similar in nature and I had to try and come up with a different story to say almost the same exact answer. They were very patient and even suggested ideas for me to draw upon.

    I felt confident as I touched upon every requirement of the job description in my answers.

    Contacted within 3 business days with an offer.

    Background check in progress.

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate. They surpassed my salary expectations.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview

    Interested and informed interviewers. Job fair setting. Very calm and mellow setting. Not rushed or had feeling of being just another one in line. Hiring was a bit more obscure; all done on-line. Human resources very helpful although also very compartmentalized. You will need patience as every one thing is handled by another person.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation not possible for me.
