Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in December 2014.

Interview

In-person interview. Boeing follows a very specific interview format across all positions: They will ask you to describe an experience where you responded to a certain situation and what happened. They will expect the candidate to first describe the situation, then the actions that you (the candidate) took, and what happened as a result of your actions. The hiring managers will be looking to see that you have clearly addressed each of these points and in this order. It is helpful to think of some experiences in advance that showcase several of your skills. Practice describing the stories in the exact format expected (described above)

Interview Questions

  • Describe a situation in where you had to coordinate with several different groups in order to solve a problem and meet a deadline.   Answer Question

    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.

    Average Interview

    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. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (El Segundo, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Typical star interview questions. Nothing wrong with how they interview, it’s how they treat interviewees they have no real intention to hire. I got an interview and even a plant tour, but heard absolutely nothing after that until I searched out the hiring manager’s information from social network sources. After 4 months of waiting I get the run around “we haven’t made a decision.” If it takes this long to hire a new engineer or if you would prefer to hurt relationship with future employees I can imagine why Spacex is taking over aerospace. Doesn’t even seem like a good place for new graduates too because they will waste your time. Boeing is a large company, their talent pool is large and they don’t care about the individual. So go ahead work for Boeing, but hope that you aren’t another candidate used to meet their interview quota.
