    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

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Everett, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Was recruited by the hiring manager who knew me from prior employment at Boeing. Was heavily recruited prior to the job posting. Expressed interest once more detail was available. Posting was August 2015. Onsite interview was November 2015. Offer was made and accepted late January 2016. Subsequent background check was completely mishandled by security and by the outsourced background check company. Information provided a mere 2 years prior was either lost or ignored. The background check company sent one set of emails which were responded to, promptly. But then Boeing Security sent out emails accusing me of not providing the information requested or otherwise ignoring the requests. Finally, Boeing Security started asking detailed questions about my technical experience. Only another person within my specialty could answer. The offer was rescinded due to misinformation and poor communication among the parties. Security later apologized but refused only modified the decision. Throughout I was either lied to by various Boeing employees or their outsource representatives. I had hoped the second time into Boeing would have been different. Many HR recruiters including the ones at my current employer have told me that it's a known fact that Boeing lies about much during the interview and onboarding in hopes that the employee takes the salary and is willing to deal with the downside. Unless you are fresh out of college, Boeing is not for you.

    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.

    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.
