I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2016.

Interview

There was a two manager panel that asked a series of situational/behavioral questions. Their questions focused on leadership experience, working in teams, and negotiation. After the series of behavioral questions, the interviewers asked questions regarding various items on my resume. Following the questions on my resume, they allowed me to ask questions about the position I was hoping to fill.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    They flew us out to Seattle. Interview lasted about 30-40 min. All questions were STAR based.

    I was extended an offer and I accepted. I have no criminal background but horrible credit. I'm a recent graduate, and my credit hasn't been a problem at other jobs I've held in the past.

    When I got the offer, I took my time deciding whether to leave my current company or not. I was very happy with it and even confided in my manger and asked what I should do. At the time, my company couldn't provide me with the same financial opportunity, so my manager was very happy to tell me to accept. I did, and I put my two weeks in and moved half way across the country to live with family and get closer to Boeing.

    Boeing dragged on the background check for three weeks..all while I was sitting at my parents house. Only to finally inform me that my bad credit would be a disqualification for the job. I'm stunned. I'm not sure what type of world we live in when a company can extend you an offer and then take it back. Lesson learned on my end, though. Best of luck to other applicants but I will never apply with Boeing again. Bad experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for this position but didn't hear anything for 2 months. Recruiter gauged my interest and decided to continue with a phone interview. 2 weeks passed before the interview. 2 managers were on the phone for a pretty standard behavioral interview. They wanted the usual STAR method in the answers. Another week or two and the recruiter asked if I'd be disappointing if they made their hiring decision without an in-person interview, I thought it was unorthodox, but I said I'd be fine with it. Another couple of weeks passed and I got a call with the offer.

    Interview

    The interview was standard and boring. They read off of a scenario sheet. Absolutely the opposite of personal. It was very hard to get a good read about what exactly you will be asked to do on the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Renton, WA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Interview was rather straight forward. They started with a phone interview as an initial screen and then an 'group' in person interview with 2 to 3 Boeing employees. They only ask 4 to 5 behavior questions and are expecting a STAR formatted responses.

    Their overall process from applying to offer can take a few months. Sometimes a lot longer to start if you are over around the Oct-Nov. They make offer to start you in January.
