    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing in July 2015.

    Interview

    Submit application against a specific job requisition. Applicants will only be considered for that specific job. If selected for interview, notified. Interview may be by phone or in person. If you are not selected, you may never know. Boeing uses "structured interviews" which guarantee that employees are all interviewed the same; however, they may not really give the employees an opportunity to describe their suitability for the job.

    Interview

    Submitted Application, was contacted by 90 days after I submitted application. I was interviewed using a structured interview process. The applicant needs to talk about a situation, what I did and what was the outcome. They are looking specifically for this format. What they are looking for is: during the situation did you or your team see a need to improve upon the situation? If so, what did you do? Then the outcome, did you improve the situation by reducing a financial obligation to the company? Did you improve the situation by reducing steps it took to complete therefore you introduced a lean practice?

    Interview Questions

    • The diversity questions aren't usually about what you think it is: Gender, race, nationality. It can be about a different culture you came into or how people perceive differently because they were raised differently than you. Answers to the diversity are usually: I get along with anybody, I like all kinds of people from different races, genders and nationalities.
      Think outside the box and come up with an answer in how you might have encountered a different culture than your own and you worked with that person to come up with a compromise or a solution.  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Wasn't able to negotiate pay or time off. The package they offered was the package they offered

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boeing in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online, got an interview a week later. The interview was scheduled to last 45 minutes, but mine lasted about an hour and a half. I receive an offer call from my boss after 3 hours. An effective PM is one that shows very strong empathetic skill and strength/confidence in their ability to lead and get the job done.

    Remember, when you get an interview, they already think you're qualified. Make sure you are able to convey your social skills and passion for project management in your interview. It is by far one of the most difficult jobs to land due to the rare nature of someone who possesses strong social skill, technical prowess, and proven adaptability.

    Interview Questions

    • Make sure to display your personality up front. Do research on the company and think about why and how your skills can contribute to the company. This is true for any interview. STAR method questions are very straightforward. If you do your research, you may be able to predict a few questions they will ask. Be honest. I feel this advice was key to my success in getting an offer. Good luck!   1 Answer
