Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Huntsville, AL
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Huntsville, AL).

Interview

Boeing's interview process is very rigorous and very structured. You must be prepared going into it but you never know what kind of questions they're going to ask you. You must form your response using SAR, that is explain the SITUATION, discuss the ACTION that YOU took, and provide the RESULTS of your actions to that situation. And you want to heavily weight your responses on the RESULT portion of your responses. You will be in front of a panel, it's very nerve wracking. Bring a pad of paper and pen, take your time, and form your responses before you respond. Bring extra copies of your resume as well.

Interview Questions

  • They ask things like tell me about a time when you had to work with a difficult personality and how you handled that situation. Or they'll ask something like tell me about a time you were working on a project with a team and you encountered a disagreement with a team member, how did you resolve your problem? stuff like that.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview

    It was an over the phone behavioral interview that lasted about 25 to 30 minutes, followed by open questions at the end. The interview began discussing my experience listed on my resume, followed by general behavioral questions. The questions followed the STAR interview model, asking me to give examples of times I have exhibited certain qualities or dealt with situations. Most questions were centered around leadership, initiative, and conflict resolution.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to deal with conflict while working in a group setting. How did you resolve that conflict?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview

    I met the hiring manager at a career fair. The hiring manager reached out to me via email, and we scheduled a date for me to do a technical screening. It was the first time I had to code in front of another engineer, so the pressure got to me. Looking back at it, it was an easy question. Lessons learned: just relax and you'll be fine.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked be basic Java knowledge and questions related to multi-threaded programming.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boeing in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a email requesting a phone screen. Unfortunately I was not suited for the position and couldn't answer some of the basic questions that the interviewer asked for. In hindsight I should have studied up on the topics listed in the job description. It would have been a fairly simple screening had I done some basic reading.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Silly interviews, nothing to do with the candidate ability to do the job. They do not hire the best capable people. They hire the best candidates from a very small pool and do not question why it is so small. The job postings do not reflect the company's real need. I can only imagine that this is going on for 30 or more years experiencing the resulting culture. Damage has already been done.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a series of questions that were created by the manager.   1 Answer

But generally speaking they have a list of questions that relate to the position that seem to be taken from some database and they ask you these questions and write down notes based on your response
