    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Boeing (El Segundo, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Boeing's recruiting process is a complete joke, and a waste of time. I applied for a requisition months ago. I got a phone call setting up an interview about a month later. So I interviewed for this position (typical STAR structured question/answer session) over the phone and then a day later I get a call saying they want to give me an offer. Great! The recruiter said they needed to work out some details but I'd get an official offer soon. I wait a week, nothing. I email him and he just kept giving excuses every time I'd call or email him, saying the hiring managers were on vacation, they were at a job fair, they were still finishing up my offer, whatever. Another few weeks go by. I email again and get no response. Another few weeks pass... Then out of nowhere I get that typical form letter "Thank you for applying but we have decided to go with another candidate". What?! I try calling the recruiter and find out he quit (or got fired) weeks ago! The new recruiter couldn't give me a straight answer, and after going back and forth again, the hiring manager finally contacted me and gave me some BS answer. What a complete joke of a company. Looking at other reviews, it seems like they enjoy wasting people's time just for the sake of filling their interview quotas.

    Interview

    Met with software focals on campus. Did typical STAR interview with 5 questions, responding with examples. Then taken on site to meet with a few different teams. This was less of an interview and more finding a good fit. Ranked teams and given offer from there.

    Interview

    I applied online. A few days later, I received an email and set up a phone interview time. I called a conference number and two men were waiting for me. They introduced themselves and their role at Boeing. Then they asked about my background, the software development life cycle, and three questions about times I had trouble working in groups. They took my questions and that was the end.

    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

    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.

    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.
