Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Boeing in April 2017.

Interview

The interview was straightforward and simple. A 3-person panel asked 5 questions based around the STAR method. Everyone was very friendly and helpful when I asked them questions. I was able to relate to an interviewer since they used to live where I grew up, which made the process much easier.

    The interview consisted of personal questions and one technical question. Their questions consisted of what I was interested in and what type of work I would like to do. The last question they asked me was about G force. A few days after the interview I received a call stating that they would like to hire me over the summer at 30/hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boeing in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was based on STAR. These were not hardball questions, and I was not asked to demonstrate a skill. I was asked questions based on scenarios, questions revolving around clarifying experience listed in my resume, etc. They also encouraged me to ask them questions during the interview. It was a phone interview with about 5 others on the line, however the technical lead of the team I was interviewing for asked most of the questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was six STAR questions asked by a three person panel. They were very stiff, didn't take many notes and I felt very awkward. I found out after the fact that they were interviewing me for an analyst position, not an engineering position as HR alluded to, not sure what happened.

    Interview

    I applied online in October 2014 and was invited in for an interview a couple of weeks thereafter. The interview was STAR formatted. Two people (a hiring manager and a team leader) were involved in the interview, which was very comfortable and informal in nature. Overall, a great experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boeing (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The first call was from HR to setup an interview directly with the hiring manager. The actual interview call was fairly laid back as they listened to experience and previous duties. There was no standard template they followed (what are your strengths, weaknesses, etc). It was all to the point of the particular position. The in person interview was casual as well with questions about my past experience but with a little more detail. After that I was given a tour of the area I would be working.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really, I thought was too tough. All though I have been in interviews and asked technical textbook questions which hardly anyone uses outside of an advanced college engineering course.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Have a number in mind, but know that they are likely to hold on to your initial salary asking in the form you filled out when you first applied. Even if after the interview the job is more demanding then the requisition states. The problem is the HR is virtual in another state so they are not motivated to negotiate much on behalf of the hiring manager if your over their offer.
