I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ).

I had to pass a phone interview, and then was requested to attend the two day long hiring event. I had three interviews, two of the three were strictly behavioral questions with maybe one or two technical questions. The first interview was almost entirely technical questions. All of the members found out within 24 hours if they were going to be getting an offer or not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had two interviews for two different Electrical Engineering positions, but I'll review both interviews here for the sake of following the community guidelines.

    I applied Online, and within a couple of days, two hiring managers called me for a screening type phone interview; and at the end of each phone call, they both invited me to their Hiring Event in Tucson. They flew me in for the two day event, which consisted of informational presentations, a facilities tour, a networking event (that can be extremely beneficial if taken advantage of, as you could 'score' more interviews for the next day) and finally the interviews on the morning of the second day.

    My first interview was a panel interview with the Hiring Manager (Engineer) and another engineer from that department; fairly technical interview, since it was mainly an analog design position; very light on the behavioral side. Literally out of the 45 minutes allotted for the interview, like 30-35 were technical questions, which I personally didn't mind, since I genuinely love the topics covered; I wished the interview could have lasted longer though, since I only had the chance to very few questions.

    The second interview was another panel interview with the Department Head, the Hiring Manager (Engineer) and another senior engineer from the respective department of this interview; not a single technical question, the interview flowed like a regular conversation, which lasted for the allotted 45 mins.

    A good thing is that they let you know wether or not you're getting an offer on the very same day you interview.

    Interview

    The first half of the onsite interview was show and tell for the company.
