Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in July 2017.

Interview

The hiring event was at the Marriot, and the HR folks were over the top professional and courteous. However, meeting and talking with the engineering leads and managers revealed a nasty culture of insecure jerks who play games and are less than professional. One of them tried playing "Stump the Chump" in his quest to get me to say the exact thing he had on his mind. Except he was wrong, and he lost badly. He was so far out of his element of expertise, and he had no idea that the very topic he was trying to mock me with was the very one I have a US patent in.....So Raytheon used to be known as the employer of complete jerks for managers and little backstabbing insecure small minded people as minions. Not much has changed.

Interview Questions

  • I am your manager, and I disagree with you. How are you going to change my mind?

    You don't know what the problem is, but how would you fix it?

    Since we only work with rockets here, how will your previous experience help you function? (note, my experience was a lot wider and varied than just rockets, so the question was more of an insult than a question) Anyone with experience in anything would have no trouble making useful engineer decisions in a rocket manufacturing role. It's not rocket science after all..... it's simple assembly and tooling and testing

    How have you dealt with a coworker you don't agree with? (Ironic this question got asked, because the 3 interviewers seemed to have no idea how to even ask normal questions without being unpleasant and generally negative. They constantly rolled eyes, lied, gave PC answers-more lying, and emitted a body language that said they were miserable interacting with real people who have real skills and experience.)   1 Answer

    I am currently living in Tucson and looking to relocate out. I had a phone interview for a position more than 1,000 miles away, but they spent 10 of our 30 minutes pressuring me to apply to RMS in Tucson. Why even call me?

    It is a government contracting job, so it can be quite extensive. But the interview process is doable and can be easy. There were about 3 interviews for this job.

    Received a call from HR to come in for an interview. The interview was with a number of other candidates. They discussed their products and then split us into one-on-one interviews with different managers. Interview consisted of typical behavioral questions as well as discussion of projects from resume. Overall the process was simple and a good experience.

    Interview

    Interview is a formality. Company is desperate to fill vacancies. Lots of turnover. They will try to make you mad to see how much you will put up with. They will basically insult you to see if you really need the job. The job is demeaning so they make sure any candidates are desperate for a job.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was all done via phone. It was about 45 minutes long and there was two interviewers on the phone at the same time. One was with human resources and the other was a lab manager. The phone interview was fairly simple with mainly behavioral questions and demonstrative/ scenario questions, with few technical questions.
