    Interview

    I was contacted by HR about a week after I put in the application. The next day I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and two other employees. I was contacted shortly after the phone interview to come onsite the following week. I interviewed in a group panel. Everyone was very nice and friendly. I was contacted the next day for a few more questions and about two weeks later I was notified for a job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Forest, MS) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website. 3 weeks later, I was emailed by an HR representative about conducting a remote interview through a service called hireRight that would record my interview using preset questions. After this was submitted, another month passed for a total of 7 weeks before I was called by the hiring manager and invited for an onsite interview.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Forest, MS) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Classic 2 call system, interview was more like begging us to come here. However, the pay was very low...

    Then had a group on site interview and a few 1:1 interviews same day. It however was a bunch of lies to get is in the door. You could tell these folks were absolutely desperate to hire people. They pretty much showed me the money for a year and then it was time to go.

    The interviewers were clueless, and had no idea what the Kirchhoff law is... one of them didn't even know Ohms law! So the interview was a piece of cake! I could have said that a transistor radio is made using 5 transistors and a flux capacitor and I was in!

    Interview Questions

    • Can you use a network analyzer? a spectrum analyzer?
      How does a radio work?
      What does an antenna do?

    Negotiation

    Basically, I was offered 90k plus 30k relocation/bonus. So I knew after the year to stay not to pay any relocation benefits I was out. It was ok to make 110k that year.

    IPT Lead Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Forest, MS) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Standard hiring practices for defense industry.
    One full day interview with managers and co-workers.
    Interview was an organized mess.
    Dress nicely, get your running shoes and walk away... trust me RUN back to your car, and acknowledge it was a mistake coming all the way here. Or dare to go in for the interview and find out for yourself.
    When you walk in you will encounter a huge manufacturing facility. Everyone dressed up in ESD smocks, office area looks very run down, very old. People that work here are mostly out of shape, with bad eating habits. The work culture I was able to see during my interview was one of pointing fingers and not being their fault. So be aware of being the scape goat!

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Will you have a problem relocating to the Mississippi area?
      2. Well a lot of people have a hard time adjusting.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was good, they try to give you as much as they can in the relocation package. However, the salary negotiations are VERY WEAK! as they don't pay as much as they should.

    Other than that, the advice I would give is let CARTUS relocate you and schedule the move of your household goods. Raytheon then insures all your goods so if anything breaks! You get it 100% covered, no questions asked. They will try to force you to do it yourself but if anything breaks its on you.

    That is if you decide to take the Relocation cash... which was nice but takes away your freedom of leaving this place for a year. So be ready to feel like a slave for a year.
