    Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Referred by an employee for a new role in development and was contacted by a corporate recruiter who did an initial phone screen which lasted about 30 minutes. Questions included strong probe on my salary requirements and explaining the job had a VP title with Director level pay which did not make the role as attractive. Recruiter then sent the job description a few days later and was a bit frantic to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager and HR which was done within a few days.

    Sixty minute phone interview with the hiring manager was a bit one sided, acronym filled and difficult to get a word in edge wise but I was able to ask some questions which were answered tersely and with limited detail. HR person was silent and didn’t ask any questions or participate in the discussion. An hour after the call the recruiter requested email feedback on how it went and I provided my input noting I was interested to continue the discussion. That was the last I have heard from the organization, a follow-up email and phone call to the recruiter went unacknowledged as well as an email to the hiring manager. I found this very unprofessional, especially for a VP level position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by Pamela to set up a phone interview with one of the engineers. Afterward, was flown out to Tucson for a 3-day stay. I am fresh out of graduate school and it was my first in-person interview. Be sure to arrive more than 40 minutes early as the registration takes awhile especially with a line. There is also a severe parking shortage so you need to potentially park a long way away from the building; this is the main reason for getting there so early. The situation is terrible and it was the reason why I was late. Aside from that, the interview consisted of meeting with a manager first(which I was late to) and then two employees who evaluated my personality. After that was a technical interview from two other employees and then lunch with still another employee. Afterward, I met with another manager who basically explained the company with many acronyms and was difficult to connect with. He didn't seem to want to be there. Aside from the last manager "interview", the process was smooth. The work there seemed really interesting but sadly I was not selected; I wasn't too sold on Tucson though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    One-on-one interview with the VP. Informal and conversational style that allows the applicant to get a feel for the position as well as the prospective boss. HR does a good job setting everything up and seems very responsive, but it appears to be a deliberately slow process.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Was flown out for an interview in Tucson AZ for a large hiring event. We were given a tour pf the facility and had a networking event. Stayed a total of 3 days. Final day was the interview. Interviewed for multiple positions. Was asked to give descriptions of past work and projects. Behavioral questions were also asked. No coding or whiteboarding. Very laid back. Was given an offer for all jobs I applied for related to software about 3 hours after leaving the interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Short and straightforward. Talked with 2 senior principal engineers. Lunch and short tour. Received an offer within 10 days. Make sure you don't over convey your abilities because I see others that were sent out to the door for that particular reason.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Raytheon (Aurora, CO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a professional open house. They saw my resume, liked what they saw, and proceeded to sell me on Raytheon and extended an offer. They were nice and friendly. If you fit the position they most likely will extend an offer.
