    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Boston, MA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I applied to a large pool of positions in the Greater Boston area in Electrical, Software, or Systems Engineering. After a few weeks I was invited to a two day "Hiring Invitational" in Boston which I think is Raytheons way of consolidating the recruiting process. If you're invited to this you are almost guaranteed a position.

    The first day is a welcome breakfast, followed by lunch and some presentations, a tour of the Andover manufacturing facility, and then a networking meet and greet with hiring managers and other employees.

    Second day is really only the morning where you will have your interviews with the directorates that want to talk to you. You may have one or two already scheduled for the morning but you can easily pick up additional interviews at the networking event the night before.

    After its all done you'll hear within a week about offer(s).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was invited to a 3-day hiring event in Tucson. The company flew me out there and paid for all of my expenses to get to the hotel where the interview was. The hotel I stayed at was amazing and beautiful. The whole experience was very eye-opening to what the company does. They are very invested in new talent and the interview is composed of a panel of 2-3 people from the department you applied to. The interview will be a whole day thing, each interview will take about an hour and depending on how many positions you applied to, you might be able to interview for all of the positions in one day if possible.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon in April 2011.

    Interview

    Not bad. I met a lot of the other workers I would work with after interviewing with the manager. They all had some say in the decision I think. People were mostly cool. Overall its not a bad company and they focus on trust and respect as a culture. They gave me a good relocation package of $50k!! If you have a good manager, you are golden. But there are some micromanagers and they ruin it.

    Contract Negotiator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Contacted via e-mail by a recruiter to set up phone interview, then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Brought in for a 2nd interview and first had a very thorough review of the benefits package, which was the first time that has ever happened for me. I really appreciated it. By the way, the offices are about what you would expect for a govt contract job shop... old, dull, no frills. Then, spent an hour interviewing with the Director of Contracts, who was a very impressive professional, would have loved to work for him. The next hour was spent with one of the Sr. Contract Managers, also a very professional individual, pleasure to interview with. However... the 2nd Sr. Contract Manager that I interviewed with made me decide that I would never work at this Raytheon office until her retires. Completely unprofessional, obviously hadn't read my resume at all, but that didn't stop him from insulting my experience (instead of asking me to tell him about it). Arrogant guy who was past his prime; I wouldn't hire him to work for me, let alone me work for him. Shame, because the rest of the people seemed like really competent professionals. That was last week, haven't heard about a selection yet. Don't care, better options out there. Update: Called me and asked me to move fwd, I declined.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon (Andover, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with the recruiter, followed by an intense 1.5 hour in-person interview with 4 Raytheon employees simultaneously (Contracts Director, Manager, Specialist, and Intern). The interview style was a barrage of questions, seeking to see how the interviewee works under stress.

    Contracts Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Boston, MA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Be prepared to wait, but once you are selected for an interview it's not that difficult. I was extremely prepared and talked for most of the interview. Prospective employers will be phone screened, then have a one on one interview with the hiring manager. I did not have a phone screen-- instead, I had my one on one discussion then had a group panel interview.
    The interview itself was great, but it took another couple of months to start once I was selected for the job.
