    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    A HR will call you to schedule phone interview. If you pass phone interview, you will get invited by another HR who will ask you to go a Hiring event at JW Marriott. Go there, you will get security debriefing, fingerprinted, etc. The first day is an 8 hour event. You will plant tour for about 3 hours, assuming proven US Citizenship. and the last 2 hours is a networking session that is a complete waste of time unless you are lucky to catch the other department heads in a good mood. You will be exhausted by the first day. And you may leave earlier than the end of the networking session. Now if you make it to the interview day, You better hope you don't get the earliest time after breakfast. Unfortunately for me this was the case. You can get more than 1 interviews but like i said it's a crap shoot on the night for networking/reception.

    Another thing I should mention is, If you already have clearance your in good shape but it doesn't guarantee your interview to go smoothly.

    By the way interview is primarily behavioral for EE level 1. No Technical Questions will be asked.

    FLDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Waltham, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career services website and was invited to interview on campus. It was a 1-on-1 interview that lasted about 45 minutes. The questions were all just standard behavioral ones, nothing difficult. I received a call a day or two later letting me know I had been selected for a final round interview. There was a dinner reception and then you either interviewed the next day or the day after that. The final round interview consisted of four 30 minute interviews, two with finance managers and two with the people who run the program. Again, just standard behavioral questions for the most part. They got back to candidates within a few business days to let us know if we had gotten an offer.

    If you plan on applying for this position, just be aware that you'll be competing for spots with people who have already interned there. It seemed like most of the current FLDPs had interned there previously, so I really felt like I was at a disadvantage having not done so.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral questions plus some questions about the company and the industry. Definitely know why you want to work at Raytheon and why that specific program.   2 Answers

    Application

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

If traveling from out of town, Raytheon covers travel, lodging, food, and any taxi services used. First day was a security briefing that including fingerprinting and citizenship approval, lunch, a limited tour of the Raytheon campus, and a networking event with heavy hors d'oeuvres. The second day was breakfast and interviews started at 8 am sharp. The interview was with two managers from the department and was about 50 minutes long with the last 10 dedicated to my questions for them. The questions ranged from situational, to behavioral, and questions about my past like internships, work experience, and how those related or have helped grow professionally. Received a decision email the same day.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.

Stable company that provides a stable job. Above average market rate pay. People are generally very nice. In my opinion, this can be a great place to work for someone who is an average performance employee who is fine just clocking in and out and enjoys following clearly defined processes. Even as an exempt employees you are still eligible for overtime if your manager approves it ahead of time. They really do a great job during the recruitment process to impress you to come to Tucson.” – Full Review
