    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Aurora, CO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for University Programs in July 2017 and interviewed at Raytheon in Aurora, Colorado. The process took about 2 months. I was contacted for a phone interview about a month after I applied, in which interviewers asked basic behavioral questions and tested basic knowledge on object-oriented programming principles. I was invited to an onsite interview afterwards, in which I talked to the same people from the phone. Questions were more or less the same, except more in depth. They asked me to write pseudo code for generating the nth prime number and calculating n factorial. They didn't care too much about finding the most optimal solution and mostly wanted to see how you think when you solve a problem. Overall, the interview was very easy, and the engineers I talked to were very friendly and polite. I was given an unofficial offer 2 days after my interview, followed by an official letter in the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • n factorial - what happens if you pass a negative number or max int into function?   Answer Question
    • nth prime number - generate, print, store n prime numbers   Answer Question
