    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Dallas, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1: Recruiter phone screen a few weeks after submitting my resume online. Brief questions about skills, projects and prior work experience listed on resume. Scheduled an on-site interview for a few weeks afterwards.

    2: On-site interview. Basic introduction to company structure and departments, then four 1:1 interviews which felt more like conversations than actual interviews. Received an offer several days later.

    Came in for an "interview day" with a number of other candidates. Interviewed across five different departments, each interview was one-on-one and about half an hour long. In total my visit lasted about four or five hours. Interviews were pretty casual, not too much pressure, and the interviewers themselves were quite conversational.

    It was relatively painless.I spoke to someone very friendly on the phone and enjoyed the conversation immensely. I was able to ask questions about the interviewer's experiences with the company as well.

    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tewksbury, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Went to a university career fair, and the recruiter sent my resume to a Raytheon engineer. One week later, HR emailed me asking to apply to the job requisition so that they could set up an interview. I ended up interviewing with three managers from one department, and didn't hear back for another four weeks. I had to email the recruiter, after which I was assigned another interview with another manager. One week later, I received an email for an onsite interview and tour. The following week, I was asked to present my transcript via email, and two weeks later, I received the rejection letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Andover, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first step was a phone interview with two 30-min interviews with different departments. Asked mostly technical questions.

    The onsite was from 8:00-1:00PM where they first talked more about the company and what it does. Then the rest of the time is spent talking to different departments and people. They mostly asked about your past projects and experience to see where you would fit in

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had an offer from the facility in San Diego. They offered me so low offer that I can't even consider at all. So, I declined it. From my personal experience, I felt the company or the site seems to be interested in bringing engineers with very low salary. The recruiter and HR person wasn't exited to make an offer. I didn't feel they were confident about their offer.
