    DSP Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was just one phone call, held directly with a DSP engineer who had the technical background. Actual interview was fairly easy, wasn't asked to program. Didn't get the offer because although I got every question right and communicated effectively, I haven't taken a single signal processing class yet.

    • What are the different programming interfaces that you use, and which one do you prefer more?   Answer Question

    Test & Validation Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (El Segundo, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Total Joke. Arrived early and notice another candidate in the lobby. Thought he was interviewing for another position. Surprise! The interviewer came out and lead us both down the hall all the while mumbling about other interviews he either had or was about to perform. I was totally shocked and couldn't believe the lack of professionalism. I did not do well in the interview--was shaken by the interviewer's lack of respect. If this is what Raytheon is about --- NO THANKS !

    Interview Questions

    • Simple questions-- about what I did and what SW that I used.   1 Answer
