    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in State College, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (State College, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with the manager you'd be reporting to. Discuss typical things: skills, school work, the job. Lots of information pertaining to the specific position is classified, but that's expected with Security Clearance work. On-site, met with the manager from my phone interview, and two engineers one at a time. Asked basic questions about my resume and background. The entire process seemed to be based around making sure I wasn't bluffing about my resume and experience rather than burning my at the stake over textbook algorithm questions. Very relaxed and engaging. Everyone was very pleasant and down-to-earth about the recruiting process. Left a great impression of the type of people they hire.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tewksbury, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tewksbury, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straight forward with personality based questions. The only thing that was a bit nerve-racking at first was that it was a group of 5 people interviewing me at once but this turned out to be for the best because each of these people were from different branches of the company. They were all very nice and wanted to make sure they placed me in a position I would be happy with. Overall it was a great interview with very nice people.

    Interviews were pretty straightforward, people were very friendly, and everyone was accommodating to any needs and issues that occurred. They got back to me very quickly, within a few days, which was even faster than they said. It was overall a very positive experience for such a large company, and I did not feel lost in the size of it.
