    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tempe, AZ).

    Interview

    I interviewed for Raytheon at an on-campus interview shortly before graduation. They used a classic, scripted "behavioral" interview style which is conducive to an awkward experience and accomplishes little more than measure the candidate's capacity to BS in my opinion. Horrible experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Colorado Springs, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad at all. The questions were fairly standard interview questions. My interviewer was cordial yet firm. I wish that the behavioral questions had been a little less personal and more focused on career ambitions. Overall, I had a pretty good experience interviewing with this company.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon in March 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening used a group notepad web application and consisted solely of technical programming questions dealing with algorithm construction.

    They prefer C++/C but will allow you to work in whatever language you feel you are best in.

    Total time was an hour and 15 minutes.

    The interviewers were patient and offered minimal guidance if stuck on a particular algorithm.

    Budget Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Raytheon (Waltham, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Chaotic. Got a call from a recruiter who cut me off mid-call; I had to call several times before I caught him. He then scheduled me to go in and talk to two people whose roles were not made clear. I met with the person currently covering the job in question. Towards the end of the interview, she informed me that the next person had written an email saying she wasn't coming in. No explanation, no further contact, nothing. Completely amateur and disrespectful process.

    Systems Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was easy. I was just caught off guard with the call. Wasn't prepared enough to make an impression I believe. They asked about my projects and if I was willing to relocate. There wasn't any tough question but they wanted to know if I can answer anything about block diagrams and PID controller if I were to be interviewed in-person. No technical questions on the phone interview. They told me to wait two weeks for another call to set-up an in-person interview but I never received it. It's been 4 weeks, and at this point, I am a bit discouraged. However, my online job submission still says "Submission Under Review". I will update if something comes up.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Plano, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I began by applying and being rejected. Then I got an email saying to apply for another job. I applied and they didn't get ahold of me until about 2 months later. A lady emailed me to do a phone interview. I did well on the phone interview and a few weeks later I went into an in-person interview. The whole process has been very laid back. I learned about the position and recited a few aspects about it to the hiring manager and they were impressed. So far I am waiting on an answer. They have mentioned having an answer 2 weeks after the In-Person but then said mid-next week I should have an answer.
