    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. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    Three people, mostly behavioral questions. Followed a fairly typical format, as it started with introductions, then they asked me to walk them through my resume. After that, they asked me a few questions of the "explain a challenge you've had with someone on your team and how you resolved it" variety. Finally, I asked a few questions, and then I left.

    Financial Analyst II Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted resume on line, got call back within days, had a phone interview in another day and was invited to a hiring event. The entire process took less than two weeks. The hiring event consisted of a mixer to talk to prospective employer in a non threatening setting. Also visited the plant site. The main event was the interview with a group of hiring managers. This was the most uncomfortable situation, there were multiple positions interviewing for, there was a place set up for potential candidates, and when it was time for interviews to start, managers would come to the staging area and yell out candidate's name... this felt like cattle calling.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter emailed me and had me contact their travel company. They flew me to Tucson, AZ, put me up at a resort and gave me a rental car. They send out an email 1 week prior with study materials for a test. When I arrived, there were 10 other people testing for various jobs. I took the test and left. About an hour later I got a call saying I didn't pass all the categories. (7 tests, 114 questions total). I've been working on electronics with the Department of Defense for 3 years now and have more experience beforehand and I'd rate the test as rather hard. Some stuff I've never heard of like actual designing of circuit boards.
