    Career Fair-Various Engineering Positions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon (Richardson, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    This was a hiring event held on May 19th, 2016 in Richardson, TX. It seemed organized and efficient and the turn out was much more than recruiters had expected. The best part about such events is that an actual human being screens your resume and if it has any relevance only then you are invited to talk to a hiring manager on the table. They were very specific in what they were looking for.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon (Richardson, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I attended the career fair on May 19th. they collected everyone's resumes in the beginning. I guess the hiring managers were looking through the resumes to see if they matched any of the open positions. After an hour I was told they don't have any job for me and I left without participating in an interview.

    Entry Level Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon (Marlborough, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to schedule a phone interview 2 weeks later. I waited patiently in a quiet environment for my phone call on the scheduled time and day but I ended up waiting for longer than an hour. When I realized that they wouldn't call, I emailed the HR contact asking to reschedule. She apologized and said they would reschedule for later in the week. The next day, she told me that they would fly me out to the office in Massachusetts for an onsite interview. I agreed, traveled to the office the following week, and had an interview. I felt that the interview itself went well and I don't usually think that about most of my interviews. I waited for 2 months and I never heard back. I didn't bother to call for a follow up because I had accepted another offer from a different defense contractor.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly standard behavioral questions (strengths and weaknesses? favorite and least favorite classes?)
      They asked a lot of specific questions about my previous internships and my extracurricular activities.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Melbourne, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Extensive testing prior to interview. Cordial personal interview. The interview was informal. Several members of the company participated in the process. Each panel member engaged on a one to one basis. It would have been an enjoyable company to work for. At the time, I was severely traumatized by several family problems unrelated to work. And, as a result, was not immediately available to start. The interviewers were very empathetic. I believe they would make an offer if I could reapply.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you failed to accomplish your goals and what steps did you take to rectify the situation?

      Recite a sonnet describing how your personal objectives align with the corporate objectives of Raytheon.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad at all. The questions were fairly standard interview questions. My interviewer was cordial yet firm.

    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.
