    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Woburn, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized and efficient. The in-person interview lasted 90 minutes. I felt very prepared for the interview (panel-style), and the interviewers were friendly. The questions were easy to moderate. Have examples prepared from prior jobs that highlight your skills.

    Be sure to have your own questions prepared.

    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.
