    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a 4-hour interview with three engineers and team manager. And a good lunch with all the interviewers. There were four questions about the knowledge learnt in college. They were very basic nothing difficult. Since the position is related to RF. Most of the questions are related to antenna, smith chart etc.

    Manufacturing Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Santa Barbara, CA).

    Interview

    The process for Raytheon's interviewing is becoming the more standard version of interviews for engineers.

    1. Phone Interview: Spent about 30 minutes on phone with the hiring manager and engineer in the same position. The purpose of the phone call is to question you on some of your resume points, get to know you, and gives you an insight into the position so you can see whether it is a match.
    (I spent a lot of time asking questions - major key).

    2. In-person Interview: Not always same in all locations. I had multiple interviews in one day with engineers, hiring manager, other managers, and many of the people that I would be working with. Entire interview process was about 6 hours. Also included a 30-45 min. technical presentation (not extremely technical, but good to share some projects, work experience and ethics, personality, presentation skills).

    My best advice - be yourself. My experience was that the Raytheon employees were very friendly and already had an idea that they wanted to hire. The purpose of the interviews were to evaluate your personal and professional qualities.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question
    • How well do you work in teams?   Answer Question
    • Name an experience where you had to communicate with non-engineers about technical issues. How did you communicate this effectively?   1 Answer

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Resume questions. No coding.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offer was good considering the area and cost of living.
