Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Raytheon in October 2015.

Interview

Phone interview no previous notice... general question. Went through my resume and asked me about relocation and different regular questions. I think it’s not professional to make a phone interview without set up a time for the interview so I could prepare.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There was a huge hiring event in Tucson. It was mostly engineers, but there were people there from all disciplines. The actual interview was mostly behavioral questions and a review of my resume. I got stumped on a few technical questions, but I received an offer anyway. I brought pictures of my previous projects and that seemed to help.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (El Segundo, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Got an email from a recruiter at the company after having submitted an application several weeks prior. I was asked to provide a few examples of my work from previous internships and/or school projects that might be relevant to the position. I basically put together a portfolio and sent that over. I got a call about 3 weeks later from a different recruiter. We set up an interview for the following week where I met with 3 managers. The interviews were very relaxed and conversational. They had looked over the work experiences and asked me basically to describe those experiences in more detail, with maybe a few questions thrown in. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I was told I should hear back in about 3 weeks, and ended up getting an offer after about 4 weeks.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon (San Diego, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The initial communications was through a human resource representative to coordinate a phone interview. After the phone interview was arranged my section/hiring manager contacted me. The interview took roughly an hour. Most of the questions were behavioral due to my previous summer internship. After the phone interview I received a DHL package 3 days later with my official offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tewksbury, MA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    12 or so candidates were brought together and taken a few at a time to interview. Total session included an info session about benefits at Raytheon and then two individual interviews each. The rest of the time we just relaxed in a big conference room with two hiring managers. The strangest part I would say was that we had to be "watched" the whole time, so even if we had to use the restroom, someone had to accompany us.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    On campus recruiting, largely was to determine that you aren't weird and then tell you that the interview was largely useless. You still need to apply individually for all of the jobs online.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (McKinney, TX) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I attended the “College Interview Day” they held in McKinney, TX. They invited a group of recent graduates and split us up into two groups. The first group for the first half got to do a “speed dating” type of interview where they interviewed with at least three engineers, speaking with each for about half an hour. The second group got a tour of part of the facility and sat through a presentation on the benefits Raytheon offers. For the second half, the two groups switched.

    Very easy interviews because they recently won a bunch of contracts they didn’t think they were going to and they wanted to hire recent grads. The environment was very friendly and the recruiters basically prepped us before the interviews.
