    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services.

    Interview

    Flew me down to their facility in Arizona, basically a meet and greet. The interview was to make sure you would be a person that they could work with and were not crazy. I asked a lot of questions and they were impressed by that. Very friendly interviewers, I was emailed that I had gotten the position a few hours after the interview.

    Technical Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services (Tucson, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    After the start of the interview which I was led to believe was the project manager several department heads showed up and went around the room asking various questions about the job and the difficulties one would encounter if you were accepted for this position. It seemed the workforce was mostly union but the engineer's position was considered management.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services (Tucson, AZ) in March 2013.

    Interview

    After meeting with recruiters during an on-campus career fair, I was scheduled for a pre-screening interview before receiving the invitation to visit Raytheon's Tucson Headquarters. I was fortunate to speak with a former graduate I was familiar with who previously lead (and started) the school's Rocketry Club.

    Being from Tempe, it was a hop-skip-and-a-jump to Tucson, Arizona where I stayed a couple of nights in Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. It was a two day interview process, however, I spent an extra night before to meet with the managers and other employed QA Engineers and learn more about what they do.

    The process started off with a tour of Raytheon's Plant-site and a few of the facilities. They authorized you at the hotel by confirming your personal information, finger-prints, citizenship status, and provided temporary security clearance once confirmed (this also keeps you in the system). Of what I thought was the most memorable of the tour was the simulation room and electronics department where I observed employees calibrating missile heads and prototyping electronics for on-board chips.

    That evening, the conglomerate of candidates had a chance to meet with other departments other than the ones they were assigned and squeeze in a chance to interview with the recruiters the following day. The two hour period followed with dinner and a presentation from key note speaker Wes Kremer, vice president of Air and Missile Defense Systems.

    On the second day, interviews were conducted. Tables were set-up where HR provided revised interview schedules. My scheduled interview surprisingly was canceled in place of another session I was not originally committed to. After talking with the recruiters for some time, I was allowed back for my designated interview but at a much later time. We were sent to conference rooms and lounge areas dispersed around the hotel being questioned by at least two recruiters.

    Overall, the experience was great! They treated you well and made you feel a part of the company before even placed on payroll. 10/10 would do it again.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon Mission Operations and Services (Pasadena, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    3 phone interviews, 1 in person interview for which I was flown in. The in-person interview was with the direct managers at the client site. First run, I declined the offer in favor of another offer. Second run, I accepted the offer, after which came a drug test and background check.

    Interview Questions

    • In reality, I was very comfortable with all the questions. If anything, the question that called my attention was "what do you think of open source?". they wanted to see if I would be willing to learn an open source RDBMS (Postgres) in the eventuality they decided to migrate from Informix, their current RDBMS.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was quick. They offered me their 2nd top level for the position I was applying citing that if they were to give me the top level, I had little room for growth. I was satisfied with the starting salary, so I accepted. I did want a sign in/relocation bonus, and the recruiter "forgot" to include it in the offer. When I pointed out the omission, she mentioned "bonuses come from another budget, if I wanted one, we'd need to go thru the application process again." (application, drug test, background test, etc, not the interviews). I opted to not bother. Looking back, I should have.

    Not in a position to negotiate but fortunately the offer was fair
