    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Boston, MA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview relies heavily on past experience (either from college or work) rather than technical whiteboard questions, although some basic technical questions were asked. You need to be an U.S. Citizen for most positions, and a background check will be performed during interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Linthicum, MD) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Application via website with resume required to get things started. After putting in the application, it took a while to get the initial interview scheduled.

    The interview process was informal, with a scheduled time to arrive, but the various people to speak with did not seem to be scheduled in advance beyond the HR team. It was a little chaotic. I was expected to fill out another set of application papers at the interview. Be prepared with dates, addresses, and details of education, past jobs and references.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was very informal. It was done via email and phone calls with the talent acquisition representative. The company is willing to negotiate on weeks of vacation, and I was able to negotiate starting salary based on a bonus and education reimbursement that I would lose with my current employer if I left before the next Spring.

    Once the details were worked out, the company still took two weeks to get the formal offer out in the mail. I was surprised at how long the entire negotiation took.
