Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon.

Interview

Straight forward phone interview followed by in-person interviews. Once you get pre-qualified by HR for the initial interview, the hiring manager will contact you for an interview. Then optionally, you will have an interview scheduled with your would-be peers. Most the questions were situation based questions to measure experience.

    Technically - questions were of moderate level of difficulty.
    Behavioral - questions were interesting and good in assessing my thoughts and insights.

    Generally, the interview process was pretty easy. Interviewers were easy to build a rapport with. The interview turned into more of a conversation after I answered the first few questions.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They were very guiding and understanding of my concerns that a large move across country would have on my family. They were willing to work a rollout plan that was an easy to adjust to transition plan. I interviewed with a recruiter as a first step to understand my requests. Next was the hiring manager which was discussing the details of the role, and finally the final offer process from the HR representative.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Arlington, VA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    After a detailed phone interview I was called back a few weeks later to come in for 4 hours of 1:1 interviews (6 people were being called in). A few weeks after that I was called back in for two additional 1:1 interviews (the final 2 candidates were being called back). Then after 8 weeks of calling and e-mailing the hiring manager (a call and e-mail every week or two) to find out the status of the position, not one call or e-mail was returned, I received a "HireRight" templated e-mail informing me that I was not selected.

    After taking so much of my time I thought I would have received a simple phone call, just as a common courtesy.

    If they treat people that way I'm glad that I didn't get an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with the hiring manager, which lasted approximately an hour.
    About a week later, the recruiter phoned to schedule an on-site interview.
    I was at their facility for most of the day, moving from one office to another.

    They asked me a lot of canned questions, such as "discuss a very challenging team situation and how did you overcome it?"
