Senior Systems Engineer II Interview

Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in May 2016.

Interview

I was invited to a hiring event through my information on LinkedIn. I had one interview scheduled before I arrived, but at the evening mixer the night before, I was able to secure two additional interviews for the next day. I was asked about my prior experience as well as my leadership experience, which seemed to be as interesting to the interviewers as my work experience. Once I described my mostly non-careerI was volunteer work, they became much more interested. For my position, they seemed interested in people skills. I described my volunteer service as a Boy Scout leader, a Cub Scout leader, a church volunteer, and as a full-time missionary. They seemed to appreciate the skills learned in those opportunities.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and worked with some contacts to get an interview. When they were ready, the interview was scheduled through a recruiter. Because I was not local, I did a phone interview with a panel consisting of members of the team that lasted 30-45 minutes. After that, all the communication was through the recruiters. I don't know if their team was overloaded, but it was often slow hearing back from them. They didn't make an offer until I informed that that I had another opportunity, at which point the recruiter seemed to be scrambling to get back to me. I was excited about it, but unfortunately you don't always get what you want.

    • Why are you interested in this position?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    It kind of felt like I was constantly pulling teeth with the recruiters, and indirectly the management of the team I was applying for. I just thought, "if it's this difficult now, what's it going to be like in a year?" I decided it was probably better to let it go.
