Software Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Employee in Aurora, CO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Aurora, CO) in July 2017.

Interview

I applied online for University Programs in July 2017 and interviewed at Raytheon in Aurora, Colorado. The process took about 2 months. I was contacted for a phone interview about a month after I applied, in which interviewers asked basic behavioral questions and tested basic knowledge on object-oriented programming principles. I was invited to an onsite interview afterwards, in which I talked to the same people from the phone. Questions were more or less the same, except more in depth. They asked me to write pseudo code for generating the nth prime number and calculating n factorial. They didn't care too much about finding the most optimal solution and mostly wanted to see how you think when you solve a problem. Overall, the interview was very easy, and the engineers I talked to were very friendly and polite. I was given an unofficial offer 2 days after my interview, followed by an official letter in the following week.

Interview Questions

  • nth prime number - generate, print, store n prime numbers   Answer Question
  • What was your favorite/least favorite class?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Richardson, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online. 18 days later I received an email from someone at Talent Acquisition asking for some details about my qualifications and when would I be available for the interview.

    10 days later my interview was scheduled (there was a holiday between my answers and the response indicating that the interview had been scheduled).

    On the day of the interview, I checked in at the front desk and was met my interviewer and a fellow manager within 10 minutes.

    We went to a small conference room and sat down for the interview. Both individuals were professional and polite and asked questions about when did I first know that I wanted to be in software development and then some technical questions pertaining to the job.

    The questions began to be about items on my resume and about my knowledge of the various technologies necessary for the position.

    The interviewers then allowed me to ask questions.

    The experience was very positive and open for questions and concerns.
