    2: On-site interview. Basic introduction to company structure and departments, then four 1:1 interviews which felt more like conversations than actual interviews. Received an offer several days later.

    The company paid for travel to the location for the interview day. There were 11 candidates at the interview. Each of us had four 30 minute interviews with groups of 1 to 4 recruiters. They asked basic behavioral questions from experience on our resumes. After the interviews we had lunch with the recruiters and were given a tour of the campus. Overall it was a very friendly environment.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (State College, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in April 2016. In June I received an email to set up a phone interview, then in July I had my in-person interview. The phone interview was 10-15 minutes, we talked a bit about my programming experience and familiarity with some programming and software engineering concepts (all basic stuff and mostly yes/no), the majority of the call was spent discussing the company and their site's focus.

    The in-person interview took two hours. I met with the person I spoke with on the phone, toured a bit of the building, then had two ~45 minute sessions with two senior engineers (individually). They went over a checklist of things but we mostly just talked about my resume. I wasn't familiar with some of the technologies they mentioned but it wasn't an issue. It seemed like they were just asking out of curiosity. I wasn't asked to write any code - I think that was left up to the interviewer. I was asked some typical behavioral questions, though, and a few follow-up questions on technical things related to my resume. Everyone during the entire process was very kind and easy to talk to.

    I received an offer via email two days later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the company's website.

    After approximately 2 weeks I received a phone call requesting to set up a day and time for an over-the-phone interview. During the phone interview I was given a slightly more elaborate description of what the job entailed, asked questions about and to elaborate on different pieces of my resume, asked a variety of general behavioral and introductory to intermediate technical questions from 4 different interviewers, and allowed time to ask questions of my own. The following day I received a phone call that they wanted to proceed with a face-to-face interview for which they flew me in and covered all expenses. The face-to-face took place roughly 2 weeks later and was essentially a reiteration of the phone interview with a couple of different questions and a coding sample. A couple of days later I received an offer email.

    The entire interview process took roughly 5 weeks to complete.
