Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Raytheon.

Interview

I attended Raytheon's engineering open house. Upon arrival, my resume was given to a hiring manager, then I was called to a different room and was interviewed by a lead engineer. He asked me basic Java questions, what I know about the technologies I listed on my resume, and projects that I have developed.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    I wouldn't say casual but better than I expected. I had a panel for different jobs and they all asked me questions about my experience in related areas after given me a brief description on what the overall job goal was.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (El Segundo, CA).

    Interview

    Very relaxed but made sure you understood yourself, your projects, and basic programming principles. I had three one-on-one interviews and two of them were very conversational and it felt like they wanted me to show my best side and get the job. The last one didn't seem to understand that I'm am ENGINEER not a BUSINESS person since he asked about management and financial ideas. Still the best interview I've ever been to.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (State College, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with the manager you'd be reporting to. Discuss typical things: skills, school work, the job. Lots of information pertaining to the specific position is classified, but that's expected with Security Clearance work. On-site, met with the manager from my phone interview, and two engineers one at a time. Asked basic questions about my resume and background. The entire process seemed to be based around making sure I wasn't bluffing about my resume and experience rather than burning my at the stake over textbook algorithm questions. Very relaxed and engaging. Everyone was very pleasant and down-to-earth about the recruiting process. Left a great impression of the type of people they hire.

    Interview Questions

    • Resume questions. No coding.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offer was good considering the area and cost of living.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was mostly behavioral designed to see how well you work in teams and if you have the capacity to lead. If you've been through one behavioral interview you've been through them all just about. With that being said make sure you anticipate these questions and have bullets on your resume that already answers these questions. The less the recruiters have to ask the better. As a defense contractor Raytheon will require you to be able to obtain a security clearance. If you are not a US citizen your best bet is to look at private sector jobs because it is very hard to progress in a company such as Raytheon and be foreign.
