Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
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.

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

    Had on campus interview with recruiters asking general behavioral questions, lasting about 15 min. Followed by a more extensive phone interview asking technical questions, lasting about 45 min. Finally, an in person interview in Indianapolis. The in person interview included a plant tour and was actually four 30 min interviews with four separate hiring managers over the course of 2 hours.

    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.

    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).

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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Melbourne, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Extensive testing prior to interview. Cordial personal interview. The interview was informal. Several members of the company participated in the process. Each panel member engaged on a one to one basis. It would have been an enjoyable company to work for. At the time, I was severely traumatized by several family problems unrelated to work. And, as a result, was not immediately available to start. The interviewers were very empathetic. I believe they would make an offer if I could reapply.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Raytheon (Colorado Springs, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad at all. The questions were fairly standard interview questions. My interviewer was cordial yet firm. I wish that the behavioral questions had been a little less personal and more focused on career ambitions. Overall, I had a pretty good experience interviewing with this company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raytheon.

    Interview

    A primary phone screening to get a feel for the candidate, just brief conversation. Then a phone interview with 2 engineers and the recruiter, nothing technical, just talked about my resume. Overall easy process, don't stress, as if they have selected to interview you you are most likely already favored.
