    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was easy. I was just caught off guard with the call. Wasn't prepared enough to make an impression I believe. They asked about my projects and if I was willing to relocate. There wasn't any tough question but they wanted to know if I can answer anything about block diagrams and PID controller if I were to be interviewed in-person. No technical questions on the phone interview. They told me to wait two weeks for another call to set-up an in-person interview but I never received it. It's been 4 weeks, and at this point, I am a bit discouraged. However, my online job submission still says "Submission Under Review". I will update if something comes up.

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews (with different product lines within a single department) then travel to an on-site hiring event (great event!) where I had multiple interviews (both 1:1 and 3:1). I found out if I got the job the same day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tewksbury, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I felt like a sheep. But I am biased because I see myself as more of a small company person, and I mostly did this interview to see what happened. It was my first on-site interview.

    There were a few logistical errors that I would have expected a company like Raytheon to avoid. For example, they didn't give us a schedule, so I scheduled my departure flight too early. They rearranged the schedule so that we could all make our flights.

    They did a company overview and then interviews. There were maybe 50 students across a few fields. The overview was mostly talking about benefits and the company's history.

    The interviews were short, maybe 20-25 minutes with engineers. I had three interviews. My first one was 90% the guy talking, who knows what he was even talking about at this point. One piece of advice he gave me was to 'find the company you want, find the location you want, and then you can get married and have kids.' Right. The second and third one were more what I was expecting. We talked about my leadership position, my coding experience, the project I am involved in right now, things like that. It didn't seem very prepared, no tricky questions, mostly describing the position, looking over my resume, and then asking if I had any questions. It kind of felt like I was talking to a friend's dad.

    One nice thing was that we found out that day whether we would get an offer or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with two people, then got invited to a hiring event with over 200 people. The interview took about 45 minutes. There was a panel of three from the department. We mostly talked about my experience with a couple behavioral questions, but nothing too difficult. They were looking to hire a lot a people and it seemed like everyone I talked to got offers. As long as you have some good experience, preferably an internship, you should be fine.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Raytheon (Aurora, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Received a pre phone interview call a month after my application. Had a full phone screen with 2 senior-level engineers and hiring manager (called from Aurora, CO).

    Make sure to study all the responsibilities/duties written on the job posting and know your resume inside out. Most applicants will have different types of interviews, mine was more technical than behavioral.

    Overall, I had a great experience; I was very nervous before the phone call and they really put my mind at ease with jokes before asking me questions.
