    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Raytheon (Tucson, AZ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was cold called by a recruiter for one of their hiring events (they had my resume on hand from last year). The event lasted a few days and included a tour of the plant, a networking event where you can meet the section heads and potentially score more interviews, then an interview day. I came with one guaranteed interview and ended up with three; could've gotten more if I wanted.

    Interview Questions

    • Varied from group to group; ranged from several high-level technical questions about previous work to your garden variety interview questions to no questions whatsoever.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    After looking for this position in this area, I noticed that the offer was below the mean and the last offer they puttted out for a former employee reporting to Glassdoor. And after making the research, it was totally unfair and not felt motivated to leave my current job after saw their offer. Persons with experience will use this resources to get prepaired for any job offer.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Aurora, CO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited to a hiring event. I talked with a manager for 90 minutes, and it felt more like a conversation than an interview. At the end of our discussion, he said I'd fill out an online application as a formality and to expect an offer in about 3 weeks, which is exactly what happened. There were no questions designed to test specific technical knowledge, but we did discuss my technical abilities based on my previous experience. He was a fantastic interviewer and I enjoyed my experience.
