    Easy Interview

    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 online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Raytheon (Marlborough, MA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Had 6 interviews - know your resume well. Questions tend to build off of your resume. They may ask what if you did you project this way? Is it possible? What potential problems do you forsee?

    Surprisingly, I didn't get any behavioral questions. I would be prepared with them just in case.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (Marlborough, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online, and a week later, I received an email from an engineering fellow about a phone screening. He asked me what type of work I was interested in, and explained their work. He liked my responses, so arranged to fly me out for an on-site interview. HR arranged all the travel and stuff for me, and I arrived in Marlborough the afternoon before. The directions to the site were a bit trickier than I thought, so I arrived a few minutes late.

    I had four interviews with four managers. First one just talked at me, but the second guy was pretty excited about technical questions, which covered a whole range (waveforms, networks, coding, filters), and third guy was kind of behavioral. Fourth interview was also just chatting, mainly about life in Massachusetts. I had lunch with one of the junior engineers, officially not an interview, and then had a follow up with the recruiter, who said she'd be in touch with me within a week. This was a Wednesday. I received a call from her on Monday, and the offer package arrived on Tuesday.

    Interview Questions

    • Why does the DVBS-2 standard use 16APSK instead 16PSK constellation? Also some questions about filtering, since I usually would have separated that from communications subjects (more towards signal processing)   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I think that relocation assistance was insufficient. HR was not willing to budge on it. I took another offer with another company that was local (same salary and everything)
