    Great Company, solid benefits and compensation. Strong leadership, committed people with exceptional business unit performance. There are many opportunities for advancement up to senior manager. The work is challenging and the business unit is ramping up R&D investment. Work life balance in Tucson division is world class...every other Friday is a real-off day and practiced by leadership. Generous PTO plan even for new hires. Cost of living in Tucson is inexpensive...very inexpensive. Adequate relocation package. The executive leadership team in Tucson is highly competent and genuine.


    The slow push towards HSA health insurance is not desirable, but I feel this may become the norm across all big business. Strong chance that the traditional PPO/POS type plans are eventually removed. Tucson area is a great place to raise a family, but if you are from a large city it can seem a bit boring (particularly if you are under 40 and single).

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing, virtually everything is going great. The company is doing a much better job with diversity and it shows. It could be helpful to make the international travel policy (seat class) consistent across all functions and programs though.

    Electromics Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in White Sands, NM
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon (White Sands, NM).


    Not hard but had to know your stuff, there were many questions on reading drawings and schematics and had some practical questions on how to troubleshoot an issue. This was such a long time ago and I am not sure what the process would be today, but what I do remember was the it did not take long for me to receive an offer once the interview was done.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you expect if a particular circuit board component (Diode) is either shorted or open to effect the output? this was done with a schematic   1 Answer


    There was not much in the way of negotiations as this was considered an hourly position. I did however get a bump in pay rather quickly as I established myself with leadership. There is not much to tell as this was a long time ago.
