    Supply Chain Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Boeing in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    It took them almost 2 months after I applied to contact me for the interview. Interview took less than an hour, STAR approach. When you know the job, it's very easy to answer the questions.
    Interviewers were great: friendly, welcoming, understanding. I really enjoyed the experience. In 2 days I got a call advising that I was selected for the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation when you had to meet deadlines for multiple projects   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It was VERY difficult and long:
    they sent me an offer, I counter-offered. It took them 5 days to get back with an answer. They left the offer the way it was initially. I was going to take it anyway, advised my boss that I'm leaving and my employer gave me an offer as well. A very good one. So I declined Boeing's offer. 5 days later Boeing called me and offered a good signing bonus.
    I ended up accepting Boing's offer (it has just happened:-).
    My start date is in 4 weeks.
    Do not be afraid to counter-offer! Even if they don't accept it, they won't move to another candidate. they must offer you the initial package again, and then it's up to you - take it or leave it.

    Boeing uses a standard interview process where they ask all the candidates the same 5 questions and the panel scores the interviewee on their answers.
    The scores are usually keep everyone on the same playing field.

    Strategy and Business CaptureBDS Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via Boeing Careers about mid-March. I received a phone call for a phone interview about 3-4 weeks later. Afterwards, there was about a 3 week period until I heard back with their final decisions. The interview/applying process wasn't what took long. Once I was hired, I needed security clearance which took about 3-4 weeks. So, I didn't really get to start till the third week of June because Boeing requires you go through a training session that they only did on certain days of the week. I suggest apply as early as possible because the security clearance takes a while.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe how you would use something you learned in one of your classes during this internship. Describe a time when you led a group in something.   Answer Question

    Procurement Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    Structured Interview. Four people doing the interview including an HR rep. Questions can have little to do with the job or work you will perform so I suggest you come with a long list of your own questions for the end of the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions are situational so come prepared to tell them about real life work situations that you rescued   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I think it is hard to negotiate anything unless you have a very defined skill they cannot find. They have an attitude that thousands of others want the job so you are lucky they chose you. Cant even negotiate extra vacation as they are pretty slim on that when you start
