Supply Chain Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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 Question – 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.

Program Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Boeing.
Interview Details Your resume has to have certain key words to filter through the system prior to anyone reviewing the content. Look at the job requisition and try to figure out what the buzz words may be. All interviews are with a panel of no less then 3 people. The hiring manager will be on the panel. They ask you between 8-10 behavioral type questions. I have interviewed many times and everyone is always professional and make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Interview Question – Using your previous logistics experience please describe your knowledge of regulatory with Dangerous Goods, International Traffic and Arms Regulations (ITAR). Answer Question
Administrative Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Boeing in March 2014.

Boeing will do a background check and you will be expected to take a drug test. If they like you and everything comes back OK, Boeing will send you an offer letter.

Integral Fuel Cell Sealer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Boeing in July 2012.
Interview Details Applied online for several positions over a period of months. Received a call and had an interviewed scheduled for about 10 days later. The interview was pretty low key, three interviewers asked me a series of questions that were mostly about how I work with other people and respond in compromising situations. I was also required to fit through a small hoop to prove that I could fit into the confined spaces that the job is performed in. I received a call with an offer later that day and accepted it. Started work in another two weeks.
Interview Question – Was asked about a time that I had to work as a team through a difficult or unusual circumstance. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, I was actually really surprised by the awesome pay and benefits.
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Boeing in May 2014.
Interview Details Submit application online, if you hit the right key words in your resume you can make it through BESS and then be "considered" for employment. Check the status under my jobs frequently as this will let you know how it is going. Eventually you get emails stating that you are no longer under consideration until, alas you are scheduled for an interview. You will get a call and email from an HR rep scheduling the time of the phone interview. The interview is a panel interview and all questions will come from the job req itself so practice. Ask yourself what questions can be derived from the competencies wanted in the description and create general stories that you can adapt depending on their precise wording. Write them down and keep them in front of you during the interview. The interview lasts about 30 mins or so and then you are prompted to ask questions. Ask three questions:
A general question about the company
A more specific question about the position you are applying for
Try to get your last question to solicit the hiring manager to talk a little about themself, this is a good thing.
Also, if you feel the interview went well ask them "When can I start?" This will show excitement for the position.
After the interview you wait, i waited for one week before I was sent an email offering me employment, contingent on multiple factors. You must log on to your resume account on boeing.com and view and either accept or decline the offer. There is a time limit so be careful not to wait too long. There are forms to complete, a drug test to take, and other contingencies for you to complete. If all goes well and your contingencies clear, Welcome to Boeing!
Interview Question – If you look under the competencies in the Req, and make a story that explains how you have shown this you will be golden. View Answer
