    Supply Chain Specialist Interview

    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.

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    Contract to direct hire, started as a contractor but was hired on after 6 months. Work was an adjustment for a couple weeks, after that repetition and learning the product made it easier every month after that. Software was not taught, had experience and what I did not know I had to learn on my own while there, which was the best thing for me.

    Principal Engineer/Scientist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Boeing.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager had already decided to hire me and told me so in the first five minutes of the on-site interview, including the pay - rest was just talking with the group members, visit to the plant and dinner. However, it took six months total from start to finish and a lot of telephoning and emailing the hiring manager before the interview itself took place. He had seen me earlier presenting my papers elsewhere at technical conferences.

    Negotiation Details
    The hiring manager offered me a job and pay right at the beginning of the on-site interview. So, I took my time, and counter-offered within a week or so. After he renewed the offer with 10+% increased base pay, I still asked for other bonuses, like, signing bonus, higher relocation expenses, and one month stay at the hotel after moving instead of the usual two weeks - all of which he agreed upon. He also asked me to start on Jan. 2, rather than Jan. 3 or later, so that I would become eligible for the regular pay raise in March. that was a very helpful hint. However, it did take a lot of to-and-fro communication but was well worth the wait!

    My suggestion to any potential employee at this senior level is: never take the first offer, always counter-offer with appropriate reasons, they expect it; signing bonus, relo, initial stay at hotel, etc., come from a different pot of money than the manager's home account, so always ask for it. Boeing is pretty lenient about it. This was in 2000 era, I don't know what the situation is now though, and the response may depend from manager to manager.
