Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Fort Irwin, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Raytheon in May 2009.

Interview Details It was on the phone, I was working over sea's and called at 4 AM in the morning. Most of the questions where very to the point and had to do with the job. Then we got in to how I would work out problems that where not part of my area but could from time to time fall in to my work day.
There was 4 managers on the phone, one would be the manager that I would work for if I got the job. Each manager had questions in there area, some very open, some very to the point.

Interview Question – there was a question that was what was the best way for an object to fall, in a line or in a curve? It would depend on what you where looking for the out come to be, was what I said. They never told me if I was correct.   Answer Question

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Tucson, AZ (US)

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Raytheon in March 2012.

Interview Details The interview process is straight forward. You interview with serveral managers and group members in a series of scheduled interviews. They give you background info on the company.
there were dinner interviews and lunch interviews. Overall very positive process. They gave us a schedule of our interviews. They allowed us to visit other departments and schedule interviews with them as well. We met several HR reresentatives as well as realtors from various compnaies who showed us arround and told us about the area.

Negotiation Details – The offer an initial ow offer. I refused it. They raised it up several thousand. I accepted. I should have asked for more money. They completer relocate you and your personal items including your car. This is a hassel free process for the most part. The new hire orientation can be difficult though.

Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Woburn, MA (US)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Raytheon in August 2012.

Interview Details The interview process happened very quickly. I was called for an interview on Tuesday and the interview took place on Thursday of that week. The invited approximately 5 other candidates. Food was put out, an overview of the company was given, then we broke off and had 1-on-1 interviews. Most people had 2-3 interviews. It lasted for approximately 2 hours. Decisions were made by Tuesday of the next week. The entire hiring process took about a month. It was a little longer than expected as they were sometimes slow to get back to me. Overall though, it was a good Interview and Hiring experience.

Interview Question – The interviewers all asked what I considered to be fairly standard interview questions. It felt more of a personality interview than a technical one. All three interviews obviously asked me about my technical background and problem solving abilities but for the majority of the interviews they wanted to know about what type of person I am. The teams appeared to be very strong and most likely wanted the candidate to be a good personalty fit as well.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary was negotiable but they remained fairly fixed in terms of their starting offer.
