Interviewed at Raytheon
Interview Details I have no complaints about the hiring/interviewing process, everything is very organized.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Raytheon in June 2013.
Interview Details I was contacted by email to set up an interview with the department manager. The day of the interview, the manager was unavailable due to "circumstances beyond his control." Instead, I was interviewed by 2 other engineers and a lower-level manager. I was told I would be contacted one way or the other in about a week. Two weeks later, hearing nothing, I called the manager I interviewed with. He directed me to an HR rep, who routed me to another HR rep, who sent me an email 2 days later saying someone else already got the job.
Interview Question – From the manager: "My son is starting at CNU (where I went) this fall, can you recommend some things to do on the weekends?" View Answer

Interview Details I went to careerfair, nice suit and prepared. Met a recruiter (engineer who got called to do it) and he gave me an screening interview. At the screening interview the next day, was asked basic STAR-type questions. He asked basically 3-4 questions and then had a chat. It was suppose to be really casual interview

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Raytheon in April 2013.
Interview Details Extremely detailed interview process. It started with a call from their recruiter, and if he determines that you are a potential match, you will receive a call from an engineer for a phone screen. The phone screen consists of various software engineering and computer science questions. Example topics: Asymptotic complexity analysis, system design (high level), basic algorithms and data sorting.
If the phone screen was successful, you will be invited to an on-site interview. Be prepared to spend anywhere between 3-8 hours for this interview. The purpose of this interview is to answer three basic questions:
1) Do they know what they claim to know (as stated on their resume)?
2) Is the candidate smart?
3) Can the candidate make use of new information to solve challenging problems?
It doesn't matter that you don't know everything. What is important is your ability to take new information and effectively apply it to problems. You will be stretched beyond your means, and the interview panel will continue to ask progressively harder questions until we either run out of time, or you run out of answers.
Interview Question – Most difficult real question had to do with threading and data safety. Expect to write code.
Most difficult question seems fairly innocuous: What does i++ do? View Answer
Negotiation Details – They knew that I already had another offer from a different company. They asked what that offer was and beat it by 15%. I probably could have negotiated more.

Interview Details They was a job fair and I interviewed there and then called me on the phone and then invited me to a hiring conference in town.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Raytheon.
Interview Details The position clearly required little supervision. Their questions were geared toward determining if you could learn fast, work with almost no supervision, and how well you handled unexpected changes during the work day. Not a position for someone who likes to focus on one project at a time.
Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. How well do you handle stress? How do you feel about working in a busy environment with constant interruptions? Are you comfortable with changing priorities throughout the day? There was obviously not a script of questions for this position when I interviewed. Answer Question
