I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Collins Aerospace

Interview

In person interview lasted around 15-20 minutes. Asked questions and wrote keywords of my answers on a sheet of paper. Was told afterwards that the interviewer is not the one that choose to move forward with applicants but his "boss" who reviews the annotations of each applicant. Thought I did great but never heard back.

I interviewed at Collins Aerospace

Interview

They asked me some questions about my background and seemed interested in me. I was very laid back and everyone seemed very nice. They did not ask any technical questions, just about my personality.

Easy interview process. Hiring manager was very nice, and made it clear that he would only use the input from his team to make a final decision, not from himself. Fully remote

I applied online. I interviewed at Collins Aerospace (Remote)

Interview

The interview lasted over the course of three months. Ultimately, the hiring manager took about three weeks to decide between three candidates. I am more alarmed about the time it required the manager to make a decision versus the decision they made. The recruiter was kind until the final decision was made and I didn’t hear a reply after calling and emailing multiples times for an update. Very unfortunate because the company is great but this team seems to be inefficient.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Collins Aerospace (Cork) in Dec 2022

Interview

What a waste of time: 5 hours interview process (plus presentation preparation) for 2 positions (I had applied for 1 only). 1 hour presentation, technical questions (3 hours) and non technical questions from Director and HR (1 hour). In the end, they do not seem to be really hiring (which is why their positions have been advertised for months). And the worst thing is that after a 5 hours interview, I got an automated email from Raytheon at 8pm in the evening (with no feedback at all) that said 'we are not proceeding'. They are ridiculous.

Interview Questions
  • Comments on presentation I had prepared. They asked questions about things they know to show that they know things (I know other things). Awkward questions from Director (example: have you met any extraordinary people recently?.....) and strange comments and questions from HR (example: 'should I make you an offer quickly?' or 'nearby companies are stealing our employees'. As a matter of fact, it might be worth to directly interview with those companies and skip Collins Cork.
