Working at Boeing

    Boing is going to bring the production of the 787 to Charleston S.C. and the buzz on the street is nothing but optimistic as to what this means to our local community. I, for one, am extremely excited about this opportunity for the simple fact that this opens the door for approximately 3800 jobs. With a brief history of Aircraft Electrical and Environmental Systems from my service in the USAF, I am looking forward to earning the opportunity to make the career move from restaurant and retail management back to something I really love, and that’s pretty much anything dealing with aviation. The application process is extremely lengthy and time consuming, and I wanted to enlighten anyone in the middle of the process as to what lies ahead. You must remain patient and stay focused on your goal of employment at the end of this process. I personally have been riding this roller coaster of emotions for over 4 months now and I am finally starting my pre-employment training on Monday, Feb. 8th 2010. I am extremely excited about my opportunity ahead and I know many of you out there are feeling the same way I do and are desperately wanting to know where they stand in the process. I hope to shed some light on the subject for you and welcome any feedback or shared experiences as well… Step 1: go to and submit your application. This may be a wasted step if you do not have 1 year of experience in Manufacturing, Aircraft or Automotive Maintenance, or Construction. Look at the requirements first. Don't worry, if your not qualified, they offer classes at the local community college, Trident Tech, and also so other alternatives, see for more info as well.
  • Sleepless in Charleston 1 day ago
    I recently accepted an offer from Boeing to work in their IT center in Charleston. Everything is complete on my profile outside of the background screening. Does anyone have any insight as to what gets checked for IT positions? I've never been arrested before but my credit isn't great because I have a short sale on my record. Also, I think I may have under sold myself a bit. I went pretty conservative on my GPA on the application because I wasn't sure what it was. After checking with the school it was higher than expected. Also, on my current job I may have accidentally put my employment start date a year after I actually started. I've been working at the same place since my last year in high school, for over ten years and this is the only job I've ever held. Will Verifications, Inc. or Boeing security flag me thinking I lied on my resume and application? This honestly was one of those situations where I didn't think in a million years I'd get an interview much less an offer. Thanks for your help

    So I applied for a Office admin B position. I went in for the interview. I recently got an email to fill out an application and a background check. I currently work for a 3rd party company through Boeing and have passed the background check and everything for them before. All of a sudden it says I am no longer under consideration. Is there any way that they will still give me a job offer? The only thing I have against me is that my mother and husband both work for them but in other areas, I would never even see them. Everyone kept saying that if they went thought the trouble of having me fill out an application then I have the job.. I am so stressed out about this, I so wanted it. Please give me some good news people!!! Thank you and have an awesome night..

    I've worked in the defense industry for 14.5 years. I was laid off from Lockheed Martin last year. I recently came across a Boeing job that read like my resume. After 3 days my status changed to no longer under consideration. How reliable are these status changes? I'm really discouraged that I wasn't contacted about thus position.

    I have been applying to jobs in Boeing mainly in Greater Seattle area. I have applied to 7 jobs as yet of which the website shows I am under consideration for 3 of them. Does any one know what under consideration means? Does that mean my resume is being looked at? Or does it mean that the job is still open? Or is it that they have to consider my resume untill the job posting is open. Can any one help please. Thanks in Advance.

    Has anyone tried to really after waiting the 18 months they make you wait after failing a pre-employment drug screening? Does it affect your chances of getting hired? It was a mistake-there wouldnt have been anything in my system.
  • Offer dilemma – 0 replies
    sqt5202 23 days ago
    I recently received a contingent offer for Modification electrician field in Seattle. My dilemma is that I currently am employed at JBLM as a contractor and the starting pay is considerably lower than what I make now, like 12 dollars an hour lower. I tried contacting the staffing specialist to see if there may be any room for negotiating my compensation, to no avail. I would love to work for the company and can afford the pay cut( not that I wouldn't feel it), but would like to know how realistic is moving around in the company, is it a pretty common occurrence? I guess what I'm looking for is a faster trac for a pay raise than receiving the standard 50 cent 6 month raise? I am by no means inexperienced, 12+ years in the field, it almost seems unfair to start out that low considering my experience and education(about 1 semester from completing my Associates in IT). The most enticing and probably one of the only reasons for me considering this position is the 6 year labor grade max out. How realistic is it that people stick around that long? Another reason for the consideration is the "foot in the door" outlook. I've been applying to Boeing for a long time and would hate to let this chance pass me by.

    Hi my name is Angela and I applied for a job at Boeing in April 2010. I am still under consideration for this job. I live in St. Louis, MO and the job is in Everett, WA. Does being under consideration for so longer mean that I will not get the job. Does Boeing offer any reloation packages for new employee. Any help will be appreciated.
  • Background Check – 112 replies
    solo 1 month ago
    I am currently awaiting my background check to clear. Yesterday i recieved a letter in the mail via fedex stating that my background check has raised concerns for my suitability of being hired. The only thing i have on my record is a dui which i did not disclose due to the fact that the application stated i didn't need to list any charges that i took pretrial classes for. Unfortunately i misunderstood this and did not disclose it being that i took pre trial classes for it. The letter also states that i am to contact boeing security background screening which i did and haven't heard anything back. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think that this means they will select another applicant indeffinately or do i still have a shot at getting hired?
