Working at Boeing

  • Background Check – 113 replies
    Dude 2 days 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?

    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.
    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.

    Does anyone know when, as far as hours during the day (e.g. 8a.m. to 4p.m.), the initial training classes usually occur? I recently received a contingent job offer for Aircraft Test Tech A in Everett during second shift. Unfortunately, I have one semester of school left (too late to drop the class), and my only on-campus class meets in the evening once a week (Wednesday) at 6 p.m. I'm hoping that the 10 week initial training, I have read about on various forums, occurs during first shift. If so, I will be able to attend training whenever it begins. Thanks in advance!

    Hello all, Just wondering how many of you out there who got a job at Boeing are still waiting for their start date? and or how long does it normally take from the time you complete your contingencies till someone tells you when your first day at work will be? I completed all my contingencies about 2 weeks ago and still haven't gotten my start date. Every time i e-mail the HR she replies back with the exact same question about if i took my drug test or not which i did several weeks ago. thanks

    I failed a urinalysis in the Navy and was given an Other-Than-Honorable Discharge. I have all my records and attorney's documents with glowing letters from my chain of command. I was drugged, but that is a hardly believable story. What are my chances of getting hired? I have no problem explaining everything.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Boeing? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Boeing?

    I have been lurking on this site for quite some time, ever since my husband started applying for Boeing jobs last July. He has applied for 5 jobs and finally in January he got invited to an interview to be held in Long Beach California for a job in Washington. So I immediately turn to this website for assistance as what to expect. We study the STAR method over and over until we have it down to a science. Our interview invite said to dress "business casual" which he has never gone to an interview in business casual attire, but if thats what they want, thats what we will give them. He shows up to the interview in jeans, a button up and some nice shoes (I know I cringe at this, but it was business casual) He walks into the interview and the first words out of there mouth were, "roll up your sleaves undo your top button and get ready to perform some tasks!" You read that right, no STAR questions nothing it was all based on job knowledge! They had tools there, and tasks for him to perform, they never asked him one "STAR" question! When he left the interview they told him he would hear something in 3-6 weeks as they had more interviews to do and wouldnt even be back in Washington to make a decision as who they were going to hire until the end of the week. Here is the next odd part, before we even made it home from the interview he received a phone call letting him know there was a job offer in his e-mail and they would like him to look it over and accept it so they can get him and his family to Washington as soon as possible! I am only saying there is no way to know what to expect, every situation is different and when you expect one thing there is a chance it is something completely different!!!!!! We are super excited for this new adventure in our life and I am just posting this to let people know follow your gut, dont beat yourself up expecting one thing cause it could be totally different, and it is possible to get a job at Boeing in Jeans and a button-up!

    Long scenario short here. I applied for Inspector assembly and installation B for the Everett plant opening on July 12th, 2014. I received an email from boeing asking me to complete an online questionnaire for the job on 8-3-2014, and did so the same day. I received another email on 8-13-14 informing me that the job opening has been cancelled, yet I am still under consideration apparently, according to my job status page. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I received a Fed-Ex package in the mail from Boeing today. It says that there is a concern with my criminal history. In the application under disclosure it ask me to disclose any misdemeanor or felony charges that I was CONVICTED of. I neglected to put down a charge that was dismissed. I didn’t put it down because a dismissed charge means that I wasn’t convicted. I even called their hotline to double check with them. Although the background paper work they sent me today included my dismissed charge. I called their hotline and I was told that I was going to have an investigator call me in the next few days. Does this mean that they’re going to withdraw the offer for employment? Has anyone else had this problem?
