A Boeing Employee's Warning in Seattle, Washington

91 months ago

Host said: It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Boeing?
Any advice on striking the right note?

All you need to do is bring a section of garden hose and a golf ball. Suck the golf ball through the hose and you're in! I would suggest greasing the inside of the hose at home before you go to the interview. But if the interviewer catches you at this, don't despair, as your chances of getting hired are still excellent. Boeing likes employees that are willing to cheat to get the job done!

umm...so anyways....its a structured interview process now. It's easy to google search it to learn more. Answer using the S.T.A.R. method: situation, task, action, and result. Many companies are shifting to this method.

From experience it can take several months to find out, depending on how critical the position is. One of my friends was officially rejected after almost 4 months of waiting. The longest I have waited for a rejection was about a month and the shortest was about two weeks. I know Boeing is trying to streamline their process to make it as short as possible but I think it depends which site is actually processing your paperwork. If you are rejected, you'll find out two ways: an email from the interviewer or a change in your online status to "no longer under consideration".

Since it has been longer than one month, I suggest emailing the person that setup your interview to find out what your status is. From my own experience, it seems like the hiring managers choose their candidate soon after all the interviews have been completed. However, the position may not be officially closed until the chosen candidate officially accepts the position. Then all the other candidates in consideration can be notified that they are out of the running. But if, for some reason, the chosen candidate declines the offer, then the some other candidate must be chosen.

Yes. This is not common but does happen. In my scenario I was under consideration then dropped then under consideration again within a month...offered the job soon after interview.

I have been doing this for a couple years now and have had job offers as soon as three months and others that took six months...they are constantly trying to "better" the BESS system so the best advice is to be patient and keep looking while you are waiting...you never know.

"Under Consideration" is a necessary evil at Boeing, as they get so many applicants and have to go through so many interviews it's impossible to update everyone on a daily basis. Yes, try and touch base with the interviewer to learn your status, but don't be a pest.

Also, try the recommendations at www.geocities.com/BoeingJobTips/

Just to let you all know, the online status doesnt always change. I have been under consideration for a job for almost 3 years now. I was hired for that job 3 years ago also, but the other jobs i applied for at the same time still say under consideration.

I interviewed by phone for an employee development specialist job in SC on the 14th of October, 2 weeks later got an email saying congratulations, we need you to fill out an on line application before we can proceed furthar. that was complete on the 27th of October. how long might it take to hear back on anything. This really is a nerve racking process.

Probably generic Q's about "tell us about how you worked with a team to solve a problem when everyone wanted to implement their own solution" and other generic things. You need to prove/provide in the answers what technical details/abilities you know.

Boeing at times do not send you respond back to let you know that you have not been selected. You could go on the web site and look to see if you are still under consideration. For the most part you will know if you have the job within a few weeks, it does not take that long to get hired.

I just interviewed at Boeing a couple of days ago for integral fuel cell sealer A in Everett. It went well only fumbled one question but got through it. The team seemed to like me and had me fit through a oval ring as a test wich I did. So that sounds positive! Any feed back to time frames of next steps?

Boeing interviews are structured interviews, you will be interviewed by 5 or 6 people, including HR staff, I would google to see if you could find out what kind of questions they will ask, look up your position you might just find out what questions they will ask, you will be scored and if you score high you will get that position. Just be you, do not go there thinking you know it all, and if you know how to lie do it, everyone is doing it to get ahead.

So I am hearing a lot about the wait after an interview on here. What I am not really seeing questions about is the process for the time period before the first interview. This is where my status is currently with Boeing. I have been under consideration for a few positions, but one in particular. It is for a fabrication specialist in SLC. It does not require a security clearance, even if it did I have a clearance already from when I was in the USAF. I also have a person who works for Boeing in this department that has given his manager a good word for me. Almost four weeks ago, I spoke to this person who told me that my resume in on his managers desk after some screening processes, and that his manager has mentioned to him that is looks really good. However, after that I have not heard anything, just weeks of waiting for a call or email, which is hopefully to set up my interview. I was told this was a long process, and I know it's not a good idea of mine to be impatient, however, I really want this career for my family, and have even turned my college major toward a more Boeing friendly major. I am excited to hear back, and wondering just how long is still ok to be waiting for word about my interview. Is it a bad sign to wait a month after the manager had my resume in hand?

I keep being told to be patient, also. I bet you'll get the job. I bet it's just a matter of time. And I hear this time of year is especially slow.

First of all Boeing does not hire during the holiday that is official, second of all the process is a long one, if they are going to hire you it will be after the holiday as they are shut down during the holiday for over a week, so relax and after the holiday I am sure you will hear from them. They are not going to hire you to pay you to be out for the holiday since they pay all employee for the holiday shut down

Look it up on line. Have you ever been on a structure interview? If you have not, well be ready to get drilled by 4 to 5 folks. They will ask you about questions that relate to the position, they want to know how much you know, just answer the question do to talk to much. They will score you to see how well you answered and that is how you will get hired, they do it by a scoring point. Good luck. I would look up Assembly Installer structure interview and see what you can find. You might find questions pertaining to the interview
