Congratulations on the job. I must say though that they did make you wait for it for quite a while.

My rep acknowledged that although it is a ways out, that is when "the requirements are". I'm not exactly sure what she meant by that but perhaps it has to do with the rate increasing? But everybody that I know that have recently went to Boeing stated that they had a three month wait as well. Not much I can do about it...

Did you get a start date yet?

Oh and orientation is day one on the payroll which is always on Friday. Then I report to training on the next Monday. She said for 8-10 weeks.

I got an email from Boeing Background to send some additional docs, W2 and current Paystatement. Does that mean that Verifications Inc has completed my check and now Boeing is doing the final thing????

I think it means they might have had a little trouble verifying employment. Especially if you put on your application NOT to contact current employer. So when you give them your additional docs, hopefully it will be all that is left.

It will change.
Then what happened with me is they called and set up my PEP and orientation.
Then the other tabs opened up!

When you find out, I'm curious to know when your orientation is...

Hi yodafafoda,

So I have my phone interview tomorrow morning for an Aerodynamics Eng position with Boeing. Any pointers that you can give me?

What questions did they ask you?

Any other details that you can give me will be very helpful.

Thanks a lot!

Good luck with your interview!
Study up on STAR questions.
You will be asked approx five questions. All of them are behavioral; non technical.
Per protocol we were all asked not to reveal the questions so that everybody can have a fair shot. Do a google search for STAR interview questions.

Yes it went like you said it would. Thanks a lot for that. It gave me a lot of confidence into the interview. We will see if I get into the second stage... how was the face-to-face interview by the way? That will help me further prepare for it.

I did not have a phone interview, only a face to face. And that's how that went.

So perhaps a job offer will come your way with out a face to face? I don't know? I got the same schpeel about decision within 3 weeks.

Good luck, I hope it works out for you.

Hey guys,

I went to an interview on Jan 25th but haven't heard back from them since. Now, I don't know who to contact since I don't have any contact info of the people who interviewed me. Is there a number that I could call to ask my status? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, unfortunately therez no way to find out ur status after the interview, u just need to be patient.. are u still under consideration on the BESS? if yes then patience is the best key.

Yup Renton is right. If you are still "under consideration" then you may still get the call. Unfortunately, everything takes forever! There will not be a contact number until an offer comes through. Are you still under consideration?

Well, here's the deal... It's hard to say? I am still under consideration for jobs that I applied for back in September! I have no choice but to think that [sometimes] they don't update the BESS system? Then again if they do update it, it takes them a while. Sometimes a long while.

I would say keep your hopes up, and keep applying. It could be that a lot of offers we're extended for the position you applied for. And even though they may have extended many offers, not everybody will be able to pass the contingencies; so they fall out, thus opening up more slots for more potentials. Then again, if they extend a bunch of offers and the applicants pass, then the slots run out. It's really a toss up. I interviewed on the same day as you, and I'm all done with everything except my orientation is still not for a while yet...

Good luck! Keep us updated!

yodafafoda in Marysville, Washington

Oh, and your question about being contacted.... I would guess that the BESS system would say "no longer under consideration" if you fall out... IF they update it. But they will not call you telling you that other applicants are being considered.

They will only contact you if they want to extend an offer.

Just came back to the forum to see all the replies. I am still waiting to hear back from Boeing. Looks like next week will be the week to know if I go to the next stage of the interview process. My status hasn't changed so I guess that's good.

@ T45d: During my phone interview, I personally asked them for contact info and the interviewers actually emailed me personally their info so that will be useful to follow up later on. That was nice from them.

I am crossing my fingers to go into the next stage. It will be so awesome to work with Boeing :D

To yodafoda and SM Renton: thank you for your replies. These make me feel comfortable about my hiring. You know, nowadays finding a new job is quite hard, so before leaving the one I have I wanted to make sure I really have something firmer than a simple offer.

Applied in Dec. 2011
Interviewed Dec 15th
Contingent offer Mar 07th
Contingencies cleared Mar 19th
PEP April 18th
Orientation April 20th

It is quite the process. Just remember to READ the job description you are applying for. Think about it as if YOU were assigning a computer to scan resumes. What specific words or group of words would YOU choose for finding a good job candidate. Then integrate these words or sentence fragments into your resume. Also, try to make your resume more modern! Companies don't give a hoot about your Career Objective. Format resume in the following: personal info (name, phone, email), professional profile (listing your skills and qualifications/certifications), Professional experience (places and timelines of past employment), and education (you might want to put education first for internships).

If you get the interview they basically score you and put you into a candidate pool. The higher you score the quicker you get pulled. Brush up on STAR questions, and sell yourself! LOL. Good luck.
