Working at Boeing


Founded in 1916, Boeing is now a leader in designing, manufacturing, and selling airplanes, rotorcrafts, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide.

Boeing employs over 140,000 people worldwide and has offices in more than 65 countries. It hires a variety of professionals, including engineers, scientists, technicians, manufacturing workers, and administrative staff. Boeing hires employees at all experience levels, from entry-level to senior positions.


Boeing Hiring Process


The Boeing hiring process is a competitive one since they are looking for candidates that are a good fit for the company culture as well as those who have the necessary skills and experience for the specific position.

The hiring process includes:

Boeing Online Application


Once you decide to apply for a position, you will have to fill out an online application form. Here, you will upload contact information, a resume, and other relevant information and qualifications. Visit the official website to see relevant Boeing jobs and positions.

Your online application, resume, and questionnaire are rigorously screened by the Taleo applicant tracking system (ATS). To ensure that your application moves forward in the hiring process, be sure that you have aligned your application and resume to reflect the written job description.

Boeing Assessment Test


Once your application has been reviewed, you will have to pass the Boeing pre-screen assessment, which will include tests measuring your cognitive abilities and/or behavioral traits. The following are some of the tests you will have to successfully complete.


Boeing Situational Judgment Test


Situational Judgment Tests are scenario-based assessments that aim to identify your problem-solving and decision-making skills relevant to the position you are applying for. This assessment should take around 30 minutes. You will be presented with a specific scenario and then will have to decide the best course of action.

The best way to answer this test is to research the job description thoroughly as well as Boeing’s mission and key values. Your answers will be compared to a control group based on people who are successful at the role.


Boeing Numerical Reasoning Test


Boeing’s Numerical Reasoning test examines your ability to understand numerical data such as charts, tables, and graphs. The content and difficulty of the operations will depend on the position you are applying for. However, the difficulty lies not in the mathematical complexity, but in the time constraint. The multiple-choice test will typically last 30 minutes.

To ace this assessment, you should refresh basic math formulas and operations, as well as practicing with sample questions to improve the speed in which you answer.


Boeing Technical or Skills Test


If you are applying for a skill-specific role, you will have to demonstrate your knowledge in a particular field. Technical tests are especially important for engineering positions, where candidates will be evaluated in skills such as programming, IT, or administration.


Boeing Mechanical Reasoning Test


The Mechanical Reasoning test includes 36 multiple-choice questions that must be answered in 20 minutes. You will be evaluated in physics concepts including aviation. This test is administered for candidates enlisting for engineering, mechanics, and production positions.

To successfully complete this test, you must practice mechanical concepts as well as going through several practice questions to familiarize yourself with the time pressure.


The NOCTI Electrical Test

The NOCTI certification demonstrates your skills and knowledge, covering careers and technical education pathways across different industries.

The NOCTI test for Electronic Technicians includes 142 multiple-choice questions with a time limit of 3 hours. You will be assessed on your knowledge of topics such as Electronic Theory and Equipment, Computers & Control, Practical Applications, and more. Practice properly, pass the cut score and earn your NOCTI certification.



All of these assessment may seem challenging, but you can definitely ace them with the proper preparation.

Boeing HireVue Assessments


HireVue Video Interview


The Boeing Pre-recorded Video Interview is an automated interview administered by HireVue. It is used to screen candidates for open positions and consists of a series of pre-recorded questions that you must answer online. You will have a limited amount of time to answer each question, usually 5 to 8 questions, and cannot retake after submitting it. Both your hard and soft skills will be evaluated, as well as specific abilities required for each position.


HireVue Game-Based Assessment


Like the Arctic Shores and Pymetrics assessments, HireVue uses a Game-Based Assessment designed to measure your cognitive abilities, critical thinking skills, personality traits, and emotional intelligence. This assessment is engaging as well as challenging and aims to mimic real-world tasks that Boeing employees encounter.

The results are used to assess the candidate’s fit for the position and company values. The games can include pattern recognition, solving complex puzzles and even memory challenges.

Boeing Assessment Center


Finally, after making it through the Boeing assessment test and HireVue assessments, the last step of the hiring process is to attend the Boeing Assessment Center. This is a full-day event that consists of a combination of individual and group exercises designed to measure certain skills and personality traits.

Some of the common exercises include:

  • Group discussion: You will sit in a group of 4-5 people and will have to discuss a particular topic or case study. Your solutions and interactions will help examine your communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.
  • Presentation: You will have to create a presentation on a given topic. This exercise is designed to assess your communication skills, confidence, and ability to work under pressure.
  • Boeing Final Interview: You will have an in-person interview to demonstrate your abilities, qualifications, and experience. Interviewers will expect you to provide them with examples and will evaluate your behavior. We recommend you check out our interview preparation practice page and practice the STAR method.

By the time you reach the Assessment Centre, you have already gone through a long journey through the hiring process. Nevertheless, don't let your advancement up until this point catch you off guard. Many applicants drop at this point, as this stage is highly comparative and demands high social skills. This is why preparation for Assessment Centers is a vital step in your journey.
