The internship program at Boeing includes several rounds and types of interviews.
The first interview is a telephone interview. During which, you will be asked several preliminary questions (qualifications, job experience, availability, skills, etc.) before you are invited to attend a formal interview. This phone interview typically lasts 25-35 minutes.
If you are invited to attend an in-person interview, be prepared to encounter a panel interview, group interview, or several back-to-back one-on-one interviews. Furthermore, each interview focuses on behavioral questions and it's highly recommended (sometimes even required) that you answer using the STAR method.
One of the most popular methods for answering interview questions is the STAR method. STAR stands for:
S: Situation – Situation means that you need to paint a picture in a general sense. In the Situation part of the answer, you must describe the background to the main event.
T: Task – Task is where you include the specifics. While in Situation, you were merely opening the story, in Task you are getting into the nitty gritty of the problem. You need to describe why it was such a big problem and why you were the one to deal with it.
A: Action – Action is really where you are aiming to get to the bottom of the story. You have been faced with a big challenge: How did you deal with it? What plan did you put into action to ensure the desired outcome?
R: Result – Result is wrapping up the story. After building up the problem and solution, you now have to explain how you got the desired result and what this achieved in the long run.
