Boeing Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    How would you handle a situation in which you were presented with new material or a new task that you didn't understand?

      Most employers encourage and even expect learning on the job, and Boeing is no exception. This question provides you an opportunity to demonstrate how open you are to learning, developing, and even being coached by others. Professional development and growing leaders are both highly valued aspects of employment at Boeing, so your interviewer will need to see that potential and desire in you. Use this question to display to the interviewers how you identify where your gaps of understanding are as well as the initiative you take to seek solutions or support.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I welcome the unfamiliar at work, because it means that I have an opportunity to learn and grow as a professional. When I first receive something like this, I often start by asking clarifying questions about the material or project to better gauge my level of understanding. After that, I might simply research on my own depending on the circumstances and my level of non-understanding. However, if it is particularly complex, or if my understanding is minimal, then I would seek guidance from a supervisor or colleague. I have so much to learn from others at work, and I always appreciate the opportunity to develop in that way as a professional when I'm able."

      "In my last role, I was presented with an excel file which was difficult to understand. I went to see the person who created the file and asked for clarity on what was required from me. This worked."

      Lauren's Answer

      This is a solid answer. You are demonstrating resourcefulness and eagerness to learn. Awesome job. I made very minor grammatical edits.

      "Recently in studying a computer language module on my HDIP which was online learning, I found quite difficult to grasp a recursion - I asked questions via online forum and found that other students on the course had similar issues, the lecturer responded and gave additional link to engage with the material, other students also contributed in some video sources."

      Kristine's Answer

      Great answer! The interviewer will be impressed you took the lead in asking questions about the material in your online course. I assisted slightly with wording.

      "Recently I was studying a computer language module on my HDIP as part of an online learning course, and I found recursion quite difficult to grasp. So, I asked questions via the online forum and found that other students taking the course had similar issues. The lecturer shared additional links to engage with the material, and other students also shared some video sources."
