Boeing Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    What steps would you take to make an important decision on the job?

      As an employee, your decisions affect others. It's important to express to the interview team at Boeing that you recognize the weight of your responsibility, whether you are managing a team or leading by example within your organization. Write out the steps that you consider when making an important decision. Prepare yourself by thinking of examples of when you were faced with a difficult decision.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Whenever I am making an important decision, I question how the company will benefit. I also check to make sure the decision is in line with the company's values. It's important to consider how the decision will impact the company. I take steps to address these factors before I decide what needs to happen next."

      "When making an important decision, its important to get buy-in. Engage others in the know whether they would agree with the decision. I would consider the possible consequences, risks and value to the project ultimately to the company. So before making a decision, mitigate risks where possible, communicate with others involved, get buy-in and have a plan in place for possible outcomes - have a plan B."

      Kristine's Answer

      Great response! You show you would approach the decision carefully and you value the input of others. I reworded your answers slightly for clarity.

      "When making an important decision, it's important to get buy-in. I would engage others to know whether they would agree with the decision. I would also consider the possible consequences, risks, and value to the company. So before making a decision, I would mitigate risks where possible, communicate with others involved, get buy-in, and have a plan in place for possible outcomes, including a plan B."

      "In my last role, I had to make a decision as to whether to keep an employee. I was careful to ensure that I understood the context about the decision. I consulted those who would be affected by the decision to determine the most likely consequences. I then made the decision which was to terminate and recruit a new person. This went down well with the team and my boss."

      Lauren's Answer

      Great example; you sought several avenues to arrive at a final decision, which demonstrates tact. I would caution the way you explain “[consulting] with those who would be affected.” You don’t want this to be viewed as office gossip or discussing sensitive HR issues with the person’s coworkers versus discussing the situation with other team leaders and managers (which is acceptable).

      "There was a time when I need to weigh the pros and cons of terminating an employee. Time and sensitivity was needed to review the implications and arrive at the most logical decision. I explored all possible options, and consulted with proper staff. Ultimately, terminating the employee and hiring a new person was the right decision for staff culture and morale."
