    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    They bring you to their most high tech facility, give a tour of products, and schedule a 2 on 1 interview. This is somewhat misleading because you may not work at the interviewing facility. Request a tour of your real office.

    • n/a...no technical questions although this was likely due to my transcript. They only ask tech questions to those they're not sure of.   Answer Question

    I didn't negotiate but probably should've

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from NGC about a position I applied for so that I can set up a time to do a formal phone interview. During the call I spoke to 5 people in a conference call in which I was asked a series of typical interview questions. After outlining my experiences and hopes for my career they thanked me and told me they would keep in touch.

    I got another call from them about 3-4 weeks later and they proposed flying me out for an interview in person. They arranged a rental car as well as a hotel and I drove up to the facility on the day of for another interview. The interview was rather informal, I got a tour of the facility as well as got to sit down with some of my future coworkers. No complex questions, they were looking to see how well I would fit with the group.

    After the second round I got a call about 2 weeks later offering me the position I am holding today.

    Interview Questions
    • No overly difficult questions, just answered everything sincerely and passionately which gave off a good vibe.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
