College Technical Intern Interview

College Technical Intern
Clearfield, UT

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had one interview with a panel of five interviewers. They asked the typical expected behavioral questions--"Tell me about a time when you had a difficult problem..., Tell me about a time when you had leadership..., etc. They asked me about relevant coursework and time management. The interview lasted about 40 minutes. The interviewers were congenial and engaged. They took notes throughout and gave me a schedule of when to expect to hear back about the position--whether yea or nay.

Interview Question – The questions were as expected: behavioral questions in regards to teaming, leadership, time management; and questions relevant to the statistical position such as coursework and analytical skills.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in May 2014.

Interview Details – Contacted for an interview about 4 weeks after applying online. Interview was over the phone with 3 NG employees: a manager and two engineers. The interview was very conversational and comfortable - just asking questions about my resume, previous projects/internship, etc. No technical questions really, just asking what technical skills I had and how I used them to solve various projects.

Interview Question – Nothing weird, just typical "tell me about yourself" stuff   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation

San Diego, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in May 2013.

Interview Details – Went on 3 interviews prior to this one from which I was hired. I'm a 20 yr retired enlisted Navy vet. I believe I presented myself well, however I think that I was my in the Navy as a supervisor that was my downfall for the previous interviews. I think they were looking for someone less used to being in a supervisory position.

College Technical Intern Interview

College Technical Intern
College Park, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2011.

Interview Details – My interview (for the College Technical Intern position at Northrop Grumman) was unlike many other tech firms' interviews. The company really focuses on well-rounded personality -- meaning they're more interested in your ideas, visions and capability than your knowledge from classes. I had two interviewers; both of them asked me behavioral/personality questions, but there was a subtle difference in those questions.

Interview Question – What made you decide to attend the current university?   Answer Question
