    Aeronautical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redondo Beach, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Redondo Beach, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    This was part of their "Hiring Event," which is a new process whereby Northrop invites hundreds of candidates to interview in one day. There was a 50 minute technical interview (one-on-one in my case, though some had panels of two or three), followed by a non-technical interview. The technical interview was very focused on going through the resume. There was also a short tour offered.

    Pretty standard interview. Asked about previous experience, why I wanted to leave my old job, etc. No real technical "challenge" questions. If you have ever interviewed for a position with a defense contractor before, it is very much the same.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was more like "used car salesman" and not really engaged in the interview. Did not present compelling employment brand, attitude was "hey we're Grumman" you're lucky we're talking to you.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, KY
    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    Upon arrival I was greeted before I even hit the receptionist desk. I was shown the break room and told I could help myself to a drink or snack. Few minutes later I was led into my interview room and the hiring managers were waiting to interview me. Most of the questions were very typical. What do you do now, what have you done in the past, where would you like to go, etc. HR kept in pretty good touch with me throughout the whole process. The only negatives about the process were (1) I noticed everyone wears a long sleeve dress shirt and tie. (2) As soon as our time was up I was cut off. I was literally in the middle of asking one of my questions and was interrupted to tell me our time was up. (3) I was not given reimbursement for my travel expenses.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen. Very basic questions surrounding experience as it relates to position. No behavioral or technical questions. The recruiter simply checked to see if I met the basic qualifications for the position and then scheduled a second phone interview with hiring manager \team. I declined the interview because I was not interested in the position after getting further details from the recruiter.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    The recruiting manager interviewed me over the phone for 30 minutes and then I went in for the in-person interview in Colorado Springs. Had to drive there from 120 miles away. The project manager was very pleasant but the technical interview was very difficult as the technical management asked questions many graduate students do not know. They seemed that they were unimpressed and had already had a guy that they were going to hire.
