    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process happened very fast. I submitted an online application on a Wednesday evening and received a telephone call the next afternoon to set up an interview the following Tuesday. I of course showed up 10 minutes early and chatted with a gentleman while waiting for the interview to begin. As I was lead into the interview room there were four chairs. I met the man who called me and set it up and to my surprise the gentleman I had been chatting with and another female (all employees) were all in the interview with me.The interview was very straight forward. I wasn't asked the typical "tell me about yourself" "what do you know about the company" questions. I was asked about my experience with specific systems and to what extent I had utilized them. Overall from the time I got there and left it took about 50 minutes. It turns out that the person I had been making small talk with would be my supervisor if hired and the person who set up the interview is his boss. On the way out I was able to ask more questions and talk more with the person who would be my boss. I was told that they would be making a decision about the position the following week after all the interviews were completed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    I had a three person panel interview. It was very helpful at the begining because they took the time to explain their organization and current challenges. The interview began with the standard "Tell me about yourself" question. The follow-on questions were focused on getting to know me and better understand my skill set. There were a couple of behavior based questions and a few technical questions (tell me about trends in the industry...). Overall, it was straight forward and enjoyable.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview was scheduled at the SWE Conference and it was pretty informal. I interviewed with several engineers at different departments and each was very courteous. Each engineer wanted to make sure that I was a good fit for their team and if I wasn't a good fit for their team they referred me to another team where my qualifications fit better. At the end of the interview, the systems engineering manager stated that they would be extending an offer within the next two weeks; now, I am currently in the hiring process.
