I applied online - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2010.
Interview Details – One phone interview followed by a face to face in a room of 5 interviewers. It wasn't extremely technical nor difficult as I drove the majority of the questions. I got the impression that they just wanted to get to know me. The phone interview was much more difficult and was probably what got me in the door just to verify I was presentable and able to work with the client. In the phone interview, most of the questions were situational and asking how I handle certain situations.
Interview Question – They asked about my experience with agile and RUP methodoligies. Having negative experiences with both, and not being a good liar, I was forced to be honest about my experiences. In hindsight, I do think my honesty and ability to explain why my experiences were negative was what impressed my interviewers. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I asked for a small increase from the initial offer and received that bump, and the reply, within 24 hours of my request.

Two weeks later I was contacted for an on-site interview. The same individuals conducted the on-site.
Interview Question – I don't recall any questions that were "out there" or that I wasn't already fully prepared to answer. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I responded to the offer, which was an exact match to my initial "requirements" I had put on my application, with a counter and it was accepted. At the time I was very new to the process and there was little to no data on what I "should" be making so I way underbid myself and I'm not kind of paying for it since HR rules kick in and limit the annual increases according to pay bands, etc.
I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in June 2010.

First Recruiter then Recruitment Manager and then the Hiring Manager. Because of availability of different cross functional groups involved in interviewing, completion takes longer than anticipated.

Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in March 2010.
Interview Details – The more experience you are the more easier the interview is. Good manager can tell if you know what you're talking about. And if they're interested in you, it will probably take less than three day to get in touch with you about working with the company. Once hired, you go through normal process such as clearance if needed, take picture for badge in order to participate for orientation. Once you're done, your manager comes and take you and present you to your new group. From then on, training takes places and get familiar to the process because every job is different.

The abstract questions were along the lines of, "What do you think is your biggest weakness is?".
Interview Question – "What do you think your biggest weakness is?"
I always have trouble with this.

I've learned to just ask what the question is pertaining to.
In this instance they wanted to know professionally and personally. Answer Question
