    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    Met different employees at various on-campus events. They were all engaging and helpful in helping me determine what area and positions I would be a good match for. After a career fair, got a call for an interview. Ended up interviewing with someone I had met previously at on-campus events. The time set aside for the interview was ~45 minutes and the atmosphere was friendly. The interviewer asked one or two technical questions and a few behavioral questions (describe a time you had a disagreement among your team and how it turned out, etc.). I definitely over-thought the technical question, but otherwise it seemed to go fine. At they end the interviewer informed me that there would be another round of interviews for chosen candidates.

    I did not hear back from them after the interview. Followed up ~1 month later and still did not hear back from them.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman in January 2015.

    Interview

    Spent months applying to different positions before I was called in for an interview. Check regularly at the status of your application and for new job posting because there are always new posting every time I check. The interview was nothing out of the ordinary, just make sure you're prepared with you're most up to date resume, wear a suit and be yourself. I was actually given the choice between two positions that I would be a great fit for but after talking to my interviewers further we established that one would be a better fit for me. I received a phone call the following day with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you prefer an analytical role or design role?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    My initial offer was exactly what I wanted, so I didn't try pushing for more. I generally don't take the first offer so if it's not what you were expecting then feel free to ask for more, the worst they can say is no.
