    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    The interviews were strange because I felt over-prepared. They were incredibly easy to talk to and were very relaxed on question asking. I had a phone interview and in-person interview happening simultaneously, therefore, it was a bit different than average.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman (Melbourne, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Standard Process - Applied online, contacted several weeks later by email stating the hiring manager would like to conduct an in person interview. Flew to job site and met with hiring manager, a program manager and two other employees in a group/panel interview.

    The manager spoke for several minutes about the company and what position I was interviewing for. He then asked me to talk about my experiences relating to the position. After a few minutes I hit a couple of buzz words and the manager asked pointed questions about that topic. After answering those, I was asked about requirements specific to the product. A few more questions and answers and I was shaking hands.

    It was very short and directed. (It was scheduled to be short.) No time to get comfortable or ramble.

    Posted this too soon after the interview to be notified...checking online status for an update.

    Average Interview

    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.
