    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was extremely short for such a competitive program, with only one interview, which was a phone interview with four senior members of management in several sections of my division. They asked fairly detailed questions about each part of my resume, and wanted to know a lot about my relevant experience.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    This company cultures was presented both times in the in the two interviews before receiving the job. They displayed a lukewarm attitude represented by wavering questions about my credentials and work experiences however, both interviews were conducted professionally and proficiently.
    I was given a chance to walk through the office and took a visual survey of the employees and they looked content and was talking to each other. I did feel like it was not a subdued place to work but I received the impression the people just put in their eight hours and go home.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and in about a month I received a call to set up a phone interview date and time. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and it was set-up conference style- with three people taking turns asking me questions. They explained what was required of me as an intern, and what a day-to-day looked like. Questions were very typical.

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very smooth easy process. Met recruiter at a student leadership conference, referred me to apply online. I applied online and was contacted a couple weeks later for an initial phone screen where I was asked very simple questions ("Why do you want to work at Northrop?" etc, nothing strictly behavioral/technical but more of a just get to know/chit-chat with you. Might have been a special case because I had met the recruiter a couple times personally). Was told to expect a hiring manager to contact me within 3-4 weeks, but didn't hear back until 10-12 weeks later. I let them know I had another offer on the table and was scheduled for a phone interview the next day with panel (well, 2 people). They were direct potential bosses and asked about my previous work experience (they were very interested in my undergrad research which was relevant). Dug deep into my research work asking questions about it, but there were no random unrelated technical questions. Asked one or two behavioral questions. Everyone was super friendly and really nice all-around.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if you have a project deadline coming up, and a team-mate (who is the only one with the skills to complete his portion) has repeatedly said he would have his part done by "next week" but several weeks have passed and he has not finished yet?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I attempted to negotiate slightly higher based on another offer I had. Director of Talent Acq. for my sector met with me personally on a school visit and explained to me that offer was non-negotiable but they really wanted me to come on-board. Offer was definitely a fair offer though. Everyone was very friendly all-around

    Applied online in spring for the following summer. Got a call to schedule an interview. Interview was with three people: Hiring manager, and two other managers for two different departments. Reviewed and asked questions about items on the resume, then asked "Why are you the right candidate for the position?". I only brought up one character trait when I should've been bringing out multiple traits (i.e strong work ethic, dedication, drive, passion ,etc)
