    My interview lasted 2.5 hours and included a tour. I was interviewed by the supervisor of the position and the Facility Director. I heard about all the current projects and future planned projects. They were very pleasant and easy to talk to. They asked about my experience then I asked them specifics about their internal process.

    Interview Details

    Went through an email prescreen where I typed up answers to basic questions. The overall interview consisted of me sitting down with 4 employees who went around and asked me several questions. They asked what I knew about the company and how I had handled different types of situations in the past (like handling an issue working in a team). They also asked me my strengths and weaknesses. It was a basic, fair interview.

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    Straight-forward, two-person panel interveiw using a checklist.
    I was unable to answer one question rearding how the company specifically performed an industry-wide practice.
    My resume referenced plenty of related experience, so the off-script questions were mostly about my personality.
    They didn't tip their hand as to how I did, or how competetive the opening was.
    Both panelists were professional and friendly.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    two phone interviews, then an email questionaire, then put in front of customer, almost no support with how to handle the customer, no interaction with hiring manager despite several attempts which seemed to be a bother. meeting with customer was a disaster because of the lack of preparation by NG hiring manager. questions were all softball even though position was highly technical.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    You will be heavely screened by their HR department, If you actually make it to an interview you have a very good shot of getting a job. They screen candidates so heavely before they actually see the hiring manager that the candidates they send forward are more than likely going to get selected for something. I interviewed one time with a group of people and I was offered a postion the same day.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Did not do a phone interview. Recruiter called me and told me to prepare for a face-2-face interview with the hiring manager. Only net him for an hour in a private room in visitor center. He shared a lot about the project. He told me and the recruiter that it had been an excellent interview and he would let me know in three weeks. He never made a decision.
