Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in October 2014.

Interview Details

Very relaxed interview. Did not have any technical question, all about programming habits - likes, dislikes. Know your resume and you will do well. Everyone I talked to was very nice, there was time left over at the end so my interview showed me around the building. Very cool to see the inner workings. Received an offer over the phone and via email two weeks after the interview.

    Interview Details

    They bring you to their most high tech facility, give a tour of products, and schedule a 2 on 1 interview. This is somewhat misleading because you may not work at the interviewing facility. Request a tour of your real office.

    Interview Questions
    • n/a...no technical questions although this was likely due to my transcript. They only ask tech questions to those they're not sure of.   Answer Question

    I didn't negotiate but probably should've

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online, took about 2 weeks for recruiter to call. She was nice, went over my resume and set up an phone interview. Phone interview was 1 hour very intense. Mainly went over resume, and ask in depth questions about projects I've worked on and also some behavioral questions. I was invited for a second in person interview later that week, was expecting a one one one however was met with a panel interview. They made me feel very comfortable and it was fairly straight forward and easy. Technical questions they asked were based on what is on your resume. It was my most difficult interviews of all the jobs I applied for however, it was due to being unprepared.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions they asked are derived on what you've listed on your resume. For me they went more into my projects and what programs I used and how I went about challenges.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    From the beginning the process was smooth, they contact me via phone and set up the interview right away. The day of the interview I did not expect I was going to be interviewed by really young people, one of them did not have to much knowledge of my degree, did not have any question for me. It was a pleasant experience after all.

    Interview Questions
    • I was ask about the courses I took back in college and what I did in a particular class, that have nothing to do with the position I was been interviewed for. I thought it was out of content, but I answer it.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Salary and working hours, they told to expect to work from 50 to 60 hours a week.

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for an initial interview, which was the basic interview which was with a HR. Basically just went over my resume, plans, what I was looking for etc. Got an e-mail for a second interview with an engineer. Had a problem scheduling the interview, but finally found one that works. Waited an entire hour after the given interview time but no call.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact with the company was through our school career fair. I did not receive an on-campus interview; however, after about a month I was invited to an on-site interview. Several other candidates attended as well. We were introduced to the company by several panels of employees (young and old). We were then put through two interviews. Each interview consisted of 2-3 interviewers in a small office. The interviews were very down-to-earth. There were standard H.R. type questions and several questions regarding project and job experience. Several of the candidates were asked very technical oriented questions. I myself was not.

    Interview Questions
    • [paraphrasing] "You are an electrical engineer. This is a software engineering position. Prove to me that you have what it takes to work here."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not attempt to negotiate. The initial offer was more than satisfactory.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got an email saying they had my resume in their database and wanted to schedule an interview. I interviewed with two team leads, which consisted completely of behavioral questions and went very well. Got a call back for a second interview with one of those team leads, plus two others, plus the department head. It was mostly a rehash of the first interview with the only technical question being about Unit Testing. The team lead that interviewed me both times said I did great and they would do my review, which was about 3 weeks ago. Haven't heard from them since.
