Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

Interview Details – I gave a recruiter my resume at a career fair. About a month and a half later I got an email to set up a phone interview. The interview was mostly behavioral with a few technical questions to get a feel for my technical background. About a couple weeks later I got a phone call saying that they were sending me an offer and I got it in an email later that day.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Software Engineering Intern Interview

Software Engineering Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2013.

Interview Details – I signed up for an on-campus interview with the company when they came for our university Career Fair, but "due to scheduling conflicts" I was given a phone interview (screen) with a recruiter. I thought it went very well and I was told that I would be "moving on" and my resume would be passed along to hiring managers of the departments I mentioned I was interested in.

Four weeks then went by and I heard nothing, but the recruiter had told me that hiring managers have real jobs, too, so it might take a while. I contacted my recruiter and was told my resume is still being sent around; after another three weeks, my email to the same recruiter has not been replied to.

Interview Details – Talked to the hiring manager through email until I received an interview. The interview wasn't too long or difficult. They asked me about past projects, and about Java since it was the language they used.

Carson, CA

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

Interview Details – Took us to onsite interview. There were two rounds. The first round was with an engineer that was working on their projects and the second one was with a manager. Very basic behavioral questions. Asked mainly questions from the resume and about your experiences. Other than that nothing particularly hard or technical. Interviewers were really nice and overall it was a good experience.

Interview Question – What are your strength and weakness?   Answer Question

Intern Engineer Software Interview

Intern Engineer Software
San Diego, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2009.

Interview Details – Hired through job fair at University of California - San Diego. Most of screening process appears to be done at the resume level, by the time I was brought in for an interview, it seemed to be only a formality. Very few technical questions asked, expectations for an intern are low, it seems.

Negotiation Details – I was pleased with the rate offered, and did not negotiate. It appears interns for salaries at this company are not negotiable, but I'd recommend for any other position.
