I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in November 2013.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by two managers for each of the positions I was being considered for. After they described each job they asked me which one I would prefer. After I chose the more technical side the manager for the job I chose began to ask me about 8 or 9 technical questions from the info on my resume. After that they asked me if I had any questions and the interview ended. It was very short to be honest and it seemed as though they had already made they're minds up before the interview started.
Interview Question – The technical questions were my hardest issue I would say because I said that most of my experience with the technology was beginner or in a classroom setting. I didn't believe this would be an issue because the job required less than a year of experience online. Answer Question

Interview Details – The interview process was great. Upon review of my resume, an HR Representative contacted me for a date and time to interview. I met with him briefly, then met with the Sales Manager and a couple of members of the sales team. I heard back fairly quickly that I would be receiving my offer letter and instructions to complete the mandatory drug screening.
Interview Question – There weren't any really difficult questions during this interview, as I have experienced in others. It was straight-forward, experience-based, position-based, and professional. No "if you were a tree" type of questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The base salary offered was an increase from my previous position so I was satisfied at the time. However, I would always advise at least a little bit of negotiating without being greedy or pushy.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2013.
Interview Details – This being my first interview while transitioning out of the military, I had no idea what to expect. When I sat down and interviewed with the hiring manager for a job I was currently doing in uniform, it seemed to go well. The hiring manager acted like my friend and everything seemed like it would work out in my favor. I was told I would hear back from the interviewer in few days, but it took over two weeks to hear anything and it was simply that I was no longer in consideration and I would be contacted by the company. I was never contacted by the company. During the whole interview process the hiring manager acted as if it was a foregone conclusion that the job was mine.
Interview Question – There was no difficult or unexpected question. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2013.
Interview Details –
NGC is a big company and it shows. You don't really have an offer until you have a written one in hand - even if the recruiter says they're going forward with an offer and you'll see it in a few days.
The long version:
Two recruiters told me that they wanted me to interview for three NGC positions. My first two interviews went so well that one recruiter advised me to abandon the third lead. One recruiter emails me on a Thursday to tell me that they're going forward with an offer and that I should hear something early the next week.
I didn't hear anything for two weeks after I was told I would be getting an offer in a few days. I delayed accepting another offer to give NGC a chance to follow through on their promised offer. My emails/voicemails to the recruiter went unanswered.
I eventually had to give up on NGC based on the recruiters' lack of response. I accepted another offer and courteously informed all my POC at NGC that I am withdrawing my interest. Only then did that job-offering recruiter reply back to tell me that they filled the position internally.
Since I had already withdrawn, I cannot fathom any professional purpose justifying their telling me that they have selected another candidate. (you didn't really withdraw your interest, we rejected you!) That information would have been relevant and professional before I withdrew. Instead, the recruiter ignored me while I tried to give them consideration with another offer in hand.
Everybody in the interviews themselves were very nice, pleasant, and professional. My negative experience came afterwards with the recruiters and, possibly, the hiring managers.
In theory, I had three leads, two very interested hiring managers, and one offer of employment. In reality, I had bad communication, recruiters not returning my calls, a false job offer, and a spiteful response telling me that my withdrawal was moot because I would not have been hired anyway.
Interview Question – Nobody interviewing me was at/above my level of knowledge. The interview questions were actually their current problems and my answers seemed like they were more like "free consulting ideas" than an evaluation of my abilities and experience. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2013.
Interview Details – Interview scheduling was fast (1 week) I was notified 3 days after the interview that they were considering an offer. 10 days later, I was given the official offer letter. The company has excellent HR and recruiting staff that guided me throughout the entire process.
Interview Question – All questions were about previous experiences and management methods I had used. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer was good. Did not negotiate
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied via my university's career center and received a confirmation email almost immediately. The next step was a brief phone interview to establish contact. My point of contact then emailed me a list of questions and I was subsequently invited to interview on site.
There were eight individuals in the afternoon rotation. We were given a tour of the company and then proceeded to meet with the program managers who presented a brief powerpoint on the company and the position. Four of us split off to do 30 minute individual interview with four panels of two middle-age employees while the other four stayed behind and were introduced with current PDPs. We switched after two hours and were dismissed after that.
Everyone was very laid back and the interview process was an overall pleasant experience.
However, it was one of my first interviews, so I still didn't have the interview formula down. A week later, I received a call from my recruiter notifying me that the selection was very competitive and they were going to move on without me.
Interview Question – Typical behavior interviews, and an occasional question about your familiarity with Microsoft Excel, Visio, and Project. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2013.
Interview Details – Hiring process was a piece of cake. Interview consistent of fair questions regarding my work experience. I was never put on the spot by a question. In addition, all hypothetical questions asked were fair and the intent was to get a feel for how the candidate would react in certain situations. All in all a most pleasant experience.
Interview Question – The most difficult question would be what is my worst mistake and how did I learn from it? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase took no more than 30 days. Just a bit of back and forth and then the final offer.
