I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
The shipyard is very proud to build quality ships, which engages the employees to want to do their best to build "good ships" for the sailors. As an engineer, there is always a sense of ownership for the project you are working on. The large company also provides the opportunity to learn different facets of shipbuilding through rotational programs. For those willing to apply themselves, there is always growth potential.Cons
The work in the shipyard shifts over time. In order to keep everyone employed, you may be pulled off your project to fill a position that has more budget. Depending on how vested you are in your project, this can be a disappointment.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Consider the impact to both a project and the engineer before pulling off an engineer, who is excelling on the project, to fill another role. This can make an engineer feel expendable. While this didn't happen to me, I witnessed it a few times.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Huntington Ingalls Industries in May 2013.Interview Details
The interviewer was congenial, asked standard interview questions, and was patient when he saw me struggling. The problem was that I was nervous, and my answers weren't very good.
When I called to follow up on the interview, he politely informed me that I wasn’t hired. From my experience, I know that this is uncommon. Most employers, after deciding not to hire you, prefer to ignore your attempts to follow up until you go away.
Even though Huntington Ingalls didn't hire me, I was impressed with their professionalism, and I would encourage others to apply.Interview Questions
