    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the management does pretty well at this, i think its worth stressing that we should continue exploring different ways we can have employees learn more about various sectors of shipbuilding. Each department is a completely new world.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Newport News Shipbuilding.

    Interview Details

    Too long ago. I don't really remember details, but in my case I don't think I found it to be exceptionally arduous. Was harder to get my resume seen. Once it was seen things moved along.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember. I do remember my perspective boss asking me if I could work in ambiguous conditions. You have to realize that once you get hired it is a very large complex place. Processes are complex, the deck plate work is complex, just getting around early on can seem complex. Be patient, try to involve yourself in as much as you can and 'eat the elephant one bite at a time.' It will take years in some cases for the puzzle to start looking like a real picture.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Make sure if you are a mid-career person that you get the leave time you deserve. They will try to cut you short if they can.
