    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online four months before I got a call from HR to schedule an interview. EB flew me to Groton for the in-person interview. I got a tour of the shipyard, and met with four supervisors for my interviews. I also had lunch with someone who held a similar position to the one I applied for. It was a good experience and they have a great atmosphere. Be prepared to be patient for the entire interview process and don't plan to be anywhere until at least 4 pm if you have an interview process starting at 7 am. Also wear completely closed shoes if you want to tour the shipyard. They are very strict on safety, especially for touring groups.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was straight forward, took several hours. Involved meeting with 2 interviewers. Many good quality questions were asked, but interviewers were positive, and personable. Format was organized, no trick questions. Several technical questions were asked that I did not know the answer to, and indicated immediately that I wasn't familiar with the technology they were asking about, and thought it a better choice to indicate that I had no prior knowledge or experience with it.

    Mechanical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Groton, CT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for 4 spots in the ship signatures department (acoustics). It's a long day but it was managed pretty well so even by the end I wasn't excessively tired. All of the interviewers I met were pretty down to earth and didn't ask any impossible questions. Although it said it was an 8 am start it didn't really start until 8:50 but being there early is always a plus. After a tour of the Groton side you go back to the employment office and get put on a shuttle to go to the New London side. This is where almost all of the engineering work is done now and also where all of my interviews were held. You get an escort to the room and all of the interviews came to me so there is no hope of getting lost. The last interview took place while having a paid for lunch in the cafeteria. The food was pretty good. Dress code at EB is pretty lax and keep in mind there is a decent amount of walking outside but I wouldn't want to interview in anything less than formal attire. All in all I would say it was a relaxing day (comparatively) and that as long as you bring your things with you that there is nothing to worry about. Keep in mind that you may not know if you have the position for several weeks after the interview (3-4 in my case so they say).

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly just background questions from things they see on your resume or transcript (make sure to bring it if you are a recent grad). Only one department asked me any technical questions and for the most part its a pretty relaxing atmosphere.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 7 people! 5 of them were there in the conference room and 2 of them were over the phone. It was a good interview but very overwhelming because I didn't realize I was interviewing for 3 different positions at once.
    Just a note to anyone who applies there:
    When you upload your resume it will change format. So make sure you let them know you have the resume in the proper format at the interview, have enough copies for about 8 people.
