    Ship Fitter Trainee Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied at a job fair when they were looking to fill 800 jobs. Over 8,000 people came to the event looking for a job. The first item they look for on your application is work history and how many jobs you've had and left within several years. If you had an unstable work history, you would not be sent to the next step. If you did advance, pending the outcome of 3 simple tests and passing the pre-employment drug screen, you were pretty much in. They were going to train everyone so experience wasn't as important as stability.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO.

    Interview

    Interview Process was pretty smooth sailing. I was interviewed by 5 people total, three people the first day, and two the second.They were very adamant to tell me that working their would not do anything for my public accounting hours required to become cpa certified.. I don't think that they know that public hours are only required for signing of on audits. Hence I believe this is why they did not choose me.. They figured I would leave as soon as I acquired passing scores on the four sections of my cpa. Wish they would've known that even working on industry qualifies as "general experience" oh well.. ya win some and loose some.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO (Norfolk, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the project manager in his office. He did a very good job of describing the company, the work they did, and the responsibilities I would have if I were to get the job. He asked only a few questions about my background and relied more on the two of us talking as if I were was going to be working there the next day. A tour of the workplace was also given, along with further explanations of the position's responsibilities. Overall I thought the interview was very relaxed and comfortable which led me to feel afterwards that it went very well.
