    Interview

    Easy and fast, talked to two guys and instantly got the job. They were laid back and chill during the interview. Don’t be nervous , just go in there and be honest with them.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Completely unprofessional, I showed up and they didn't even now who I was (called me a different name). They main interviewer smelled like a pack of Marlboros and was asking me completely unrelated questions about sport teams and was literally basing my interview on that. They didn't come prepared, they didn't have my resume on hand or any job related questions ready for me. Hard to believe coming from a defense contractor who I thought held high standards, but I guess not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO (San Diego, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed Q&A with a team member first, standard questions in a cut and dry "recorded" fashion. Very little interpersonal interaction, the person just read questions and typed out answers. Second, I met with department head for a more conversational interview.

    Ship Fitter Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
