    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center.

    Interview

    I went into a room with four interviewers. They were very nice and asked STAR questions that are common. They also asked personality questions. It did feel a little intimidating since they were all on one side of the table while I was on the other side.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase; the pay scale was set.

    Student Trainee Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The deadlines for the application process are pretty strict so you really need to stay on top of the paperwork. They give the option for either a phone interview or an in person interview which was nice because I was able to do the interview without missing any class. After the interview you need to fill out tons of paperwork before you can continue with the process, I spent probably 5-7 hours working through the different forms.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Bethesda, MD) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Process was quick with no formal interview. 3 week process from phone call to first day employment. Human Resources called and asked if I could start in 3 weeks. Of course, I said yes. Overall, hiring process for interns is extremely easy and they really don't care because there is no agreement if they don't like you. They will deal with you for 2 or 3 months and send you off on your way after the internship. Fortunately, I was an intern they liked along with many others. Great people work throughout the warfare centers and want nothing but the best for you.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Panama City, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They fly you out but be aware of the fact that the whole process will take a lot longer than usual. They only deal in paper work. The HR people are bad at their jobs. They won't give you any idea about where you need to go and won't let you know when they'll get back to you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center in March 2015.

    Interview

    Easy, two departments out of four interviewed me on the phone. No real engineering questions, just wanting to get to know you. I got into MS and it was boring, writing calibration test procedures. it's better to start in private and retire here.
