    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Dahlgren, VA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    It was a brief telephone discussion about what they actually did. It was more of a question whether I was going to accept the position or not, nothing like a real interview where I get asked a series of questions pertaining to the job.

    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.

    Mechanical Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    This position was filled via a diversity program that matches college students with government jobs. I submitted my resume and filled out an application sometime in January. In March, I received a phone call from the supervisor of the position asking if I was still interested. I was and from there I was transferred to the HR division and I filled out the paperwork needed for the position. Since it was a government position, the process is pretty lengthy. At the end of the semester, I started my internship.

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

    Interview

    I randomly found the job on usajobs.gov and applied. Almost a month and a half later I get an email from HR saying that they want to setup an interview. Two weeks later I get the interview from two people people on the phone. It was mostly behavioral questions. Nothing technical or specific. Basically "What would I do in X situations" kinda stuff. Three weeks after the interview I was given the offer.

    Student Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
