    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.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Crane, IN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    They heard about me through my college's career services and contacted me through email. We set up a phone interview. During the interview they asked things such as: hobbies, strengths, weaknesses, what you'd like to work on at Crane, they give you an idea of what you'd be doing, they asked for a couple examples of projects you worked on, what's your focus in your engineering field, and to give examples of when you worked well with other people and were a leader. The interview lasted about 30-45 minutes and was very easy. After that it took a few months to get the paperwork done to hire me on. But that one phone interview is what gets you the job or not.
