    Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport, RI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Naval Undersea Warfare Center (Newport, RI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I handed out my resume at a job fair and received a call about two weeks later asking if I'd like to interview for a position. Just over a week after the phone call I interviewed at NUWC. Personnel from several departments sat in on the interview and asked basic questions about my experiences and training. A good deal of time was spent by each interviewer explaining their department and how I might fit in. The interview process was very relaxed and the interviewers were helpful in answering the questions I had about the job and NUWC in general. I'm currently awaiting an offer. I was told processing the paperwork for an offer letter could take six to eight weeks.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Naval Undersea Warfare Center (Providence, RI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Went to their Spring Recruitment Event and talked to various departments specified by a code and number. (ex. code:1234) Got a call the next day. Interview conducted over the phone with three people.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly pretty standard interview questions. Some behavioral, some experience based, a few knowledge testing questions. Apparently they normally hand out a cheat sheet of questions to think about, but because my interview was over the phone, I did not receive it until after the interview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Naval Undersea Warfare Center in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had two interviews for pathways engineering internship positions and neither had technical questions. They just asked typical interview questions that come up when you search google. One interview was on the phone and the other was in person at a building outside their facility. I should have dressed more formal for the in-person interview. I just wore a button down and khakis but I should have worn a suit.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Naval Undersea Warfare Center (Middletown, RI) in February 2013.

    Interview

    There was no interviewing process for the internship position. I had to just submit a paper application to the center, and they responded with that I received the position. The application has essay type questions that replace a 1:1 interview. Really pay attention to the small details they are looking for.

    Research Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Naval Undersea Warfare Center (West Bethesda, MD) in December 2011.

    Interview

    First had an on campus interview where the questions were the general questions: 1) Describe a time when you were on a team. 2) Describe a time where you had to resolve a conflict. Then after passing that I had an onsite interview, it was one of those full day events where we got a briefing of all the departments, then they gave us a lab tour, then we had interviews with groups. These were 1:1 interviews, they all went very well (the number of groups you interview with varies between people and all depends on your previous experiences etc... Just because you have more doesn't mean you'll get the job). In those 1:1 interviews I was asked to describe my thesis project a bit, my career goals, what i'm looking for in a job, they didn't ask any nontechnical questions. I'm still waiting to hear back from them (Glassdoor didn't have an option to choose so I chose no offer).
