    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Linthicum, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Linthicum, MD) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted through linkedin to attend a hiring event. I was given a time frame of 6 hours and was able to choose an hour slot to attend the event. Once I got the event there were a lot of people there. There were those that were very young and those who were older. There was a big mix of people with different experiences and they tried their best to find you a position where your skills would be used and find everyone a job. I met with two engineering managers and they both had different roles in the company. The main thing they asked were the experiences Ive had, the projects Ive worked on and why I wanted to come work here. Overall it was a great experience, very laid back interview. None of the questions were difficult to answer. It seemed like they wanted to get your personality and see if you would fit in the company, but also they wanted to see if your skills applied, which im sure if you are able to get an interview or invited to a hiring event you should have some type of skills that would fit in their ballpark.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Linthicum, MD).

    Interview

    I was hired into the Professional Development Program which is a rotational program for new graduates. I had a pre-screen interview at my college campus in Pittsburgh and flew to Baltimore for more interviews before I was extended an offer. My understanding is that the hiring process has changed to lower the barriers for consideration.

    Test Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Baltimore, MD) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back from a HR representative a few weeks later. Very friendly and had a good conversation regarding my resume and my interests. Told I would be getting an interview with the hiring manager but didn't hear back from her until I contacted her first about a month later and then had an interview scheduled at the location the next week. There was a bit of a mix up about the location of my interview so we got started a little late but it was a pleasure meeting with everyone. I was interviewed by the manager, a newer employee and a senior employee and like many have said, it was more of a conversation. I kinda of told them everything about me at the beginning and everything else after that was just following up to things I already said and comparing their experiences to my own. After this I was shown around where I would be working and got to meet about everyone I would be working with. I left with a smile on my face as I really loved the place and everyone who worked there. Heard back from the HR rep a few days later and was told I would get an offer but had to be transferred to another and received my offer 2.5 weeks after my interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Baltimore, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Met an engineer during the career fair of an IEEE conference. Described my somewhat unique situation and emailed her so she would get some prospects for me. I took nearly a whole month before the HR person finally arranged an interview for a standard internship (not what I was looking for).

    Finally, had a phone interview with 2 separate engineering managers. They each took turns asking questions related to their line of work.
    Just basic questions about the concepts for and things I have done.
    Just be sure to review your field vocabulary and the basics of what you know, so that you don't get caught up on just the name of something.
