Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (El Segundo, CA) in December 2016.

Interview

The Hiring Manager and Staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating, which set a great tone for what the culture and workday environment would look like. However, after many weeks (7) and many phone and in-person interviews (including a four-hour session) I never heard back from anyone. I followed-up twice just to check-in, but received no response. I certainly understand if they chose another candidate, but I think it's a professional courtesy to at least let me know considering how far along the process I went-- not to mention the hours I had devoted to the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very nice people. However... I had multiple phone interviews, each lasting well over an hour. After finally making it to an in-person interview weeks later that lasted for four hours, I thought things were pretty strong in my favor. And yet, after missing work for the interview and spending many, many hours on the phone, it was like I dropped off the planet. I sent a few follow-up emails over the course of the next month, just to see if they had moved on to another applicant, but I received no response. I think that after this much time is spent in an interview process, the least they can do is send me an email saying "no thanks". But then, a month later-- I got another call saying that they would still like to consider me, which was great! After weeks and weeks of just a couple of follow-up emails, I finally got a casual note saying, "I'm sorry, there aren't any positions available right now." I think this is incredibly unprofessional and poor, especially from a company the size of Northrop.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Woodlawn, MD) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Try to get someone to refer you. They get a bonus and you get through the process faster. Still it takes months to actually start the job after the interview. In the interview, you're asked if you can use VIsio, ALM etc, which are the basic tools you should be able to use if you're applying any analyst position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in May 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute phone call mostly telling me about the job responsibilities. The phone interview seemed a little rushed with very few questions asked. The questions asked were basic behavior questions and not technical. HR takes forever to update their website. It was a great learning experience overall but did not get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (McLean, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me same day I submitted my application with several followup screening questions. Once sent, the recruiter responded 3 days later indicating the hiring manager would like to interview me in person. An interview was scheduled for one week later.

    The security instructions in entering the building was detailed to let me know what to expect.

    On the day of the interview, a panel of three people sat me in a conference room where they asked questions about my background and my experience. They were extremely friendly and professional. Toward the end of my interview they were honest that this position may not be the best fit for me, however there was another position in which I was more suited for.

    So a week later, I was called in for a second interview for the other position. The panel was two people indicating what the position would be like. Again very professional and very friendly.

    I heard back with a decision in less than 3 business days.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2009.

    Interview

    Applied on external job site, contacted by recruiter with offer to interview. Met with panel interviewers within one week, seven interviewers who asked 20-25 structured questions. Turned interview on to panel with questions that lasted thirty minutes and discussed culture, norms and daily work requirements, management styles and potential advancements. Guided interviewers to 'off track' questions that dealt wtih interviewer's personal work interest and their desired traits for a co-worker. Interviewers were nice and seemed to accept my answers to questions with hightened interest. All were animate in their reactions and gave back positive results. I came away feeling great. I really enjoyed the interview and the people. Lots of laughs.

    Received job offer within one week (via FedEx). 25% higher salary, very good benefits including continuing education.

    Everyone seemed in a good mood, upbeat and having no serious hangups during the interview.

    Within 4-8 months work environment changed as layoffs seemed iminent (2-6 months). Teammates seemed tense, anxious and worried. Meetings were tense with preditory actions prevalent. High drive to reduce costs with everyone expected to contribute 10-20% cost reductions.

    I received job offer from another company that didn't deal with defense matters and accepted. Slightly less monies but overall a better environment.

    Negotiation

    Congenial, not much negotiation...arrived at agreeable salary and benefits package.

    Depending on your skill level, and especially experience you can ask for a better salary and better educational benefits but over all the original offer should be sufficient. If you do great work during first year you can ask for better salary.
