    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Irving, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process similar to most corporations how ever their response time is abysmally slow. How their going to get enough people to staff the programs they are winning is a wonder.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Azusa, CA).

    Interview

    Was called out to the Azusa facility for an event where a tour and interviews were held for selected students. About 50 students showed up from all different California universities. We were broken into two groups and while one was touring the facility the other was being called for panel (two-person) interviews. Overall the vibe was laid back and professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Luis Obispo, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very friendly - business casual. Apply online, then you get called in for an interview and then you should be hearing back within a week. I will be interning with the systems and testing engineering department but was also offered a position in global operations. Global operations might be the best place for me but i picked systems in order to gain more experience on the technical side since i see myself veering away from it the farther along in my career i go.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    Professional recruiters. Well coordinated phone and onsite interview. Recruiters seem to be contractors. However, onsite interview experience was terrible. Four people have interviewed me for tow hours. During the process, some of interviewers were in and out as if there were some issues. It was very chaotic and confusing being asked same question by various people.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Very unprofessional offering practice - when I check back in for the status, the hiring manager simply said "if you hear back from us, then obviously job is offered." After a few weeks offer came, simply declined. Very poor communicators.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on their website to several jobs and after a month I heard back from a recruiter who set up a 30 minute phone interview. The recruiter didn't have much technical knowledge so it was a very general interview to make sure I met their pre screening requirements. About a week later they set up an in person interview with a hiring manager. It was very relaxed and low pressure of which was surprising because similar contractors have been very difficult.
