Interview

Out of state candidate so was flown in for an in person interview. It was an interview day for that campus so I met with many others around my age. Then had an hour long interview with a panel of engineers. All behavioral or general interest questions. No technical questions. Still waiting on results.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Prepare before hand and it will be less stressful.
    My interview was over the telephone.
    Took a while to get the offer ( about two weeks) and I had already gotten another offer, which I had to accept within three so I ended up not accepting.
