    Industrial Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodland Hills, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Woodland Hills, CA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual, like having a conversation with 3 people. The questions were a blend of behavioral and technical, mostly asking to elaborate on projects l've completed in the past. The panel interview was conducted over zoom.

    After the interview, the status on my application changed from "interview" to "completed". I assumed this was the decision process. After 2 weeks or so, I reached out to the recruiter for a follow up, no response. 1 week later, my application changed to "No longer under consideration".

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redondo Beach, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Redondo Beach, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Was scheduled for an in-person interview within a couple of weeks. Showed up for the interview and waited with security for over an hour before leaving because my interviewer was 'out of office' as recruiting mistakenly scheduled my interview for the wrong day. Rescheduled the interview for two weeks later. The second attempt, the interviewer was sick, so candidates had to interview with other project managers that were on site. Interview was very informal as a result, and only basic resume questions were asked. The interviewer told me to expect to hear back in a couple of weeks; it took almost two months to get the decision. Recruiting at this company is a disorganized and unprofessional mess, especially if you're applying online. Don't waste your time waiting for NGC and keep recruiting for other companies regardless of how well your interview went.
