    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Rolling Meadows, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3 mechanical engineers. The job posting was incredibly vague and it was clear after about 30 minutes that my experience was in a different engineering subject than they were looking for. Got a facility tour at the end. The entire process from initial application to this point was cumbersome, as there were a couple of months in between each step.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and subsequently invited to participate in a phone interview with the mechanical engineering manager and senior mechanical engineer. The interview went very well until the senior ME started to ask questions. It was quite obvious he was trying to impress his boss. We went back and forth over a particular design question and lost track of the interview. Some questions that I felt were confidential were discussed in the open with my potential peers.

    Interview Questions

    • The standard tell me about yourself and some very specific mechanical design questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was offered an interview at a university job expo. The interview was at a hotel the day afterward. I was asked a series of behavioral questions and questions about my previous experience. The interview was reasonably easy, and my interviewer told me that I did a great job, and that I should expect to hear a positive result. I was told that I would hear back within a week, but wasn't given any contact information for a recruiter. I didn't hear back for two weeks. When I went to the Northrop Grumman Careers online support, I was told that they couldn't help me since I wasn't given a case number. When I finally did hear back, I was told that my skills were not needed.

    Program Cost Control Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Aldie, VA).

    Interview

    By far the best I ever had. The first interview was like an exam, the Manager went through my resume and everything was analyzed and discussed from education up to professional experience. The second session was with the PM which knew all my work history without having my resume in front of him! That, right there, spoke high volume that he was prepared! The whole process took like 3
    months, but they won't hire without having the background check completed. Also a drug test is required. The recruiter was very responsive be helpful, as well!

    When you arrive, you will meet your selection board (usually two or three people, including the supervisor of the position and a representative of Human Resources). The team leader will tell you what to expect, and will explain that the board will be recording your answers for later review. Don't let this recording process distract you—it’s a normal part of the interview and necessary to make a complete assessment later on.

    The board will then begin asking you a series of questions to assess your knowledge, abilities and personal suitability. These may include:

    Closed questions that demonstrate your knowledge by requiring a specific factual answer.
    Open-ended questions that are broader in scope and require you to work through the answer.
    Situational questions that describe a hypothetical situation and ask how you would proceed in those circumstances.
    Behavioural questions that ask you to describe a time in your own history when you dealt with a certain situation, and to explain how you dealt with it.
