    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Thornton, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal interview process. Conversational and not stressful. Interviewers were not well prepared and tended to let the candidate take the lead in the interview. Panel consisted of a hiring manager, a technical lead, and an accounting representative.

    RF Sensor Systems Engineer IV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Cincinnati, OH) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Met with 6 different people, individually. Spent about 60-90 minutes with each answering predominantly the same questions. Small tour of the building, lunch provided. Beware that they may ask you for an interview even though they have a candidate chosen already. Apparently, they work under a quota-type system. They'll have you out to the location for almost an entire day and then eliminate you from the candidate pool based on something they've known about for months before the interview.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    This was a few years back, but the process was relatively easy. I met with the 2 hiring folks for about an hour. I was given an offer days later. On boarding was a little difficult but considering the employer and business it should be expected.
