    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in April 2017.

    Interview

    Process was very quick and professional, but was not a super personal experience.

    I was referred to this position by a current employee, and within two days got an email from an in-house recruiter setting setting up a time for an on-site interview for me at an hiring event the following week.

    The interview went very well, I was well prepared (as I am slightly overqualified for this position). It was with two managers for the role I was interviewing for. They were very friendly and personable, and seemed excited to speak to me and about the company in general.

    I really like that NG has a lot of room for growth from lower positions and seems to treat employees very well. They also offer great employee benefits, and allow for movement to other locations.

    Engineer Interview

    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.

    Electrical Design Engineer II Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Melbourne, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied for a position in Melbourne, FL. The recruiter called me and wanted to setup a video interview. He asked what locations I would consider (they were hiring in Florida, Oklahoma, and California), I told him I was really only interested in Florida. We set up the interview, all went pretty well. No technical questions, only behavioral questions. I felt like I did really well. I was contacted by the recruiter about 10 days later, he said they weren't interested. I asked if he could find out why (just so I would know what I should try to improve on). He came back a few days later and said they weren't hiring in Florida, only Oklahoma and California. I told him I would consider Oklahoma if the offer was right. About a week later I heard back from the recruiter saying they didn't have any positions in Oklahoma available.

    It seemed like there was another reason I wasn't considered and they just wouldn't give me the truth. I would rather receive some constructive criticism rather than them beating around the bush about why they weren't offering me a position.
