    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (El Segundo, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I actually went through the PDP hiring process, but since I wasn't graduating the following year they interviewed me for a summer internship position. They do a security check in the beginning and brief you and the rest of the people on the whole process and the program itself. I interviewed with 4 different groups of people (3 groups of 2 and one guy by himself). The interviews varied from kind of hard to pretty laid back. They seem interested in knowing whether or not you can work in groups or what you would do in situations where you are a team leader. Of course they will ask you about a lot of the stuff that is on your resume. The more projects you have, the better. Also, they provided lunch which wasn't that great but whatever it was free.
