    Program Cost Control Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was quite pleasant. I interviewed one on one with a member of the Project Cost team. They focused on the technical aspects of the position and questioned my knowledge of metrics that are fundamental to the job description.

    All in all it was a great experience.

    It has been several weeks (8) since I have heard back from the hiring manager, although my profile indicates "Under Consideration" on the NGC Career Website.

    From start to finish, I imagine this process will be around 3-4 months, possibly longer.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Linthicum, MD).

    Interview

    I was hired into the Professional Development Program which is a rotational program for new graduates. I had a pre-screen interview at my college campus in Pittsburgh and flew to Baltimore for more interviews before I was extended an offer. My understanding is that the hiring process has changed to lower the barriers for consideration.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on their career section of their website and got a call a couple weeks later from a recruiter, which included a couple of screening questions. I was then scheduled for an onsite interview a couple weeks later. The interview was very pleasant and the managers didn't grill on you much expect some basic programming concepts (oop) and some questions on your listed experience. All in all it was a great process. I got an offer the week after the interview
