Application

    Interview

    Went through an email prescreen where I typed up answers to basic questions. The overall interview consisted of me sitting down with 4 employees who went around and asked me several questions. They asked what I knew about the company and how I had handled different types of situations in the past (like handling an issue working in a team). They also asked me my strengths and weaknesses. It was a basic, fair interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    Straight-forward, two-person panel interveiw using a checklist.
    I was unable to answer one question rearding how the company specifically performed an industry-wide practice.
    My resume referenced plenty of related experience, so the off-script questions were mostly about my personality.
    They didn't tip their hand as to how I did, or how competetive the opening was.
    Both panelists were professional and friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    two phone interviews, then an email questionaire, then put in front of customer, almost no support with how to handle the customer, no interaction with hiring manager despite several attempts which seemed to be a bother. meeting with customer was a disaster because of the lack of preparation by NG hiring manager. questions were all softball even though position was highly technical.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    You will be heavely screened by their HR department, If you actually make it to an interview you have a very good shot of getting a job. They screen candidates so heavely before they actually see the hiring manager that the candidates they send forward are more than likely going to get selected for something. I interviewed one time with a group of people and I was offered a postion the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me what you did in the Army that can translate to what you can do for me?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They really didnt negotiate, they have so many people that apply if you turn it down they just move onto the next person.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (El Segundo, CA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    Did not do a phone interview. Recruiter called me and told me to prepare for a face-2-face interview with the hiring manager. Only net him for an hour in a private room in visitor center. He shared a lot about the project. He told me and the recruiter that it had been an excellent interview and he would let me know in three weeks. He never made a decision.
