    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and subsequently invited to participate in a phone interview with the mechanical engineering manager and senior mechanical engineer. The interview went very well until the senior ME started to ask questions. It was quite obvious he was trying to impress his boss. We went back and forth over a particular design question and lost track of the interview. Some questions that I felt were confidential were discussed in the open with my potential peers.

    Interview Questions

    • The standard tell me about yourself and some very specific mechanical design questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was a HackerX thing -- speed dating with this company and 7 others. This would have been preliminary to a more extensive interview. I did it mostly out of curiosity -- I had worked in aerospace and wondered what had changed. (Not anything as far as I could tell.) The jobs were all for developers working on or in support of jet fighter avionics.

    Met in a room with 4 other senior engineers. It's more of a conversation than a Q&A session. They all share experiences, stories, struggles, etc. about work.

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Rude interviewer. Tried to play the intimidating card. First question: What my old manager would say about me if he was to call. "Well I was up for promotion when I was laid off"... what else is there to say, if you want to know more about how my previous coworkers judged my work performance, call them yourself, I'll supply the numbers. Complete waste of my time. How about you call him for yourself buddy.. BEFORE THE INTERVIEW. NO TIME FOR GAMES HERE. If you want time out of my life working for you, how about some respect.
