Software Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Employee

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Met with three two managers and two software engineers. Really pleasant experience, they were mostly interested about my experiences in undergrad, and the courses I took. Asked a few technical questions that were out of the scope of my education such as the software life cycle, but I prepared for these questions ahead of time and nailed them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Fairfax, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email two days after my application for an in-person interview. The interview consisted of four Northrop Grumman engineers who probed my knowledge and experience with the development process. Questions were more geared towards handling development in a team environment rather than personal programming knowledge (and rightfully so).

    The interview clocked in at just under an hour. Be prepared to discuss and elaborate on specific experiences as you have listed on your resume. If you have experience through internships or college projects, refresh your memory on specific techniques that you utilized.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Orlando, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    They contacted me via email and asked me to come in for an interview in a day or two. It was really comfortable, lasted about an hour. They just asked about my past experience. Told me they would let me know if I need to come back for a second interview. That was over a month ago and still no response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Redondo Beach, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through my school's career fair. They contacted me for an onsite interview. Very professional about communicating the process.

    The interview itself was great. They were very friendly and allowed the interviewees time to socialize and relax beforehand with refreshments.

    I ended up choosing another company that more closely matched my career goals, but the whole process with Northrop has left me with a very positive impression of the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    Applied online through the job site and was contacted by HR requesting a phone interview. Phone interview was brief (~30min), and a couple weeks later was followed by an on-site panel interview (also short, ~1 hour). The whole process was very quick, and actually pretty laid back. I wouldn't describe any part of the process as stressful.
