    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Azusa, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a referral link and was given an interview slot on my college campus, where I met with one of the hiring managers for the Azusa office. All of the questions were behavioral, not really going into any technical detail besides discussing technologies that would be useful to learn, such as Matlab. We went over my past experience, then talked about the professional development program (PDP). He asked why my GPA was low, but I was able to provide reasons why (having two jobs at the same time as school full-time) and show an upward trend in GPA every quarter since my freshman year, which he liked. At the end of the interview, he said he would recommend me for a position, given there were spots. Recruiter called soon after with a verbal offer, then written offer the week after.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview

    Was found on LinkedIn and flown out to interview at Lithicum Heights Maryland to interview for a beginner friendly Software Engineer lvl2-3 job. Interview talked about past experiences from jobs, concepts from operating systems course, and difference between an array and linked list. Was also asked the question on what is OO programming. No whiteboard or code writing necessary. No behavioral questions; purely technical high- level questions. Interview was laid back and insightful about the company.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple, It is okay if you do not know everything. I know sometimes you get nervous about the things they might ask during the interview, but just relax and say what you know. Usually they just want to know your thought process.
