    Interview

    Spoke to a recruiter at the career fair and got an on-campus interview. Interview was about 30 minutes long, half technical half behavior, but most of the questions were fairly softball. Technical questions were a mix of programming, OS, radar, and software development cycles.

    Interview

    it was in career event in DC>.
    When you arrive, you will meet your selection board (usually two or three people, including the supervisor of the position and a representative of Human Resources). The team leader will tell you what to expect, and will explain that the board will be recording your answers for later review. Don't let this recording process distract you—it’s a normal part of the interview and necessary to make a complete assessment later on.

    The board will then begin asking you a series of questions to assess your knowledge, abilities and personal suitability. These may include:

    Closed questions that demonstrate your knowledge by requiring a specific factual answer.
    Open-ended questions that are broader in scope and require you to work through the answer.
    Situational questions that describe a hypothetical situation and ask how you would proceed in those circumstances.
    Behavioural questions that ask you to describe a time in your own history when you dealt with a certain situation, and to explain how you dealt with it.

    Program Cost Control Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aldie, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Aldie, VA).

    Interview

    By far the best I ever had. The first interview was like an exam, the Manager went through my resume and everything was analyzed and discussed from education up to professional experience. The second session was with the PM which knew all my work history without having my resume in front of him! That, right there, spoke high volume that he was prepared! The whole process took like 3
    months, but they won't hire without having the background check completed. Also a drug test is required. The recruiter was very responsive be helpful, as well!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (McLean, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Required to complete entire employment application prior to interview; interviewed with potential manager. Interview lasted about 30 minutes. Questions were consistent with the job description, nothing off the wall. Probably more likely to hire someone at the low end of salary requirements (as is typical with government contractors).

    SCA Aircraft Mechanic III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Patuxent River, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Patuxent River, MD).

    Interview

    My interview was very simple, as I came into the location as an employee of Aerotek originally. However, the Grumman folks did the interview once they read my resume. I was asked very few aircraft specific questions, and mainly asked about my experience working with the E2-C Hawkeye. The night shift supervisor and deputy shop lead did ask one very specific question that only a person who has worked on the platform would know, which for this location is what they need, as the location deals in test and development of the advanced Hawkeye and true professionals are needed to keep up with the operational tempo they are handed each and every day.
