    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orbital ATK in April 2018.

    Interview

    30 minute interviews with five people consecutively. Each person had their own set of questions usually relating to what I listed on my resume. Was for an entry level position so only was asked about soft skills. Any technical questions were easy because they asked me to clarify a process I used on my resume.
