    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Orbital ATK (Elkton, MD).

    Interview

    Spoke with a representative at university career fair. Interviewed on campus the next day. Heard back from the Elkton, MD branch about 2 months later and had a phone interview with two manufacturing engineers. They mainly talked about the position and asked me behavioral questions. Very easy going. They flew me in to interview in person three weeks later during which they gave me a tour of the facilities and told me more about what they do. I got a call the next week with an offer.

    I met a recruiter at a campus career fair, and was scheduled for an in-person interview the following day.

    Mechanical Engineer/Design Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Orbital ATK (Magna, UT) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for a design technician job online and was contacted about 4 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Basic STAR questions talking to 3 engineers, nothing technical. About 2 weeks later I received a request for an in-person interview in Magna, which was scheduled for about 10 days out. They paid for the flight/hotel/rental car and reimbursed my food expenses. In person interview was casual, 4 engineers (2 of the same) asking more STAR/resume questions. Seemed really like a time for me to ask questions. Nothing technical. Quick tour of the facility, and then I was off (less than 1 hour interviewing total). Got an offer 2 weeks after that for a Mechanical Engineer position, a better job than I had applied for originally, and had 1 week to decide.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Orbital ATK.

    Interview

    Interviewed following an on campus career fair the day after. Very conversational and simple interview with behavioral questions and simple resume check. Don't get too anxious if you don't hear back for a while. I interviewed in January and didn't hear anything back until almost April, but ended up getting the exact department and group I wanted to work with.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Laid back, interviewers were friendly definitely knew what they were talking about. Most questions seemed like they were made up on the spot. Thought I did okay but ghosted by my recruiter afterwards she never answered phone calls or emails.
