    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portsmouth, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Navy (Portsmouth, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applying online was the hardest part. Interviews start as phone interviews before the meet up. They will ask basic questions, mostly about your experiences. They seem to be looking for passion and drive. At the face to face interview, they will give you a tour to unclassified areas and tell you about the job. They won't ask many techinal questions, however they will expect you to prove some knowledge by how well you ask them questions during the tour and meetings with various personel. After that its a waiting game.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ridgecrest, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Navy (Ridgecrest, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed at Navair in Ridgecrest, CA. Overall, it was pretty interesting. Ridgecrest is absolutely small-town living, which I wasn't opposed to. I was there all day, but still didn't see a majority of the base. Seemed like a mix of really interesting stuff, and some boring projects too. No technical questions at all, which is generally a bad sign. If you aren't asked technical questions, don't expect to do technical work because clearly it isn't that important to the job. Was offered $62,500

    Interview Questions

    • All basic behavioral stuff. Explained some things on my resume too.   Answer Question
