    Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Groton, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton, CT) in January 2018.


    The process took 2-3 months. I applied online and waited to here back from them. I received a call asking to come in for an on site interview. They offered to pay for travel and paid for a hotel in Mystic which was nice.

    Interview Day:
    You park near the human resources department in the EB parking lot and go in to get your pass. The day was scheduled out for a tour of the shipyard which was awesome and they have strict no phone policy for security purposes. After the tour you come back and wait a little bit and do some paperwork with your HR rep. You then take a shuttle to the New London location and you will be picked up by your recruiter at the main desk. After the interview you talk with one of the engineers in the department and go have lunch in the company food court (paid for by EB). Once you are done with lunch they send you on your way back to the HR department to do a little more paperwork and on your way you go.

    Interview: The interview took about an hour and was laid back and was used to get a feel for how you are as a person. Went over my resume and asked questions about projects and over what EB does to an extent (they can't say a lot due to security reasons).
