    I have been working at Newport News Shipbuilding full-time

    Pros

    Company is very large with lots of different jobs available.

    Cons

    Seems it is hard to move up via promotions as compared to Norfolk Naval which has automatic pay increases.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newport News Shipbuilding (Newport News, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in early July 2017. I was not contacted for an interview until early August. Their job descriptions are vague so you are not sure which area you will be provided administrative support in. I had a phone screen with the recruiter, then later that day I was called to schedule an interview. You have to arrive early for the interview. I filled out all this paperwork while waiting for the interview. Then one of the jnterviewers came to pick me up for the interview. We walked a very long way to get to the building & I was wearing heels & a dress on a hot summer day. I was asked twice what I knew about the company. One of interviewers spoke the most the other seemed not interested. I thought I gave good answers but when he shook my hand afterwards he said thank you for your interest. That last line seemed like I wasn't getting the job. Reflecting on the interview it there were some clues that maybe I was interviewing for a job that was already promised to someone else which is terrible considering I wasted a day off work for the interview. I was there for 3 hours. Considering it is now 3 weeks later I assume I didn't get the job even though the recruiter told me they email you if you didn't get the job.
