    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I checked periodically on my job page to see if my application status had changed. After 2 months, the status changed from "under consideration by recruiter" to "under consideration by hiring manager", but I never received a phone screen or email. And about a month later, my status changed to "Interview". Several days after seeing the update, I was sent an email by my recruiter with instructions for a phone interview.

    The hour-long interview was relaxed and not very demanding, but I was asked a bevy of typical interview questions. I recommend others study their answers to those questions, and to make sure they convey to the interviewers why they'd be a good fit with Northrop Grumman. I was given lots of good feedback during the interview because they could tell how prepared I was.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a random call one day about 5 weeks after I applied. The recruiter called me and asked me if he could ask me a few technical questions. This was a almost like a pop quiz because I was not expecting an interview. After telling him I wasn't expecting it, he just told me he was just gauging my knowledge without interview preparation. Overall, it was a pretty easy interview, more about experiences and conceptual questions instead of having to write code.

    Interview Questions
    • C++ questions regarding object oriented programming, asked basic conceptual questions about stacks, queues, STL. did not have to write code, talked about past experience, interests in software, basically gauged knowledge of code and software   Answer Question

    Lead Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne, FL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northrop Grumman in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Standard Process - Applied online, contacted several weeks later by email stating the hiring manager would like to conduct an in person interview. Flew to job site and met with hiring manager, a program manager and two other employees in a group/panel interview.

    The manager spoke for several minutes about the company and what position I was interviewing for. He then asked me to talk about my experiences relating to the position. After a few minutes I hit a couple of buzz words and the manager asked pointed questions about that topic. After answering those, I was asked about requirements specific to the product. A few more questions and answers and I was shaking hands.

    It was very short and directed. (It was scheduled to be short.) No time to get comfortable or ramble.

    Posted this too soon after the interview to be notified...checking online status for an update.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiters at a campus career fair and left a good impression, making sure to pick up a business card after meeting. Within a week I received a call about setting up an interview. The interviewer was friendly and asked about everything on my resume. For some of the projects he asked a little bit more about some of the technical details.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    It was all very professional and polished. Even though I literally knew I had the job, the HR recruiter, hiring manager, team lead, program manager and a couple of others still interviewed me and actually gave me a small written test on my Linux skills during the interview. They never gave away that I was a shoe-in for the job during any formal communications, and were very professional during the salary negotiation. I had one phone interview, then they flew me out for an in-person 4-hour interview with lunch at the location where I would be working.
    The first interview was the HR part, so he asked questions to see how I viewed my strengths and weaknesses and other questions related to working as a member of a team.
    The second interview was the technical part including the pop-quiz they told me I didn't have to take. I got the few pages done in 15 minutes and moved on.
    The third interview included a team lead from a different area whose sole stated purpose was to figure if my personality would fit with the other teams and team members. Then lunch. The interviewers met up later that day to review as a group and then shot an offer to me within a couple of days.

    I lived within driving distance to the location at which I would be interning so I had an in person interview there with 3 engineers. They had a list of about 10 questions that they had to ask and they took notes. They were very easy to talk to and very helpful.
