Had a panel interview the same week with 6 people, a few managers and engineers. Really straightforward interview mostly asking about resume and a few star questions. (Know your resume inside out).

    Principal Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roy, UT (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Roy, UT (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online at the NG website. Interviewed on the phone with a recruiter.

    Contacted a few days after phone interview by another HR person. Asked to fill out a short questionnaire on my background. After submitting the questionnaire, was sent a curt email telling me that I did not qualify for the position because my current (TS) clearance was not with the DoD. (I have a TS with another US Government agency).

    Northrop Grumman seems to not apply for reciprocity with clearances. Very strange. The position is going to be very hard to fill if DoD TS clearance is immediately required. (Reciprocity only takes a few months at most folks!) People with graduate degrees and 5+ years of data science experience PLUS a DoD TS clearance are not a dime a dozen. Especially if moving to Roy, Utah is a requirement.

    Recruiter did not return my email inquiring about reciprocity.

    Cyber Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Huntsville, AL (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I am a former employee of Northrop and applied again. I applied through my referral account (this was not the position that I was referred to - however, applying within that account gave me some better visibility in their system I believe. My original account's application were overlooked or rejected). The process took approximately 3 weeks. I was emailed by the Talent Acquisition recruiter that there was initial interest in my resume (apparently I one of the firsts to apply) and set up a call. The call went over why I left Northrop, my salary expectations, and a little bit about my past experiences at Northrop and the new position. I was set up with an interview scheduled a week later. It was supposed to be a panel interview with 3, but only 2 were on the phone call: Hiring Manager and Cyber Architect. I talked through my resume. The questions asked were directly related to experiences in my resume. Be able to describe your experiences, and you should be set. Be confident and honest with your answers and you should be fine. Interviewed Friday, verbal offer on Monday. Currently waiting official offer.

    Industrial Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodland Hills, CA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Woodland Hills, CA (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual, like having a conversation with 3 people. The questions were a blend of behavioral and technical, mostly asking to elaborate on projects l've completed in the past. The panel interview was conducted over zoom.

    After the interview, the status on my application changed from "interview" to "completed". I assumed this was the decision process. After 2 weeks or so, I reached out to the recruiter for a follow up, no response. 1 week later, my application changed to "No longer under consideration".
