I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, DC)

Interview

There is a long hiring process but I believe there was only one phone interview and one in-person interview with the head of that department. It was an intern position so the interview wasn't too challenging. They were looking for a positive attitude, willingness to learn, ability to be independent as well as cooperate. They wanted to see basic knowledge & understanding of relevant technical skills & concepts.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Describe challenges you faced while completing a school project and how you handled them.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory (Monterey, CA) in Oct 2017

Interview

Went over my resume and went over the technologies I knew, very casual. There was no technical interview. Between the interview and getting hired it takes a long time, they do a thorough background check and you have to go through multiple training exercises.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory (Stennis Space Center, MS) in Oct 2016

Interview

I was never interviewed for this position. They apparently "don't have time to interview all their interns" and just hire interns based on the strength of their resume and recommendations. I was called less than a week after I applied and offered the job. Within two weeks I had completed the new hire paperwork (a 127 page form, plus others), and was working. I worked there for more than six weeks before I even met my supervisor.
