    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, DC (US)) in October 2017.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Computer Science Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stennis Space Center, MS (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory.

    Interview

    After applying online if you get an email from an employee who works there, you're already in the program. The "interview" they want to schedule with you involves mostly the employee talking about his or her work, and asking you if you think it's interesting. You could get 1-4 interviews, but you don't get to choose which employee becomes your mentor.
