    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salford, North West England, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Salford, North West England, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    - No technical phone/pre-screening

    - 3 hour online coding test that was very 'academic' - poor test of actual ability (Codility)

    - Interviewers mostly read questions from a book. Weren't receptive to answers that didn't mention specific keywords.

    - Interview very one-sided. Two-way discussion attempts were shot down.

    - Role appeared different from the one I applied for.

    - Generally poor-feeling about culture and personalities (or lack of) in office.

    Invited back for further stages but declined.
