    Systems Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    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.

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online – interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

    Interview Details

    The interviews were strange because I felt over-prepared. They were incredibly easy to talk to and were very relaxed on question asking. I had a phone interview and in-person interview happening simultaneously, therefore, it was a bit different than average.

    (New-Grad) Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Met different employees at various on-campus events. They were all engaging and helpful in helping me determine what area and positions I would be a good match for. After a career fair, got a call for an interview. Ended up interviewing with someone I had met previously at on-campus events. The time set aside for the interview was ~45 minutes and the atmosphere was friendly. The interviewer asked one or two technical questions and a few behavioral questions (describe a time you had a disagreement among your team and how it turned out, etc.). I definitely over-thought the technical question, but otherwise it seemed to go fine. At they end the interviewer informed me that there would be another round of interviews for chosen candidates.

    I did not hear back from them after the interview. Followed up ~1 month later and still did not hear back from them.
