    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people - best team I've worked with in a long time.
    Work life balance - the 9/80 schedule is brilliant, plus there is the capacity to work from home if you need to. Great locations and offices.
    And my manager. Definitely in the grand final of best ever.
    The vision - they definitely are always looking up and out. I love that.

    Cons

    Branching off from a US company causes some teething problems with Australian processes.
    Slow at times - approval from the USA - see above re developing processes. But that is absolutely not out of the ordinary for a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Get the little things right - processes, payments, paperwork etc., and the big things will follow.

    Aircraft Electrician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Based on my experience it took a year for them to look at me again after having failed my first interview with them. But that was then and my second interview was a success. Either you can attend a person to person interview on-site or have a interview conducted online.

    Interview Questions

    • 40 minute interview that discusses your experience in the electro-mechanical field. Several questions "quiz" on how some electronic principles work; what is Ohms law? Where do you see yourself in or 10 years.   4 Answers
