    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lockheed Martin.

    Interview

    Panel interview with hiring manager, HR representative, and former OLDP associate. They ask you 5 questions total and they expect answers in the STARS format. Advice: focus on networking with the hiring manager the night before if you're interviewing in a 2-day session. They pretty much hold the cards in terms of whether to hire or not. HR and the OLDP associate are there only so that they can aggregate scores and rank you against other participants so other hiring managers can see how you graded.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin.

    Interview

    I interviewed a few years ago (right before the Great Recession), but to my recollection it started off with a phone interview, then an in person interview. Neither of them were very technical. It was like they wanted to hear that you knew the names and words involving programming, but they weren't concerned about you actually proving that you could code. I guess that is because I had a very high GPA. I have heard that more recently they are switching to code test interviews. But I can't verify that.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had a bad experience with a coworker, and how did you handle that?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I believe the salary was calculated based off of GPA and years of experience. I think they have a program that gives them a number. I didn't try to negotiate from the number that they provided.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at a career fair. I was then called by HR a few weeks later asking if I'd like to attend one of three interview sessions in three different states (California, Texas, Arizona). I chose Texas and a few weeks later they flew me (as well as about 2 dozen others) in to interview with a few managers. This lasted most of the morning, then they provided lunch and gave us tours of the facilities in the afternoon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the website months ago. Finally received a call back the day I had received an offer from another company. I explained that I was prepared to accept the other offer, but their representative asked me to delay my response, so I did. The next day I spent a few hours filling out more online applications and on the following day got a call to set up an interview the following week. This was apparently very expedited due to my circumstances. The interview itself was fairly straight forward. The program manager, regional manager, and a senior programmer were present. They explained the scope of the immediate project, how the contract was organized, and what it's like to work there. The programmer asked a few basic C questions: basic enough that anyone with a solid basis shouldn't have difficulty answering, but I think a beginner would have stumbled a bit.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went for 45 minutes to an hour. I though I had done fairly well. A few days later the interviewer left a voicemail asking to setup a follow-up screen with one of the team leads. I emailed and called to arrange this appointment, but have since heard nothing back from him. I find this quite unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a question about interfaces and abstracts. But mostly they wanted to know about my former projects.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Fort Worth, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted in a cubicle in the recruiting center, and was between me and the hiring manager only. For the first 30 minutes he just told me about the position in great detail and gave me space to ask questions. Then he began asking me questions about my personality and experience, but that only lasted another 15 minutes.
