    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (King of Prussia, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Mass applied to many positions online. Received request for interview several months later after it seems a recruiter came across my resume. Strangely, I was asked to do a security pre-screen before the actual interview. A few days later, I got an onsite interview. I met with two groups that were interested in me. The interview with the first group was great and the recruiter, or whoever set up the interview, did a really good job matching my technical interests and personality type to the group technical lead and the project.

    After a solid 45 minute interview in which we mostly geeked out about mathematical projects or object oriented programming, we shook hands and proceeded about our ways. The interview was fairly informal without a lot of the typical interview questions. The hiring manager was very interested and involved in the process and followed up with me several times following the interview concerning how I thought it went and how my interview compared with the group after me. They really seemed quite enthusiastic about Lockheed and the project and that enthusiasm was infectious. Three business days later I received a formal job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Gaithersburg, MD) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few weeks later I got an email from a recruiter asking to set up a meeting. I scheduled a day and drove up and had an hour long interview with the manager and another member of my team. They asked me no technical questions and asked me to explain things that I had on my resume. They in turn let me ask questions, and so I did. As I left, I asked the manager why there weren't any technical questions and he said that if you managed to graduate then they assume you know the base knowledge. Talking about stuff on your resume let them know whether you knew your stuff or not.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I had another offer and so they were able to match my new offer to just a little under the other offer, which I preferred since the other offer was a lot farther from home than I wanted.

    Interview

    Went through 3 interviews with them including phone interviews. Last one was more informal and a visit to the onsite client. Past the phone interview / screening phase everything seemed pretty cool. The phone screening phase seemed pretty not-great though... a bit hurried. Got the feeling they were interviewing a lot of people that day.

    Interview

    Applied online and was flown out to the hiring event with the free amenities other people have been mentioning. I had two interviews with the hiring managers on site; as people have mentioned the questions asked were very behavioral and mostly non-technical.

    I ended up receiving an offer a week/week and a half later. The offer was lower than my other job offers, but I had a good feeling at the interview, and thought the work this company does is pretty neat so I ended up accepting the offer.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Fort Worth, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to attend an hiring event in Dallas. I interviewed on Friday and had a offer letter sent to me on Monday. I think it was very nice to be able to get an opportunity to get to see the production line of F-35s.

    They also put me on schedule to interview for another position but I wasn't aware about it until halfway through that interview. I had asked the HR/(person who scheduled me) if it was for the same position or a different one and he did say it was for the same position.... :/ (left a little awkward because I didn't want what position I was interviewing for... but I went along with the flow)

    *Note: I got an offer but I haven't officially accepted it as I got it just a couple of hours back :/

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Marietta, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. A recruiter contacted me about a month later asking question about salary expectations, skills knowledge and other things related to the job description. I reply and didn't hear back. I reached out again to my recruiter who informed me that if the department was interested in me someone else would contact me. Soon after I receive an email informing me that I was selected for an interview. Two weeks later I interviewed with the company. There were three people and one person on vide chat. The three people in the room rotated questions and the individual on the video chat was just an extra set of ears. The interview is mainly behavior based. Explain a time when...(usually followed by)... and how did you handle it.

    Interview

    Very straightforward interview. Mostly behavioral questions. Got offer within two weeks. Hiring process was smooth. Although the amount of information to provide on the online application can get lengthy and repetitive. I had two different interviews both were very similar questions wise. The interviewer made it a friendly and open conversation, so I was able to open up which eventually helped in me getting offered the position.
