Energy Efficency Project Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in July 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted Resume online through their careers page. Next day received an email from one of their recruiters stating the target goals and salary for this position. After responding to that email I was contacted a day later for a phone interview. It was a panel of 5 people and strait forward. hard to hear their questions as there were 5 people plus me on the conference call type phone interview.

Interview Question – Give an example of working in a group and one or more people weren't pulling their weight? How did you handle the situation and what was the outcome?   View Answer

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – Lockheed comes to campus and gives an info session. At the info session you network with the recruiters and turn in your resume. They'll call you for an on campus interview. If you pass the on campus interview they'll call you in for an on site interview if not they won't bother notifying you.

Interview Question – Most questions depend on your resume. They mostly ask you questions about your experience and how those experiences would help in a systems engineering role.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Technical Writer Interview

Technical Writer
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in January 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process was stressful because there were at least three people in the room and each person had their own opinion of you so if you impressed one or two you might not have impressed the other.

Senior Systems Administrator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Herndon, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter and set up for an interview about a few days later. The interviewer called me on his cell phone in traffic during his drive home. The conversation was rather choppy because of his reception. During the interview, I was asked several questions, to which I answered quickly and correctly. He then said he would make his recommendation and let the recruiter know as soon as possible. The following day, the recruiter contacted me and said that the interview didn't go as well as I had assumed. I mentioned that I answered all of his technical questions correctly, even though he unprofessionally asked me while driving home and really didn't pay attention to my answers. The recruiter then laughed and said that he has been having the hardest time trying to fill this position since every possibly candidate has been rejected regardless of how well they thought the interview went. How unprofessional and a waste of time.

Interview Question – What was the most difficult task you've encountered in your past experience? How did you work through it?   Answer Question

Hardware Engineer Interview

Hardware Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – The interview went by like a blur. It started out with breadfast then an overview of the company. The interview process is two hours with 4 interviewers. Half an hour each. In that half an hour, they talk about what their department does and ask me some questions mainly about my projects that I have done in school. Then it's lunch and a tour of the facility.

Interview Question – Which aspect of Engineering do you like and dislike the most.   Answer Question

Multi Functional Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in February 2013.

Interview Details – There was a dinner event the night before. You get to ask questions about Lockheed Martin/finance division and they are observing you at the same time. Also there were hiring managers that you will be interviewing with the next day. It is a chance to make a positive first impression and in a way it is a pre-interview before the main interview. You also get to sign up for interviews for different positions. The next day was a full day event with getting a tour of a facility and listening to presentations about the ECDP and FLDP program. Then you have interviews with the hiring managers for several different positions within the company. They ask questions from a list and write your answers down. The questions throughout the interviews were all behavioral.Overall it was a good experience but a bit disorganized since they gave the schedule at the last minute . Also I didn't receive any email whether I was offered a job.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when the outcome was unfavorable?, What are the processes you have improved?   Answer Question

Interviewer asked nothing but behavioral questions and wrote down all of my answers. Was told I could expect to hear back within a month or two, but never heard back, even after numerous follow-ups.
