Mechanical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Sunnyvale, CA
Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in October 2013.

Interview Details

I applied at a university job fair. Had a short informal interview/meeting with the recruiters the next day. Then was contacted a month later for an interview on site in California with the space systems company.

Interview Questions
  • I spoke with many other candidates before and after the interviews. Some were asked some very difficult technical questions, such as transforming a transfer function from the frequency to time domain, but most weren't really asked anything. My own interview was so uninvolved that I was sure I was not going to receive an offer. But, I got the offer-- very strange.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

The pay offered was very low and non negotiable. $67,000 in Sunnyvale California. They want graduating engineer students from the top of their class at half of what these new engineers can get elsewhere.

    Typical process: HR/ recruiter screen, hiring manager phone interview, in-person interview. Better chance at full-time employment if you use a job fair or co-op as a college student.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    The key for me when I got hired was that I have a BS in Engineering from an ABET school and my GPA was above a 3.0. I also had a secret security clearance when I interviewed which helps a great deal. I also had a lot of experience with 3D design software when I came into the company.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say question and discussions about desired salary.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    awful. It was not a pleasant experience and HR got over on me pretty bad. I have yet to recover and I am so far behind my peers in salary that if I stay I will probably never truely catch up. Lesson learned, don't let HR take advantage of you.
