Mechanical Engineer Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2013.
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.
- 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.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2011.
All applicants are assessed by an HR person for meeting minimum requirements. A reduced number of applicants are evaluated by the hiring manager. The most promising applicants, usually 1 to 5, may get a phone interview. One or more of those may be selected for a face-to-face interview.
On-campus college recruiters interview the most promising candidates and rate them. This interview provides a great advantage for starting positions.
- Tell about a time that you had a conflict with a professor or team member and how you resolved it? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Littleton, CO) in July 2009.
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.
- I would say question and discussions about desired salary. Answer Question
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.

- Typical questions: Leadership, experience,"what would you do in this situation..." Answer Question
Formal offer from HR/ hiring manager, competitive salary ranges.
