    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that went well, then the company flew me in for a face to face interview that also went well, but I was not 100% sure if I got the job or not. Within days I received a call with an offer. I countered, but they did not accept. It was still good, so I took the offer almost 8 years ago.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Got an interview through referrals. Flew me out and had me stay in a hotel for an interview that was only 20 minutes and very strait forward (not behavioral, just people taking turns asking questions off of a sheet of paper). Got an email from HR a week asking me to complete some paperwork, then got an offer the week after. Very easy interview and laid back.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in King of Prussia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (King of Prussia, PA).

    Interview

    Simple process, they asked for more details about each job I mentioned on my resume. What technical skills did I use at each position, and what challenges did I overcome at each? Wasn't much time for me to ask anything in return, they were very busy that day with other interviews and with meetings.

    Interview Questions

    • Can I talk about some of the OOP I have done?
      What programming environments have I worked in and what are my preferences?
      They didn't seem too interested in my scientific/mathematical abilities, just how much programming do I do everyday. Sounded like there was very little opportunity for advancement or experience mentoring other junior programmers, despite this having "senior" in the job title.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Telephone interview was with three people; two were respectful, one was not. The behavior of that particular one was hostile as he belittled my experience from the start. His needless combativeness and anger made me wonder whether he had devised a bias against me from the start? Gender? Who knows....but I must say that if he displayed this behavior in an interview, it must get worse on the job with him. Red flag, to say the least. I'm very disappointed in the tone of the interview, but understand that if one interviews enough, one will encounter bad behavior or downright personality disorders. One thing about small, stand-alone business units/contracts isolated from the corporate mothership is that the cultures can vary widely in those units and the importance of healthy dynamics cannot be understated. It is a risk one takes when being employed by such a small outfit, and I suspect that risk plays out in this case. Beware.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was given an unexpected phone screening / interview two weeks after I applied for the job. Then I was called a week later to set up an interview that was two weeks from that date.

    The interview was very relaxed and we just went over my resume, and we talked about the position more. They would ask me some behavioral questions that arose during me going over my resume. They joked a little and smiled a lot, and were very friendly. They didn't ask me any technical questions.

    The interview was on a Thursday, and I got the offer on the next Monday.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (King of Prussia, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by the Senior Manager of the interested department and one of his lead software engineers. The interview was very conversational and personality based, only a few formal questions were asked. Very little technical information was requested or tested. Both interviewers were highly personable and friendly, relatively relaxed atmosphere. Although I did not receive an offer, I would say this interview was worth the experience alone.
