Manufacturing Engineer Senior Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in June 2014.
Interview Details – The interview process contained a phone call interview that lasted about 30 minutes and then they flew me out for an onsite interview which lasted about 4 hours. I first met with HR and went through the benefits and work schedule etc. Then I had a panel interview with many of the managers and peers with the departments I would be working for. There were a lot of open ended questions of what type of personalities I find hard to work with along with the normal "How are you motivated" type questions. Everyone was very professional and at the end of the interview they gave me ample time to ask questions back to them about the position. I was also given a tour of the facility when everything was completed.
Interview Question – No real difficult questions. More personality questions rather than technical question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I declined their first offer and focused on what I thought I should be at in respects to salary. I knew they would not give me everything I wanted, but they raised the initial offer very easy without any real concern. I would always counter their first offer as they expect to negotiate.
Systems Engineering Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in November 2013.
Interview Details – First it was a really basic phone screening. Then a two days interview at the facilities at Orlando, FL. The first day it was directly from the airport to LM facilities (so be ready with your nice attire) for a presentation about the program and about the company to all students (a group of about 35), then to the hotel, and then a diner with the hiring managers (3 managers and 3 students per table). Second day an icebreaker (teams of 4 students to solve a challenge), then a facility tour, then presentations from integrands of the program, and finally a panel interview. The interview was a regular panel interview with 4 managers/HR, one made a question, then the other manager made a question, then the other, and again in a circle of questions. It was a bit disappointing on the way the questions was delivered, they was just reading the question, I was expecting a conversation like interview, not a question/answer robotic way. After all we had a regular group diner and then they let us free to “have fun” on the area. Next morning to the airport.
Interview Question – All was behavioral question: Tell me about a time when you… Answer Question
Technology Innovations Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Lockheed Martin
Interview Details – Lockheed Martin has a robust hiring process and looks for top candidates. I was flown into Washington DC at their Global Vision Center for a company overview and the interview process. This was for a special program with a more scientific and technical innovation component so I'm not sure if that is their standard process. Still, good company and structure process.
Interview Question – Questions were both technical and behavioral. Having to do a sales pitch for an idea was a bit unconventional. I didn't feel like any questions were really unexpected. Answer Question
Electrical Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in October 2010.
Interview Details – First a phone screening interview. General questions about your background, experience, very basic technical questions about your resume etc. If looks like a good match, then on-site interview. This is more in-depth and technical. Some will ask you circuit questions, others some behavioral/personality questions. Third phone interview for asking your interests etc.
Interview Question – Nothing particularly difficult. If you know your basics, you should do fine. Answer Question
Network Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin.
Interview Details – After the first phone screening with the team lead, I was asked to come in for interview. At the interview with the team lead, manager and 2 other technical staff, I was asked some technical which I was able to answer without difficulty. They Interviewers were nice and professional. Overall, the interview was easy
Negotiation Details – I refused the first offer, and they increased it by 5%. I accepted the second offer as I realized they were not going to go higher
Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in January 2013.
Interview Details – Very generic interview process asking about personality and technical skills. Asked about your weaknesses, strengths and greatest achievements. It is usually a panel interview with the department associates and which ones you will be working with on a day to day basis. If you are lucky you meet the department head and is in the interview process

Interviewed at Lockheed Martin
Interview Details – Went online and applied then I had an interview. It was a lot of fun. It was not hard. Very nice people interviewed me. All in all I was very excited
Software Engineer Staff Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in April 2014.
Interview Details – Was contacted by the hiring manager after submitting my resume. The hiring manager set up an interview with one of the technical leads on the program that I was applying for. The interview was scheduled for the following week. When I arrived for the interview, I first met the hiring manager, who then passed me on to the technical lead for the actual interview.
Interview Question – During the interview the technical lead first wanted me to explain what it is that I was doing at my current position. I explained which technologies I was using in my current position. Since I was doing a lot of Java and Web Application development, I was very detailed about what our software and web applications were. This essentially led to a discussion back and forth as the pros and cons certain COTS products, programming languages, and platforms. This conversation seemed to let the interviewer know my expertise level. Answer Question
Graduate Scheme Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in May 2014.

Typical competency questions and technical questions regarding specific university expertise. Friendly atmosphere and good experience.

Senior Communications Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in March 2014.
Interview Details – LM recruiter contacted me initially and asked me to submit a questionnaire. I did not hear back for more than a month and then was contacted for an interview. The interview was based on a set of about 15-20 questions and my answers were written down during the interview. I was offered the job about 10 days later.
Interview Question – Nothing to difficult or unexpected as far as questions asked during the interview. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined the offer with LM because the salary offered was lower than expected for a senior-level position.
