Software Engineer Staff Interview

Software Engineer Staff
Hanover, MD

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

Senior Communications Specialist Interview

Senior Communications Specialist

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.

Software Engineer Asc Interview

Software Engineer Asc
Littleton, CO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the position and didnt get a call for the interview until about a month later. In the first 30 minutes of the interview I was casually interviewed by the project manager, simple things like, where do you see your career going, tell me about a time you worked in a group, etc. The following 30 minutes I was given a tour of the working environment, met a few other employees. The last hour of my interview was spent talking pretty casually with 3 of whom my peers would be if hired. I was asked about my programming, schooling, and project background, and given some good pieces of advice about the company and learning new useful programming tools/techniques. There was never any technical interview, simply explained experiences and knowledge I already had. I was interviewed on a Wednesday and the following Monday got a call saying the program wanted to extend me an offer. As most of the other reviews say, LM focuses more on what kind of person you are because they can teach if you everything they need you to know on the job if they find you fit.

Interview Question – As I had mentioned, they really didnt try and throw any curve balls. Mostly want to know what your background is and what type of personality you have.   Answer Question
