Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in February 2013.

Interview Details – The interview consisted of meeting with both the administrative manager and the technical lead for the project. It was a typical interview with nothing out of the ordinary. Most of the questions focused on my educational background and there were not too many technical questions. They also asked about eligibility for a security clearance. This was the biggest thing they talked about.

Interview Question – Why would you be an asset to our company?   View Answer

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Orlando, FL

I applied online and interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – The interview process is a joke. If you can't pass the few technical questions you'll get from a non-technical manager, you should probably consider another career.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for us?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – LM doesn't negotiate. If you try to negotiate, you're up against a faceless HR person on the phone, who is basically a company drone, and their favorite word is "no." The nice guy you met at the interview? He's now out of the picture. LM's position is always "take it or leave it."

I applied online and interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – I had a a phone interview, after I applied online several weeks prior. After the phone interview I was given a face to face interview. They paid for all travel expenses and I stayed in a hotel relatively close to the company site, the face to face interviews consisted of 3 interviews with different hiring managers.

Interview Question – I would say the interview consisted of questions primarly tailored to the location of the site, career goals, and also prior work shown on resume.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Goodyear, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details – Interview process was very simple. I had a couple of referrals from long-time employees (some management) and the job was mine to lose. I was taken to lunch and only asked why I was looking for a different job. No other interview-related questions were asked. It took about a month to get my paperwork approved and through the process before an official offer was made.

Interview Question – There were no questions. I had several friends that worked for LM and with my resume, I was a shoe-in.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were not willing to negotiate salary and pointed out that the benefits accounted for another 30%+ on top of the salary offered.
