    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin (Colorado Springs, CO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was sudden, LM gave me less then 24 hour notice for it. I was interviewed by 2 personnel, neither of which was a manager, they could not answer specific questions about benefits, holidays, pay... ect only give a general answer that would apply to almost any company.
    Application is lengthy and there are numerous other forms and items that have to be completed for a full background investigation. I spent 4 weeks sending in additional documentation to the background investigation company before the background investigation was complete. Recruiter was slow in response to any questions including start date and other important job related questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Most unexpected question: Would you be willing to work 45 hours a week and only get paid for 40?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was very slow, the recruiter took usually a week or more each time I asked any question or when I countered the offer for more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in July 2011.

    Interview

    Currently Lockheed is interested in hiring individuals with very little experience, but they do prefer a high level of education. This allows the company to make a low offer; however, they will not negotiate, you take the offer or they move on to the next person. This is perfect for recent college graduates, but obviously not good for experienced professionals. If you are an experienced professional, expect to receive an offer lower than what you are currently making; for example, for a Systems Administrator currently making $60-$80k, expect an offer of $45-$60k. Of course, Lockheed offers a great deal of perks and the ability to set your own hours, which is certainly worth a bit of monetary compensation.

    As for the interview, the company is not concerned with formalities. You'll meet with the Project Manager and discuss education. If they like you, they will advise you not to expect a large amount of compensation. The entire hiring process is very slow, between 3 and 4 months, be patient.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your salary expectations?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Do NOT negotiate with Lockheed, you will not gain anything. Take the offer or leave it, you certainly do not want to burn bridges if you are considering different positions within the company.

    30 minute interview, no biggie.

    Interview Questions

    • These are stock interviews, you either know your stuff or you don't. Focus on being a long term employee with 20+ years in the company, that's what Lockheed Martin wants. Great company.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They set the price, you take it or leave it. Good wages back then, DoD cutback are drawing down all Defense Industry wages.
