Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details

Multiple interviews with different people. Large number of other qualified candidates there. Competitive. They had breakfast and lunch available. They actually flew me in for the interview. They were interviewing for multiple positions so it was pretty stress free.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online, was contacted by a recruiter about an on-site interview in Syracuse, NY. Company paid for flight/rental/meals. The on-site interview consisted of a presentation by HR and an engineer for about 1 - 1.5 hours to a group of about 12 candidates, and a quick-ish tour, and then everyone was split up to different rooms to be interviewed 1-on-1. There were 3 back-to-back interviews, each about an hour, with 3 different people, of varying seniority (sr. managers, lead engr, 'entry level' managers). The interviewers all had a sheet of questions which they wanted the candidate to answer in 'STAR' format. All behavioral questions, asking to draw on my past experiences, and some occasional probing question (slightly technical) that asked something a little deeper about an experience or project I mentioned. One slightly frustrating part was that the interviewers all had the same questions, and preferred if I gave a different answer for each time I was asked a given question (this was challenging for some of the tougher behavioral questions).

    After interviews was lunch and a chance for final questions before wrapping up early afternoon.

    Overall very pleasant experience; enjoyed talking to my interviewers.

    Showing significant knowledge of the companies current contracts and related contracts seemed to catch a lot of attention.

    Received a phone call telling me to expect an email offer about a week after interviewing.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, got back from HR within 1-2 months. Straight to on site interview. But sometimes they will have HR call you first to do the screening questions, for example, are you US citizen? I got a pre-employment form after 30 minutes of the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online the end of October and wasn't called for an interview until the beginning of December. The first one is an initial screening done by the HR and if you pass you are given an on site interview which is covered by the company. On the day of the interview I was told that it was going to be very informal and meet with 6 of the team members. I was interviewed by 2 people at a time for 45 min. Each. The interview covered a lot of what the job entailed and I was asked questions to make sure I fit the part. Everyone was very nice and professional however I was disappointed with the way they handled the communication of the following steps. I was told I would be contacted within the next week. I was never contacted by the company and had to send the HR team a few emails for them to finally let me know that I would not be offered the job. I don't mind that I didn't get an offer but I didn't like not knowing for so long and then never even getting a formal rejection letter was also pretty disappointing especially because I really wanted to work for this company.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were based off of your resume and past experiences. Be sure to use the STAR format when answering questions and know your resume very well. Make sure to do your research about the company beforehand because they will ask you questions about it to see if you have done your homework.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by phone to fly out to Lockheed Martin for an interview. Very laid back interview process. For me, it was two thirty minute interviews that were behavioral. They will review your resume and ask questions from it as well as your standard behavioral questions. Study your answers beforehand and make a good impression with the recruiters.
