Systems Engineering Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the position after reading the description on the company website. About 3 weeks later I received a call asking to schedule a phone interview. I interviewed on the phone with one person, who would be my manager. After discussing the requisition in more detail, she went through my resume asking questions about my different projects, what challenges I faced, etc. Other questions were fairly common and expected - none technical or remarkably difficult. After the phone interview, I followed up with a thank you, then followed up again asking where I stood in the process, and received no message in return. From there I assumed I didn't make the cut.

    Interview Questions
    • The most interesting question I was posed was whether or not I would feel comfortable voicing my opinions in a group of people with far more experience than I. It came after discussing that the company as a whole is trying to bring new ideas to the table to improve processes.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lockheed Martin in October 2007.

    Interview Details

    I actually interviewed for my position three years before, but I have more recently interviewed candidates. Back when I interviewed, I only had one round and they offered me the job on the spot, because it was a recruiting day at an area hotel and HR was there. I have not seen that happen since. For an entry engineering position, the interviews have typically been 30 minutes or so with the senior manager followed by an hour and a half of 2 engineers interviewing the one candidate. Questions are open ended behavioral interviewing to find out more about the candidate's technical, problem solving,creativity, interpersonal and teamwork skills, flexibility, initiative, etc. A question might be "Tell me about a time when you had to think outside the box." Based on your answer, follow up questions are asked. You are also asked about what is on your resume and maybe your knowledge of what we do in the office, not just Lockheed Martin. One of my co-workers seems to get annoyed when you don't know. There is time for questions at the end. Then there is a lunch with an engineer that is more social followed by a debriefing. The senior manager is ultra picky, but as far as the engineers, it rotates, so it depends on who you get.

    Interview Details

    Very formal interview process that started on a college campus. This interview was 1:1 with an alumni. Received a call back after the college interview to come to Washington, D.C. for a second round of interviews. The second round consisted of ~6 interviews with 6 managers. After the second round I received an offer via email and snail mail.
