Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Orlando, FL) in February 2017.

Interview

Very relaxed, they did not try to throw you off guard they ask reasonable questions: describe a project you worked on and that had a problem and what was the outcome (they asked that question in about 3 different ways) so have multiple projects you've worked on and there out come. They want to know a project that had a failure in it, and how you rose above it and solved the problem. They also need to know that you've had a project that didn't go the way you planed and what solutions you provided, as well as, did they go with your solution or a different one. If they went with a different one that isn't a failure (talk about how you supported and improved it). They ask all these questions expecting and asking you to answer using STAR so exp (Situation, Task, Actions, and Results

Interview Questions

  • Has there been a project that there was a problem that occurred (what was the problem and how was is resolved). Has there been a project that you needed to ask for help (what was the problem,who did you ask, how did you solve the issue). [try to have project that are meaning full and can be translated to the industry] also answer them using the STAR model   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Middletown, CT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was more or less strait forward with several different forms. I had to fill out a few more forms than average due to my work history, but still relatively painless

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Baltimore, MD) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a 1-2 hour presentation on the company with a group of interviewees. Broke off and had a couple of interviews then met back for lunch. Had another interview and then went on a tour of all the facilities. Very long day for an interview and seemed very pointless and redundant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Denver, CO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    After a brief phone interview, I was called in for a series of interviews. They all took place in one afternoon. I spoke with my eventual manager, one of his technical leads, and another employee whom I haven't ever worked with again. Each interview was one-on-one, and I recall more personality-type questions than technical. Of course they wanted to hear about my experience as well.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied at a university job fair. Had a short informal interview/meeting with the recruiters the next day. Then was contacted a month later for an interview on site in California with the space systems company.

    Interview Questions

    • I spoke with many other candidates before and after the interviews. Some were asked some very difficult technical questions, such as transforming a transfer function from the frequency to time domain, but most weren't really asked anything. My own interview was so uninvolved that I was sure I was not going to receive an offer. But, I got the offer-- very strange.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay offered was very low and non negotiable. $67,000 in Sunnyvale California. They want graduating engineer students from the top of their class at half of what these new engineers can get elsewhere.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Houston, TX) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a MAES conference in Houston, Texas and was offered an interview on the spot upon him reviewing my resume. At that point, I was put on a waiting list and then taken to the back for an interview. The interview questions consisted mainly of the recruiter asking me about projects and coursework that were on my resume. Apart from that, he asked what particular division I would like to work for if I were offered a job and why. Since I was asked for an interview on the spot, I wasn't prepared and hadn't researched Lockheed Martin prior to the interview so I'm pretty sure that's why I did not advance in the interview process. Some advice: Always research the companies you want to work for in advance just in case a surprise interview comes your way.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    All applicants are assessed by an HR person for meeting minimum requirements. A reduced number of applicants are evaluated by the hiring manager. The most promising applicants, usually 1 to 5, may get a phone interview. One or more of those may be selected for a face-to-face interview.
    On-campus college recruiters interview the most promising candidates and rate them. This interview provides a great advantage for starting positions.
