    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Lockheed Martin uses the STAR (situation, task, action, result) process and panel interview. They supposedly ask all candidates the same questions, assign a score to each response and the candidate with the most points gets the offer. Most of the time was spent looking at the tops of their heads while the panel members furiously wrote down what I said.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Fort Worth, TX) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews with the department head in Fort Worth and a HR person before I accepted a job elsewhere. The calls were about 30 minutes each and the questions were basically assessments of my personality and how I would handle situations. I would brush up on basic principles in your field and the latest best practices. I was told there were candidates more qualified than me but they liked my can-do, willing to learn personality and the fact that I could apply the principles I've learned to real-world situations.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked several questions regarding Project Management principles and how I would solve certain issues such as bottlenecks in projects.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Baltimore, MD) in June 2012.

    Interview

    STAR - behavioral interviewing approach. Very straightforward. "Tell me about a time you had a difficult customer." The interviewing approach is useful. the fact that they don't really understand how to attract strong people or cull dead wood is not so much.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had a difficult customer. What did you do? How did it turn out.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Atlanta, GA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    It was the strangest interview I've had. They talked about Full Spectrum Leadership as the model they follow. An HR person called in from VA, two managers from GA and myself. They had phone difficulty which slowed the process. The entire interview took 2 hours - behavioral interview. The part that was most irritating and distracting was the insistence of the HR person who read the competency and stated that I must answer the question using the STAR method: situation or task, action required and result. She could have told me that ONCE, but before the manager asked 2 questions per competency she read to me and read or repeated the STAR instructions. It felt condescending - as if I weren't intelligent enough to remember how to answer a question and more than that it was distracting. I answered the questions as intelligently as I could but I didn't feel I did my best. I would have preferred that they leave out the HR "business partner" and simply ask the questions. I asked questions at the end and discovered that the contract only has one year left. I've been through this with a gov't contractor before and frankly I don't want to work where I have to worry if I will have a job in a year or two. I'm sure LM is a decent company to work for but my research also indicated that they don't pay as well as other companies and they are too big so if you are talented it is hard to stand out. It is possible I didn't do as well as I wished because I wasn't as interested in the job as I would like to be. My advice is to ignore the HR person if you are intervewed in this manner.
