    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    This was an internal job transfer interview and I knew one of the interviewers. The interview went well, but I didn't hear back until the day I was to be laid off. Then it was my own manager who informed me that I did not make the cut. I thought that it would have been a nice gesture for a guy who knew me to call me and tell me that he had hired someone else. Grow a pair!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    I applied to a possible using their online system, then received an e-mail about 2 months later for an on-site interview. The recruiter forgot to send me the travel information and had to be postponed a few days later.

    The on-site interview consists of gather desired candidates and interviews them in a round-robin manner with half an hour time slots for each. The interview day was divided into two sessions. The morning was a group of 20 or so candidates and the afternoon session was around 30.

    No real hard interview questions. It was the basic routine of getting to know a person's background to see if it was a good fit.

    One of the interviewer was impressed and was willing to proceed to the next step. But a few days later, I received a notice saying that they will look for candidates within the organization instead. That was a waste of time. If they wanted internal candidates, then why bother inviting candidates from outside the organization.
