Communications Engineer Interview

Communications Engineer
Huntsville, AL (US)

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in January 2010.

Interview Details 3 phone calls with people who didn't understand what was required, and were happy you did. The site manager was a PC Technician and was not familiar with the Network and Telecommunications responsibilities. His lack of knowledge made it very difficult to place any value as to what was expected from the position.

Interview Question – Can you help us   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated through a head-hunter, had to remind Lockheed Martin of everything they agreed to numerous times. Had to almost quit to get what they promised. Their reasons for not following up were they have a very busy schedule and you should be patient even when it has been 4-6 months past their agreed upon time for pay increases.

Software Engineer Associate Interview

Software Engineer Associate

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Lockheed Martin.

Interview Details Got a phone call by a recruiter to set up a profile and got bumped up to a Program Manager's view. About 2 weeks later I got an email to confirm an interview date. It was a group interview with different Program Managers. Was asked basic interview questions like "how do you handle a specific situation". More behavior questions than anything. Nothing technical at all.

Interview Question – How would you go about telling a customer that what they wanted was way out of scope of the project?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Offer was more than I expected so I accepted.

Manufacturing Engineer Senior Interview

Manufacturing Engineer Senior
Houston, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in June 2014.

Interview Details The interview process contained a phone call interview that lasted about 30 minutes and then they flew me out for an onsite interview which lasted about 4 hours. I first met with HR and went through the benefits and work schedule etc. Then I had a panel interview with many of the managers and peers with the departments I would be working for. There were a lot of open ended questions of what type of personalities I find hard to work with along with the normal "How are you motivated" type questions. Everyone was very professional and at the end of the interview they gave me ample time to ask questions back to them about the position. I was also given a tour of the facility when everything was completed.

Interview Question – No real difficult questions. More personality questions rather than technical question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I declined their first offer and focused on what I thought I should be at in respects to salary. I knew they would not give me everything I wanted, but they raised the initial offer very easy without any real concern. I would always counter their first offer as they expect to negotiate.

Systems Engineering Associate Interview

Systems Engineering Associate
Orlando, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

Electrical Engineer Interview

Electrical Engineer
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in October 2010.

Interview Details First a phone screening interview. General questions about your background, experience, very basic technical questions about your resume etc. If looks like a good match, then on-site interview. This is more in-depth and technical. Some will ask you circuit questions, others some behavioral/personality questions. Third phone interview for asking your interests etc.

Interview Question – Nothing particularly difficult. If you know your basics, you should do fine.   Answer Question

Technology Innovations Interview

Technology Innovations

Interviewed at Lockheed Martin

Interview Details Lockheed Martin has a robust hiring process and looks for top candidates. I was flown into Washington DC at their Global Vision Center for a company overview and the interview process. This was for a special program with a more scientific and technical innovation component so I'm not sure if that is their standard process. Still, good company and structure process.

Interview Question – Questions were both technical and behavioral. Having to do a sales pitch for an idea was a bit unconventional. I didn't feel like any questions were really unexpected.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Staff Interview

Software Engineer Staff
Hanover, MD (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in April 2014.

Interview Details Was contacted by the hiring manager after submitting my resume. The hiring manager set up an interview with one of the technical leads on the program that I was applying for. The interview was scheduled for the following week. When I arrived for the interview, I first met the hiring manager, who then passed me on to the technical lead for the actual interview.

Interview Question – During the interview the technical lead first wanted me to explain what it is that I was doing at my current position. I explained which technologies I was using in my current position. Since I was doing a lot of Java and Web Application development, I was very detailed about what our software and web applications were. This essentially led to a discussion back and forth as the pros and cons certain COTS products, programming languages, and platforms. This conversation seemed to let the interviewer know my expertise level.   Answer Question
