My advice to people interested in working at #LockheedMartin as a #Contractor ...

If you're looking to work for a big and important company such as Lockheed Martin, just know that they're very intuitive about supervision during your training phase. One small slip and they will not go easy on you for it. I was terminated for inspecting work, and since it wasn't listed as a job duty I was terminated.

Drama at #LockheedMartin

Co-workers at Lockheed Martin were very cunning people. They didn't help with my job instead they would email the manager behind people's back basically making them look bad. Managers would go on the senior employees word without investigating properly. Favoritism is huge factor. In order to have longevity there most people are related. Alot of back door B.s. Jealousy From senior workers toward contract workers. Overall good place to make money but people don't last. Dept. FFU especially made people feel like your not "good enough." Gotta be "in" to stay in. Definitely not a friendly environment.

Not to mention the catty personalities. OET meetings was supposed to be about production flows abd charts within a Dept. But it was more of a bunch of women complaining about co workers, as well as the bitching between 1st. &2nd. shifts. One manager in the FFU Dept. she even entertained employees getting them to talk about one another. I recall one meeting when she let an employee get away with calling a PE worthless. Now correct me if I'm wrong but as a manager she was supposed to check that woman right away. Instead she laughed like it was a joke. But Lockheed Martin is supposed to be professional!? Well where I was at nothing professional at all. Oh and your chart will always be twisted FFU, you guys don't try to fix the problem instead your corrupt mentality us the problem! Some people should stick to managing kitchens instead if trying to manage government products. But keep playing employees one against the other see how far you get! When you hire people your are to guide and mold them into productive employees for the needs of the company! Ended my contact with no probable cause. All because if your sneaky employees. But it's cool you guys like drunks working on your "important" classified confidential products? Have at it. But just know your loss. You got rid of a good employee. And I still look great! Can't say much for those there. Stress free these days.

Financial literacy is crucial to truly achieving financial independence. The book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Kiyosaki suggests accounting with knowledge of stocks, bonds, possibly real estate, and taxes to protect your money and using the rules for your money to make more for you. I just saw yesterday an Accounting major with a tutor and smiling. No doubt that Software eng. will also open opportunities and increased marketability to your likability since systems/network thinking will create the leaders of tomorrow. Good Luck.

there is a book and a test that evaluates your strengths. Called Strengths Finder by Tom Rath, Amazon had the best price when I looked. Has a one time code for the online test. The point of the book is if you work in the areas of your strengths you will be the happiest and most successful.

Hi David: Thanks for posting to Jobcase! Did you get an email from a recruiter or HR manager with an email address or phone number you could call? I'd recommend starting there and seeing if there's someone you could get in contact with. Hope this helps!

Lockheed Contract Job Fell Through...No Reason Given

Was offer a job as a Contractor with Lockheed.

Background: I worked for Lockheed for 24 years. I was terminated. Three years later I was asked about taking a position as a contract engineer. I told them yes, but I informed them about my history with Lockheed. I was informed that there was no "Do not hire" on file.

So I was to report in two weeks. Reported to the site, brought my ID, took my badge photo. Then sat in the lobby for 1 hours. Finally someone appeared that the manager was I sick and I was to return the next day. In the meanwhile I called by contracting company. Nothing. The next day I was told that there was no longer an assignment for me. Furthermore, do not contact the LM employees about the position. Two week awaiting, 30 min drive wasted and 1 hour of sitting wasted. SHM

I've never heard of that happening to someone with a job offer but Lockheed does have some high security level jobs and workplaces. I would imagine anything they find raising red flags in an former employees previous work record or background check is cause for concern.
