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.
How do you apply for these jobs
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.
I am a college student wanting to change my major from accounting. I was interested in becoming an engineer so I took this quiz on LockHeed Martin website. I got Software engineer! http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/innovations/engineer-quiz-eweek.html
When can I expect the Hiring Manager to call?
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
If your under 50, and can take the ups and downs of the Defense industry, go for it.
