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.
