Former Project Manager at Lockheed Martin

LM typically operates project teams as a matrixed organizational arrangement. I would ask a recruiter to describe this in as much detail as possible. Over the years at LM, I saw a variety of successes and failures originating from the matrix relationships. Groups that had matrixed members, but no other affiliations worked quite well. Other team members who serviced many teams struggled to demonstrate project ownership.

Lockheed Martin Corporation is a massive company that specializes in Aeronautics, Missile Systems, Simulators, Space, Weapon Systems, etc. I recommend that people do research first on the main website. I'd recommend asking the recruiters to share their background and experience with Lockheed. Also, ask questions into what business line and product they are recruiting for. Since Lockheed is a massive company, I'd also recommend to the recruiter to inform the recruiters of their background and ask how their skills could align with a position at Lockheed.

Great questions in my mind are how do you feel you challenge and engage your employees? What is unique about your culture that you believe makes Lockheed a desirable destination for top talent? What does advancement look like for young employees and what opportunities exist for high performers to move up?

It is best to be straightforward with a recruiter and try to get concrete answers from them. I often asked what the most effective way is to apply for the internship and if I could get the recruiter's email. Lockheed Martin is largely dependent on employee referrals. So if a recruiter gets to know you or if you somehow know an employee at that Lockheed Martin site, then you are in a vastly large advantage to other candidates who don't have a connection to Lockheed Martin.

What are the health insurance costs? Ask for a ballpark figure because Lockheed was $170.00 a week and my current employer is $4.60 a week. This can make a huge difference in the net salary. Ask how stable is the workflow and when was the last lay-off?

Good questions to ask a Lockheed recruiter at a career fair include: "How hands-on is this position?" "Where can I find a full job description and list of key required skills?" "Is it a flexible position where I can move around and work on different projects?"

Depends on the level of education, if a BS, ask what to expect as a new grad coming in. What type of programs are available for new grads ( There was a rotation program that really accelerated many careers ). If you have really defined goals, then ask about that area of the business.

Will my sector be sold to a competitor anytime soon? Are there higher level positions available once i am activated in my present role? LM pays up to 10K per year for tuition reimbursement correct? Can I move around within the LM company job postings?

Will there still be meaningful work for me even if I don’t have a security clearance right when I arrive? Would I work in a team setting or individually? What are some skills I should have polished if I were to start tomorrow?

If you see a recruiter, ask them what program they work on. Lockheed is a massive corporation, with engineers working on pretty much every platform and with every technology you can think of, so it’s always a good idea to see where exactly any one recruiter fits into the overall team.
