Engineering Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Ampthill, England

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in February 2013.

Interview Details After the initial application, there are no tests or anything like that. I got a phone call for an interview in January sometime for an interview in February. There are 12 applicants for 3 places. 6 get interviewed in the morning, and 6 in the afternoon. Along with the interviews is the group task which is to solve a problem based on different information given to different candidates. Communication is key here.

Note: Their HR department is not the best. Travel costs didn't get refunded to me unfortunately, and I received no communication after my interview, so I had to follow up.

Interview Question – Describe a 50p coin. This was the written test question.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Electrical Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Santa Maria, CA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Lockheed Martin in April 2010.

Interview Details I interviewed with Lockheed Martin during my final quarter at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. The odd thing was that I interviewed with recruiters from Houston looking for software engineers, and as I was a power engineer, I thought the interview was a waste of time. A month or so later I was contacted by a division of Lockheed Martin that was hiring within 20 miles of my home in Arroyo Grande.

Interview Question – As I was highly trained in facility type power distribution, and the job was for this specialty, I had very little trouble with the inview questions. I think I knew more about the subject than the interviewers.   Answer Question
