    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None that apply to this experience.

    Cons

    Applied online and received an acknowledgement email. Received follow-up email a few days later, requesting additional information. Phone call received the following week, voicemail left asking me to call them back - first name only given by Lockheed Martin employee, along with contact number. I returned the call the same day, to be told that they weren't sure who had contacted me, so they took my number and said they'd find out who I needed to speak to. No response received, so I emailed the in house recruitment team as I was concerned the person who had left the voicemail would think I hadn't returned their call. After much debate over email, the company denied receiving my application at all. Two weeks later, I received an email advising that my application had been unsuccessful. What a shambles!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Sort out your recruitment team and process. When I spoke to your recruitment team, they were rude and off hand. Clearly had no idea what was going on. This is not the way to attract quality talent - feels like I had a lucky escape!
