I just received an offer from Lockheed for an accounting associate position, with a decent starting salary. I also interviewed for the multi functional financial analyst position at another location as well..
Can anyone tell me if they both start around the same starting salary, and possibly what the average starting salary for each job is?
I am in no position to reject this offer, given the fact that I graduated May 2012, and just received my first offer..but I feel like I may get an offer for the Finance job as well, I just want to make the best career decision..

Here is the deal. I went to a mass interview, got the job, did the background thing, and they called me today. I disclosed everything on the application, but I got a phone call asking me about some things that happened 5 years ago. Keep in mind that I have NO misdemeanors/felonies. I got a TPO from an ex-girfriend 5 years ago, I made the mistake of calling her and had to pay a 280 dollar fine. I explained it to this lady. She then asked me about a ticket I recieved, it was a "Tampering with a traffic signal" ticket. I explained what happened being I was originally pulled over for speeding, went to court, the officer could not prove I was speeding, so they gave me a lesser charge and a higher monetary penalty. She did not tell me i was no longer needed but seemed understanding on the phone. She asked me why I did not say this in the application and I told her that I did not think I had to because it was not a misdemeanor or a felony so I did not think I had to.
Is this normal, do they call to verify that I am telling the truth, or is it a way to not hire me. I have alot of eggs in this basket if you will and am very concerned. Will I receive a phone call? Letter next? I have never been through this before and am really nervous.
My question is this, is she just making a file on me so everything is good to go or can this bar me from employment?

I had a interview yesterday in Baltimore for a position. I was wondering what everyone things about this. It seemed like they were interested and talked about the location if I get hired where I would be and all. I guess I am more gearing towards the question how long does it take for them to usually call back. They said they will be in touch but just so tempted to put my 2 weeks notice in at my current job. Any advice or help with this question. I read that some people interviewed on a monday or tuesday and got job offer same week is this the case for most or can it be more than that?

I was in an interesting situation with Lockheed Martin as I was contacted by a recruiter who was very enthusiastic and stated he had two positions for which he thought I was a great fit. I interviewed for one position over the phone and was then interviewed in person by the entire team. I think it went very well overall. I then had a phone interview for the second opportunity about a week or so later and I thought that went very well also. Both hiring managers sounded very interested and I can't say anything happened that made me feel they weren't interested.
I followed up with the recruiter and he was again super positive and felt like both opportunities were interested in moving forward.
Fast forward to today - almost 2 months later! I haven't heard a thing since my follow-up with the recruiter. I've emailed and called him but no response. I don't want to to turn into a stalker at this point so I'm on the verge of throwing in the towel.
Anyone else have an experience like mine? I thought if I was being formally rejected I would at least get an email or snail mail to terminate my hopes. Any insight anyone can share would be greatly appreciated as I was super excited about working for this company!

Lockheed Martin is one of the world’s biggest companies with over 125,000 employees around the globe, and at any given time they might have between 2000 and 3000 job openings. So why does it always seem so hard to get hired there?
I’m currently working as a hiring manager for Lockheed Martin, and I put together an e-book on the Lulu publishing network to help answer that question. Drawing from my personal experience with the company’s hiring process, I compiled nearly 40 pages of helpful advice and strategies, including over 100 embedded hyperlinks to additional reference materials on the Web.
I’ll teach you how to make sure your resume actually gets reviewed by a human being, and how to ace the interview once you’re contacted. From tactics for your initial job application to advice on maintaining your security clearance, this book will walk you through everything you need to know about starting your career with Lockheed Martin!

My name is Dylan, and I am currently a senior in college working towards a degree in MIS (Management Information Systems). I recently discovered many summer internships available at Lockheed Martin in Orlando, FL for which I fulfill the requirements. I have always been intrigued by Lockheed Martin, and I think I would be a good fit for multiple positions available. If there is anyone here that could offer any assistance it would be greatly appreciated!

I was laid off a few weeks ago and today a coworker called and said HR interrogated him about my "drug use" and if I were smuggling drugs on site. This can't be legal. It is so random it is impossible to believe but it is confirmed. They have no right to deface my character do they?

Okay im a college student seeking a internship or co-op position with the company. My major is in Business Administration and I have taken countless business classes and have experience in the business world. I have tried to search for a position online via their website but its confusing, heres why:
-On their SEARCH OPENINGS menu they have the keyword field, security clearance field and program field and I have used this to "help" me find something and everytime I search it comes out with 0 results ???
does anyone understand?
IF ANYONE works with LM and can help and guide a poor college student to land a business position with the company or just any job opening thats available ill thank you forever.

I interviewed with Lockheed one month ago today. The interview went great and I could tell that the hiring manager and the rest of the panel really liked me. They told me that they still had a few other interviews but that I would hear from them in a few weeks either way, like I said, that was one month ago. Right after the interview the hiring manager told me that he thought it would be a great career move for me.
I can usually tell if I didn't do well during an interview, but I really feel like I nailed this one. I sent an email to members of the panel to say thank you and got a response from everyone except the hiring manager. About a week ago I also sent him a follow up regarding the status of the position. But he still didn't respond...after the interview he gave me his card in case I wanted to contact him.
What is the deal? Is this normal for this company? Before the interview HR sent me an employment history application, which I suspect was for a background check. I'm just getting nervous because I have several employment offers on the table and with this economy I don't want to screw around. Plus I can't stand sitting home not doing anything.
What could be the reason for this? How typical is a wait from Lockheed? Could it be that there is a hiring freeze?
FYI, I have less than two years of professional experience, but this was an entry level spot. What should I do?? Any thoughts would be great.
