Hey everyone. I am interviewing for a Elec & Electr Lab Mech position at the location in Ft. Worth. I want to get some information about that division and what they do so I can be as informed as possible for my interview. Information or tips about finding the information are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Muffin - Do you use LeCroy scopes in the lab? Is this Troy's lab?

I would like to know how one goes about getting an interveiw or getting their foot in the door at the Lockheed Martin, here in Fort Worth, Texas. I live about 6 miles from Lockheed and have 12 years of aerospace experiance. I have tried everything, I have applied online and been to the job fairs that they have been at. I have had freinds walk my resume in, but nothing seems to help. Are they just that hard to get on or what? Could someone tell me something, or who to contact. I am also a veteren, but that doesn't even seem to mean much. I have heard wonderful things about Lockheed Martin, and the people that work there. Just always hoped that one day they would see my resume and give me a chance. If anyone can help, or tell me what I could do, I would very much like to hear from you. Thank you and God Bless!

I got in as a contractor, and I know of many others that did as well. I worked a year as a contractor, then they hired me full time. What are your skills?

I can say its a job.... and yet its a job I plan on retiring from, and most people do who work here, which says alot I think. It has its perks, not many people get to climb into the cockpit of a jet, but of course not everyone here does, but I do occasionally. I work in the engineering department, in the labatories however. I am not involved in the production, only design and developement. I will check around the office and see if there any current openings, I would check out the job fairs that we have listed on the website, there's a few in texas coming this month. (el paso, houston) I personally got temped in by Asgard, and a buddy of mine through Midcom, and like I said we got hired after a year. The jobs you see on the web are hard to get, not to discourage you, but management is required to post positions on web for a certain amount of time, even if they already know who they want to hire. Human Resources tries to overcome a managers preference by picking the best candidate based on his or her resume suited to the job for an interview, so, if the job is "earmarked" the job will be tailored to someones unique resume. ;) Anyways, I work with drawings all the time and we are always redlining them acording them to build and sending them back to get redrawn, maybe your in there somewhere...

Thank you for the feed back, yes I like to play golf, and that would be great, maybe I could get an interview on the 18th green, wow. I have been to a couple of their local job fairs, and gave them my resume. No luck so far, and as far as their web site, I have never heard of anybody getting an interview, or even a job offer through their job site. What you said, all seems to make sense now. Do you work in the big building in White Settlement, the one with no windows? Top Seceret??? I would like to thank you for all your help, I know we don't know each other, but you have been a big help. I don't know if I will ever get the chance to work at Lockheed, but it sure is nice to think about it. You are very lucky, I am very happy for you. Maybe one day we can exchange emails, Thanks again for everything.
