It is highly recommended for new job seekers to search or apply directly to Lockheed Martin website for open positions. On the Lockheed Martin website, you will be able to update your cover letter and résumé that will be tailored toward each job description you are qualified or applying for.

At this point, you will be at stage 2 of the process. There are 5 stages that you have to go through. Stage two is part of your interview. However, it is called assessment stage e.g taking PSI test and other things.

If you are not touching an aircraft physically at the Lockheed Martin facilities, at this stage you might be invited in for an interview. It is critical that you must arrive on time for your interview. Arriving on time is part of your interview at Lockheed Martin. And if you are fortunate enough to arrive earlier to reduce the chances of being nervous in the interview room, be careful what you say and how you behave around the  Lockheed Martin premises and even in the bathroom or restroom. You never know who is going to be your interviewers or a person that is going to interview. Many new job seekers in the past have be surprised to learn that the very person they scoffed at the hall way or bathroom is the same person interviewing you. In other major companies, most managers or supervisors normally will kick  things in the restroom to gauge your response or drop thing to see if you will walk past them as if nothing happened.

In other words, an interview for an new job seekers normally starts at the gate entrance of most companies.

Pre-Employment Assessments

Pre-Employment Assessments PSI Test

In my own opinion, do not waste your time and money buying software or paying for online companies that are claiming that they can help you pass the PSI test by signing and paying for their services.

Gears, Pulleys and Springs

The first on the Pre-Employment Assessments PSI Test is about gears and pulleys and which direction the gears go. The second section is a also about which diagram of the weight would  drop the fastest or would be the easiest to pull.

There are several questions on pulleys and which has more weight on it.  And also there are compression question like if the spring is on and if it turns this way is the spring being compressed or extended?

Math Section

The hardest section for most students is the math.  There are approximately 60 questions with 3 timed sections to complete. 

The first section is easy math: add, subtract, multiple, divide and some decimals. 

The second section is all fractions.

For example: Find 4/5 of 1/7

4/5 of 1/7 is four times that much, or 4/35

The third section is fractions with whole numbers.

Find 3+ 7/8 = ?

3  7/8

Do not take so much time on math sections. First math section has 2 minutes, second math section has 2 minutes, and the third section has 4 minutes. Once the time is up, it is will show on the computer that your time for that section is up and then you have to go to the next one. So, do not spend a lot of time on math section. Just go through all of them and answer the once you can manage and if you have time go back and go through the once you know you know you are correct.
