Select roles are eligible for new hire incentives, including up to $2,000 sign-on bonuses and up to $5,000 relocation lump-sum payments.

The new positions include:

  • Airframe and power plant mechanics
  • Avionics technicians
  • Engineers
  • Painters
  • Planners
  • Sheet metal mechanics
  • Quality inspectors
  • Supervisors
  • Tool makers

To fill these positions, Lockheed Martin is working closely with the state and local government, as well as community partners, such as Greenville Technical College. The company is also participating in several virtual and local career events, including some events that are exclusive to transitioning military service members and veterans.
