The Spirit of Camaraderie

It was the best job I ever had
by Juliana M.

I was hired at 50 to work in Professional Development Programs (PDP) as a clerk in Sunnyvale. We had training programs for suppliers and managers. Refreshments were served at the classes, so I developed a recycling program, sold the aluminum cans and used the money to have holiday parties (Christmas and Thanksgiving). We also raced cars outdoors with hot dog parties. We had such a nice camaraderie. I have it all on tape, and I would like it to be in the Lockheed Martin archives. It was the best job I ever had.
We were so connected, like family. I have such fond memories of my time at Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, plus I get a pension. It’s not much, but it is very much appreciated.
