    Manufacturing Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mars in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    "Interview" was set for 10am. Sign in at front desk and watch a safety video with around 15 other people. At 11am called back to a room with everyone else waiting for a interview. Told to pick a computer to use and there wasn't enough laptops for all of us. Started filling out the same application that had previously been filled out online. The computer screen freezes constantly, other laptops weren't charged up enough to use. Zero help from the interviewer, as almost everyone in the room was having computer problems. At 12pm my laptop freezes up again and will not advance to the math skills test. There was no interview! Most horrible hiring process with a company I have ever had. This was in Cleveland Tn.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mars in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met at campus career fair. Received an email later that day to do a half hour 1:1 interview with the same recruiter I had met at the career fair. Questions were very straightforward and included mostly resume rundown and behavioral based STAR questions. Was told I would hear back within a week whether I had made it to the second round of interviews but I did not hear until about a month later, at which point they informed me I was no longer qualified as a candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly behavioral. If you bring up the Five Principles and find ways to relate it to their questions and things on your resume they'll be impressed.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via e-mail and had a phone interview set up. The day of the interview, I waited over an hour for the recruiters call. When I called to check if the interview was postponed, I was transferred to different voice mails and never received a phone call back. Very unprofessional.

    MPC Activity Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Bernardino, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Bernardino, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mars in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received a message from the Talent Acquisition Manager to call back. When I contacted her, she conducted a brief screening phone interview. I was told that qualified candidates would be called the next week to setup an interview. Three days later, I received another message to call her back. She called again a few hours after the first call, but did not leave a second message. When I returned the call, I got her voicemail and left a message. She did not return my call until 2.5 business days later, but again did not leave a message. When I called back that day, she answered but said to hold, placing the handset down onto a surface; after about 5 seconds of background noise, she hung-up. With the possibility the disconnection was in error, I immediately called back, but got her voicemail. I left a message, but never heard from her again. What a shock to experience such unprofessional behavior. If this is how they treat job candidates, I can only imagine how they treat their employees.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hackettstown, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Hackettstown, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mars in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first point of contact was what appeared to be an automatically-generated email, which which instructed me to contact the HR person to schedule a phone interview.

    The phone interview was brief and used primarily for information-gathering on both sides. An in-person interview was scheduled shortly thereafter, via email.

    The second interview was with a small group within the hiring department, which lasted for just under an hour. The HR rep gave a brief facility overview and tour before we met with the team. Questions ranged from past positive and negative work experiences to where I wanted to take my career in the future. They did not ask many technical questions, aside from basic software application familiarity. They also delved a bit into questions about life outside of work. By the end, the team had asked a very well-rounded group of questions, and I felt that I was able to convey everything that I would have wanted in an interview.

    Upon leaving, I received a large box of their product and was told I would hear 'in a few days.' I sent follow-up thank you notes, but never received any further communication, direct or indirect.
