Assistant Product Manager Interview

Assistant Product Manager

I applied through college or university and interviewed at MBI.

Interview Details – Applied through school career website. The recruiting process was fairly straightforward: 2 rounds of interviews, one on campus, one on site. Everyone was really friendly, and I enjoyed the entire process.
The on-campus interview was mostly behavioral, nothing unexpected. On-site interview consisted of 4 interviews with people who had been there for various number of years. Also had to take English and Math tests, but those were pretty simple. Seemed like a great place to work.

Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern

Interviewed at MBI

Interview Details – Applied through my university career services website and was contacted for a first-round interview (on campus). Interview lasted 30 minutes, and covered your standard personal interview topics (Why MBI, what are you most proud of on your resume, tell me about yourself, etc.). My advice: Be yourself, as part of what I felt like they were looking for was if you'd be enjoyable to work with (once you've established your qualifications, obviously).

Assistant Program Manager Intern Interview

Assistant Program Manager Intern
Norwalk, CT

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at MBI in March 2011.

Interview Details – On-campus interview with recruiter, alumnus of my university. Asked me to send back a brief "thank you" explaining why I still wanted to work for them after the interview - basically another cover letter. Got a phone call over a month later asking me to schedule a power day, consisted of about 6 1:1 interviews with people in various parts of the company and a really easy math quiz and IQ test. Received an offer within two days. No quant, no cases; pretty much all fit/resume review type stuff.

Very Difficult Interview

Art Department - Painter Interview

Art Department - Painter
Norwalk, CT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at MBI in January 2012.

Interview Details – About me: BA in Painting MSEd in Art Education. Freelance artist/illustrator.

Oh. My. God. what a waste of time. They briefly looked over my portfolio before putting me in an art studio where I was to do a test painting so they could see my skill level. (The interview was to last from 2 pm until 5 pm.) They gave me materials but not everything I needed and told me to copy an ornament EXACTLY. I tried my best. At around 5:30 everyone left and I was alone in this room looking around wondering "What the heck? Who is going to finish this interview?" One of the people that was supposed to "mentor" me popped his head tried to find someone to finish the interview. I ended up seeing the head of the art department who was sort of snotty and said stuff like "You REALLY want to do this work? I CAN'T STAND this CRAP" Insulting! As if I have a choice...I needa job! As if he was so "above it all". He gave me his card, told me to email him to set up a 2nd interview. I emailed him and he said he'd have someone "get in touch". This never happened.

Thinking back...did I really want to work at the dust collector factory with my talent? Not so much.
