    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at MEC.

    Interview Details

    You apply with a resume online on their careers website, and someone from the HR department will contact you with a phone interview, then an in-person interview. The questions are always the same, behavioral stuff that you can BS your way out of. The phone interview was really simple, maybe 15 minutes? And then the in person interview took about 45 minutes with a panel.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at MEC.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via a recruiter who did a prescreening over the phone, which was very brief. He basically wanted to see what types of roles I would be interested in. I then did an in-person interview with two different people. Pretty casual, more like a conversation that an interview. I was offered the position later that same day.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at MEC.

    Interview Details

    A human resource recruiter reached out to me via email to arrange a phone interview. First incident she never called during the scheduled time and was IMPOSSIBLE to reach after. Never picked up telephone calls, never answered emails so I stopped reaching out to her. Second incident she reaches out to me to recruit me for another job, which we actually got to speak over the telephone but then she informs me job is placed on hold and can you guess what happened after? It was impossible to get a hold of her and I don't know if the job is filled or still on hold and it has been six months later. Very unprofessional HR staff.
