    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Mars in January 2014.

    Interview

    I approached them at the career fair at my school, they were very nice and they offered me an interview on the spot for the next day. They definitely wanted to know if I had done my research and what about Mars had made me want to interview for them. After walking through my experience and why I wanted to work there it was a typical STAR method interview. They wrote a lot down, but their faces gave nothing away and after I asked my questions of them, they sent me on my way. Four days later, I got an email with an offer letter!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mars (San Bernardino, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    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.
