    Interview Details

    The interview was kind of intimidating, long, and I had to fill out a bunch of questions when I got there, waited almost an hour before they talked with me. All older European men.The most frustrating was at the end of the interview, I still wasn't sure exactly what I would be hired to do.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Mediterranean Shipping Company in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very informal. You will meet with branch manager and department manager. Usually they will interview several candidates for each open position and get back to you within 1 week. No HR reps at the branch offices so each experience will vary a little. They are generally looking for inexperienced hires, so if you have industry experience make sure to express how open minded you are to learning the "MSC way."

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really too challenging. Just basic personality questions (ie tell my your greatest strength).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mediterranean Shipping Company in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was impressed with 'brand name' companies I previously worked for. Did not ask difficult technical questions. Kind of assumed I had the skills necessary because I came from large reputable companies.

    Personal chemistry is very important to interviewer. Appreciates confidence, maturity and high energy levels.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Interviewer not prepared to negotiate a higher package than last drawn pay. Perhaps in part because I was already drawing near to their ceiling.
