    Granted interview through friend of a friend, the interviewer was very approachable but she seemed a little preoccupied with how many job seekers she had to meet with that day.

    Human Resources Role Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Mettler-Toledo in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Too many hours invested. I had over 13 hours invested alone strictly in interviewing, another 4 in prep and another 2 hours coordination and travel, before I was ruled out. This plodding process was echoed in other Glass Door reviews. Lack of definitiveness and trust amongst those involved in the process guised as thoroughness.

    Interview Questions
    • There were several questions asked by several interviewers involving impossible situations. One was about two different, yet unrelated items, both 100% critical and required being due in the same day, for example. Another one was about being able to change the culture in 30 days from something that had gone one for 30 years. Caution: Believe they take and pass on thorough notes so the ones that come later in the interview process may have prejudged you in a detailed manner and in a way that the interviewer captured.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt the micromanagement style within the department was too time consuming and the amount of time dedicated to recruiting was limited. They did not have a sophisticated applicant tracking system or method of reporting that was efficient therefore the manual nature by which everything is done made every position heavily administrative.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mettler-Toledo in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Overall the interview process went well... They were responsive in communicating with me, and gave me a few scheduling options. I met with a panel of people for a technical interview, and with a few levels of management. Although, I did not expect to be called back for a 2nd interview, it went as well as the first. Do know they call ALL references, so be honest on who you put on (they will want past management, and professional)

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Mettler-Toledo in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    I met with the hiring manager and went through mostly just the basics of my working styles and my preferred working environment. I felt that more than an interview it was a "feel me out" kind of situation. I did however know I got the job when i left the interview. I think they make it a habit of making this kind of thing pretty obvious.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Mettler-Toledo.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from HR after applying through a job portal. They did a detailed screening of my profile, and scheduled an interview. Interview process is quite lengthy, to begin with there was a written test on programming which had about 15 questions on data structures and java, an aptitude test which had about 50 questions, and one more paper related to OS. Once cleared I had a tech round of interview and was informed that manager was not avail, finally, HR told me there would be a telephonic round of HR interview and would confirm the following day, sounded positive saying that would be about salary negotiations and general discussion.

    I didn't get a call as promised by HR, so I'd called back to check my interview status, they said by EOD I'd get a mail. Finally, I got a mail saying job requirements doesn't match my skillset, and was rejected. This interview is clearly a time pass one for the company, and wasting candidate's time.
