    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MEC (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    My process was probably different than most. I interviewed for an internship position in the winter. I thought it went well, but never heard back from them. About 2 weeks after graduation, I get a call from someone in HR saying that they had gotten my name from [the woman who interviewed me for the internship] and that she said she thought I'd be more suited for a full-time position since I was graduating. That was on a Wednesday. I had my interview the next Friday. The interview itself was a panel interview. There were 8 of us there and the same HR woman who had contacted me and brought us all into a room and gave us background about MEC's company and culture and explained to us what the interview process would be like. After that, 4 of us stayed on the floor we were on and the other 4 were taken to another floor. From there we were each put in a different room where we interviewed with 4 different members of MEC's Associate Screening Team (they came in one after the other so it was basically 4 1:1 interviews). First interview asked a lot of leadership based questions and questions that gauged how I acted/would act in different situations. Second interview was geared more towards different job experiences. Third was a mix of the first 2 and the last interview was gauging personality (they basically tell you what will happen in your interviews in the first meeting with the HR contact and all other potentials). After that, they walk you to the elevator and tell you that they'll contact you with the next steps. I got a call the next Thursday a little after 5 with an offer.
