    I have been working at Mars Food US full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Mars has great benefits, and offers many additional perks to its associates such as discounted gym memberships, flexible work schedules and opportunities to learn and grow. The company encourages volunteerism and reaching out into the community.

    Cons

    The one thing that Mars needs to work on is stability. The company is continually going through reorganization, and there is very little stability or job security.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Mars Food US.

    Interview Details

    Typically interviews are done through a "Group Selection Process," meaning a group of candidates is brought in and each is interviewed by a panel of peers and managers. They are also tested on various scenarios as they pertain to the position applied for. For example, someone applying for a Sales Analyst position will be given some sales figures and asked to compile a report and present it to the panel.

    Interview Questions
    • The testing of a specific scenario as previously described is the hardest part of the interview process   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Be very careful in negotiating salary. Mars pays a base rate, plus something called a "puncuality bonus." If you show up on time (everyone punches a time clock regardless of exempt/non-exempt status), then you get 10% of the base salary as a bonus. Negotiate based on the base rate, and do not let the 10% factor in. They tend to be ambiguous and misleading about this bonus. Also, if you are applying for a mortgage or other significant loan, the bank will not include this "bonus" in your income because it is called a "bonus." You will have to get a special letter from HR explaining this bonus if you want to include it in your loan information.
