    Interview

    As many find with MPI, interviews are a waste of time as many positions already have their person picked well in advance. MPI likes to hire within their own groups and thinking outside the box isn't on their mind.

    Report Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MPI Research (Mattawan, MI).

    Interview

    I was referred by an employee. Then 2 weeks later by HR, and 2 weeks later by a panel of 4 managers. Interview questions were the usual and not hard, but only one person asked the questions, which makes it hard to interact with the different interviews.

    Then you meet with 2 others who currently do your job. Then you have to take a short "paper version" of the Wonderlic Test and write a short statement as to why you think you are the best person for the job. You have 20 minutes for both. They never called or emailed to say whether I got the job or not, despite both my and the referring employee emails to get some feedback.

    With the age of tasks being automated, it is so hard for me to understand why so many Corporate HR Departments cannot just send out a general updated response to everyone who applied, or interviewed and didn't get the job. Even sadder still when you try to follow-up and they don't respond. It's just a matter of integrity, respect and dignity of people's time.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when someone was difficult to work with. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MPI Research (Mattawan, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was very easy to get through. But they seem to always have the person picked for the position and no one else has a chance. It feels that the best candidates are looked over for the popular candidate. Which then leads to bad management and bad quality.
