    IT Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Leonard Wood, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MPRI (Fort Leonard Wood, MO).

    Interview

    Applied on-line and got an e-mail very quickly from someone in HR. The site lead e-mailed a days days later to setup an on-site interview. A week or so after the interview I was told I was a great fit but I needed to get two certifications. I did so in short order and let them know and then never heard from them again. Poor poor communication skills by the site lead. Also none of the team members seemed terribly happy when I toured the facility.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a year or more. I interviewed at MPRI in February 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process should not take 5 years (60months) Which is what happened and is well over 365 days this only shows that your recruiter are unable to do their jobs correctly. Because of this I had lost my clearance.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, it was a take it or leave it deal. I asked for some things, and they said they would provide or ensure it would happen, it never did. Failure to uphold their contract.

    Mentor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MPRI in October 2009.

    Interview

    This is a military focused company that specializes in bringing the skills of Retired and Ex Military Service Members to foreign Armies. There is very little need to "ace" an interview if your resume speaks directly to your military experience. Usually, the hiring process works on a by name request by either the section leader, team leader or section member to the Program Manager who will either approve or disapprove a request to hire an individual based on his ability to fit the job description. This will be based on his military rank, experience and MOS. If the Program Manager approves, the request to hire candidate will be sent to the corporate office in Alexandria, VA and the candidate will receive an offer letter within a week. The other method would be simply to apply online at www.mpri.com and fill out the online application and post your resume. If your qualifications match up with any of the positions, a recruiter will contact you via telephone and conduct and on the spot interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Will your limited years in the Army allow you the capability to mentor future leaders in the Afghan Army?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It is all based on the contract that was negotiated by between the company and the Army. Understand that it will require a personal sacrifice for the employee and their family because of the long term separation by living and working in a foreign country, most likely a combat zone.
