    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MTD Products (Cleveland, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview then 4 hour personal interview. Very personable staff and HR representative but no final determination, just leave a person hanging despite 2 follow up emails and indication that the interview went well. Company is family owned and the campus is large and online reviews by employees were overall positive. Not sure where I lacked in presentation or qualifications but that shouldn't deter someone from applying - still hearing good things about the company overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview also included a lunch with the team which is rather awkward in trying to eat and answer questions fully let alone ask questions while others are eating.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at MTD Products (Valley City, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process included an initial screening at a career fair, then the in-person portion of the interview consisted of a half-hour interview with HR, a one-hour technical interview with 2 developers, a one-hour portion with the entire team (where I was asked to brainstorm test cases for a simple app), and finally, a half-hour interview with 2 managers.

    The behavioral-based questions were standard interview questions (walk us through your resume, strengths/weaknesses, what would a former boss say about you, etc.). The technical questions were smaller algorithm problems in Java that I completed on a whiteboard. They were patient and more interested in seeing how I thought through each problem than whether or not I arrived at the "right" answer.

    Overall, a very positive experience.

    Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MTD Products (Valley City, OH) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very straight forward, nothing too mind boggling. Looks like HR is really putting in some extremely professional employees now as opposed when I was hired. My exit interview gave me the indication that they are taking the first step a lot more serious then they did a few years ago. That was encouraging to witness.

    Negotiation

    There was none.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MTD Products.

    Interview

    Very unorganized. Did two separate phone interviews with two separate HR managers as the first was leaving. The position I initially applied for was offered to someone the day of my initial phone interview. Odd but why not at least tell me then? My time is valuable too. The second HR Mgr. then has me come in to interview for a management position in which anyone can on paper say I'm not qualified for. While constantly having to do all follow up during the entire process and well past their stated follow up date, I finally received confirmation the company feels they need more experience. Of course they do. I feel like they brought me in as a last resort, not a true candidate. It all worked out though as it's better off on both sides. I'm sure part of it was bad timing with their transition.
