    Web Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Paralegal Interview

    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

    Telecom Expert Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MTD Products (Valley City, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Painful. I sat in a room with 5 junior IT guys while they probed me about expert level knowledge I had. The interview was more about these five guys not being found out by someone smarter. The company has implemented a new call center platform, and it hasn't worked in the year it has been installed. The people who made that decision did so against the advice of someone who knew better. The someone who knew better is gone, and there are now IT people sitting around trying to figure out how they keep their jobs, but they can't hire a person who will tell the truth about what they have done.

    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.

    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.
