    Interview

    Sets of managers interview you with generic interview questions.
    It'll ask you about experiences and ask you to justify why it was "important"... etc.

    Some managers deviate from the questions based on personality... but otherwise just think of a few good job story experiences and be able to justify how it happens to fit the particular story

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.
