    Straightforward behavioral interview. STAR format. Very nice people! Two behavioral interviews back to back, 30 minutes each. Extremely quick process, can't ask for anything better. Received a phone call about an offer the following day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    My phone interview went great with my recruiter and I was excited to come in to meet the HR team. I went in person for 2 interview rounds. My in-person interview was not what I expected it to be. In the first round of interviews I was interviewed by 2 HR team members. Throughout the first round, one of the interviewers kept looking out the window while I was providing answers to their questions. The other interviewer noticed her colleague’s behavior as well. In my opinion, I thought that was extremely rude and definitely made me question if I wanted to be part of the team. Not only that, but it was discouraging to move forward into the second round because I had no idea if I was going to receive the same treatment as well. Although that was only one negative experience with one of the Mars’ team members, interviewers need to be well aware that they’re representing their company and it is extremely important to make sure you represent your brand in a positive and respectful manner.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    Multiple rescheduling for the phone screen, which was very annoying. No one contacted me after the phone screen and I found out from a friend who works there that the position was filled. Geez, you think you could have sent an email at least? Very poor candidate experience. I think the TA Team needs to get off their high horse - there are quite a few companies based in Chicago and you're not the same company you use to be. I was excited about the opportunity to work at Mars and am high disappointed in the TA team.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mars (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Received a phone screen by a recruiter to review position and qualifications followed by an in person interview. The process was very professional and well organized and the energy between interview panel was energizing. From the first phone screen to the job offer was about 2 weeks. The background check is pretty advanced, and was somewhat cumbersome as the 3rd party company relies on the candidate to provide information if they cannot document such (I needed to provide W-2's or proof of employment that was more than 10 years old).
