    Communications Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    The process was relatively standard - HR phone screen, call with the hiring manager, in person interviews with team members, hiring manager, and VP. Then I was asked last minute to do another phone interview with a peer level employee. After two weeks of radio silence, that I reached out multiple times to HR for an update only to get radio silence. They finally gave me an answer a month after the last interview. Seems to be the new norm that recruiters don't bother to keep applicants updated after the final round of interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mars in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was good. I felt as if they were looking for a male for this position. They told me multiple times that this was a big job and I would be working very hard, get dirty, and sweaty. I felt as if they were disinterested from the beginning due to my female professional appearance. When sharing some of my experience, the main interviewer seemed to shrug off my work experience.

    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    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.
