    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mars (Reno, NV) in September 2017.

    Interview

    They expected me to schedule a couple hour interview with only two days notice. I was traveling for work and unable to change my schedule. But I wanted to accommodate any option the following week. They decided to not move forward after that.

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mars (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Basic setup/ First was the recruiter, then in person. The recruiter was very pleasant, as were the two people I interviewed with. However they said they would call me in a couple of days, never did.Very poor follow up., I even called her and left messages and never heard back. I then applied for another position and was told I was not getting an interview because my skill set didn't match. The funny thing is that if you read what skills they were looking for I had over 20 years of experience. I had read others on here that have interviewed and based on their skillsets felt that they did not receive the position based on their age. I also believe that this is the case. If you are over the 40-year-old threshold, I would not even bother applying.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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).

    VMI Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The entire phone interview was asking situational and behavioral questions, which took me by surprise since the majority of phone interviews I've ever had are more relaxed and discussing your resume with the recruiter. My professional background matched the position almost perfectly, but I am not great at answering typical interview questions on the fly so I got the rejection email from HR within the first week.
