    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mars (Houston, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process is set up by a recruiter hired externally. This was an easy 30 minute interview at which they offered me an in person interview later that week. Overall the communication is poor and by the time they made a hiring decision. I had decided I didn't want to work for them. Pretty basic job for a fancy title.

    Difficult Interview

They asked many clarifying questions and wanted a lot of explanation based on your answers. Was notified after about a week or two that I was offered the position.
