    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.

    There are people from different departments in the interview that also have input with your hiring manager. Very laid back and the questions are pretty common for the most part.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    The process was fairly straightforward, one interview with two individuals. It was quite lengthy with mostly behavioral based questions that you can easily answer in STAR format. 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.

    GLDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hackettstown, NJ

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mars (Hackettstown, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview experience with Mars, Inc. was extraordinary. Having interviewed with multiple top companies who were recruiting MBA talent, what stood out to me was the tone and culture that Mars used to guide the entire recruiting process. While many competing organizations put me through grueling interviews focused on testing only my intelligence and mental agility or pushing me to my emotional limit, Mars truly focused on trying to get to know me as a person. It was obvious from the beginning that they were confident in my abilities to perform, but wanted to take the time to see if I would be a culture fit with the organization. Ultimately, that's what set Mars apart from the rest in the recruiting process for me.
