MPI CORE VALUES


All of us at MPI are guided by the following Core Values that form the basis of our working relationships with our Participants, our providers, our participating employers, our participating unions and one another.


R - RESPECT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL

We are a group of highly diverse human beings. We celebrate our differences, treat every individual with dignity, and seek out the unique gifts and contributions that each individual can bring to us. Further, we recognize that the work entrusted to us touches the personal and private lives of our Participants, and that trust is of the utmost importance to us.

 

E – ENTHUSIASM AND OPTIMISM

We believe that by working together and living our values, all things are possible, and our belief in these limitless possibilities is a source of great energy for the pursuit of our mission.

 

D - DEDICATION TO EXCELLENCE

We are never satisfied with the status quo, but constantly seek to be and remain the “best of the best” by measurably improving every aspect of our performance.

 

H - HONESTY AND INTEGRITY

We are guided at all times by the highest ethical standards to “do the right thing” for, and to keep our commitments to, our Participants and each other.

We communicate openly and honestly with each other and with our Participants because we know that it is only by sharing the power of knowledge that we can achieve our mission.

 

T - TEAMWORK AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

We acknowledge that each of us plays a critical role in achieving our mission, and therefore are committed to mutual trust, working collaboratively, putting the needs of the team above individual needs, and to holding ourselves personally responsible to keep our commitments to the team.

    I worked at Motion Picture Industry Pension & Health Plans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My time with MPI was wonderful. The people, the projects, and the sense of community were all a huge plus when coming aboard. The company has gone through a lot of change and I truly feel that positive change, and the people committed to making it, has put MPI on the right track. The care, detail, and attention given from the CEO, CHRO, and CIO to both the process and the people really exemplified to me their commitment to making it work. The directors and managers always made themselves available and engaged with employees, concerns, and the MPI community. The current team is a winning combination.

    Cons

    The only possible cons would be the growing pains that come with change. Adoption of new policies and procedures takes time, more so in the case of employees who have been there for many years and are comfortable in their routines. Also, depending on when you start you have to earn a certain number of hours in the qualifying period to become eligible for health benefits. It may take a little longer than what most employees are used to, but when you receive them you'll have an excellent package.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep the employing training sessions active for MPI staff to participate in together. It really builds a strong sense of unity and understanding among employees and departments that may not normally interact on a regular basis. The True Colors session was brilliant as well as the MAGIC training which gave great insight to the daily activities and challenges different departments deal with and universally give greater appreciation for everyones contributions to MPI. In addition, please support the IT department and make sure necessary budgets are allocated to the development and initiatives put forward to continue to improve the systems. A healthy infrastructure is the core to successful and efficient business. This critical component affects everyones job and is essential to all work activity. Keep doing what you're doing, it's great positive change!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Motion Picture Industry Pension & Health Plans (Studio City, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on indeed - and about a week later I got a call from HR. We scheduled my interview, but I got sick and had to reschedule. I came in and had interviews, took some tests and a few days later, I was told I got the job, but they needed to do a background check. All went well.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my previous jobs, how did I handle customer service situations. Between HR and the managers, I thought it went well and smooth. It ended being a friendly conversation   Answer Question
