    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    Applied through email by sending my resume to the manager. I received an email back and we set up a call. The initial call was laid back and I was asked to talk about myself. Afterwards an in person interview was set up which was more difficult and I went through multiple rounds of people on the team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a phone interview and they put it out about a week. After every question I would answer to the fullest of my ability and the interviewer would kind of.....push me in a direction. Not like “can you expand further on that?” or ask certain things that needed clarification. It’s like they wanted me to say certain things. Was pretty odd. Also felt like she might have been talking to someone beside her or something. There were long drawn out pauses before she’d say anything and almost like she muted her audio then she’d come back on the call. Then she straight up told me I didn’t have enough experience (even though I have everything the ad said and more) and said she’d “push me through” to the next round. Thanks? Was a really odd and awkward interview. Took about 3 whole weeks before I heard anything and they turned me down through an email.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    I interviewed with them for a Finance internship after meeting them at a career fair at my university. It was very pleasant and upbeat and they seemed to really care about what was best for my future! They were very easy to talk to and wanted to know what I was passionate about and what drives me to want to make a difference in the world. This was the interview I enjoyed the most out of all my internship opportunities!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mars (Nashville, TN (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a phone screen with recruiter, then another with the hiring manager, then Skype interview with hiring manager and another team member. Mars is a really great company, the people I spoke with were all great, and I asked the interviewers for feedback on my qualifications at the end of my Skype interview and they had very helpful feedback. I am a little miffed because they ended up hiring an internal candidate, which seemed to be what they wanted in the first place given the state of the current project. I don't understand why they would get my hopes up and even interview external candidates when they had pretty much already decided their needs required an internal candidate. I would certainly apply to Mars again, and would love an opportunity to work there, I just wish they wouldn't waste the time of external candidates if they would rather hire internally.

    Provided a case study for me that I was to present in the interview - followed by several competency based questions. The case study is typical for any manager level or higher.
