    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Mars in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Multi stage process, very focused on meeting many people of all levels and various departments. There was a phone interview with HR, a 1-1 with the current Director, an assessment day with various elements, then a peer and direct report interview. Most interesting part of interviews/assessement day is case study review & presentation and getting a feel for culture and people.

    Interview Questions
    • Just the case study as such as it's not used in many interviews. It's a good process enabling to see a bit more of the person 'in action' and can work as a good selling tool. Key is to be focused, rested and deliver a good presentation.   Answer Question
