    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MPC in November 2017.

    Interview

    When I went to the company for my interview, they told me that the person that's supposed to meet me was away for person reasons and they'll reschedule an interview for me. I left and after about ten mins, someone called and told me to go back to meet with another person for the interview. I went back and there were two interviewers, one was there to substitute the person that was away. They were nice and talked a lot about the company and the position. But they weren't sure if they've asked all the questions that they're supposed to ask. They told me they'll contact me in a few days, but I've never heard back from them yet.
