    Production Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at MPC (New York, NY (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call from the head of production who asked me about my background. He then asked me to come in for an interview. Interview went very well with standard questions about your background and where you see yourself in a few years. I was then asked to come back for a 2nd interview to meet with the EP. This was a totally different experience. I was kept waiting for about 20 minutes which is understandable these people are busy and it is a work day. However this interview only last about 25 minutes and she apologized as she had to go off to another meeting. Needless to say I never heard back despite my follow up emails. Personally I would recommend asking the interviewer to come back another day at least make him feel he's getting a fair shot.

    PR Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MPC.

    Interview

    I was told about the open position from a close friend who worked at the company. I noted this in my initial email, which was sent to the general inbox for all US recruiters. I received a call a few days later from the parent company of MPC which I didn't originally recognize and probably set a tone for our later phone interview.

    We setup a time to do a preliminary phone interview/screening. I worked for an agency at the time and referred to MPC as an agency. The Hiring Manager corrected me immediately, stating MPC is not an agency. It was an incorrect use of the word, but by no means a deal breaker. But I got the impression from her response that it was definitely a no-no.

    Two strikes. I didn't have a third. They take what they do very seriously, and with good reason. But I did feel like my overall experience was overlooked due to the fact that I wasn't saying the right thing.

    The interview itself was standard: she asked how I learned about the position, why I was interested in joining the company, my experience with building brands, etc.

    Runner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MPC in December 2014.

    Interview

    I had recently graduated and had applied several times. Finally someone from MPCLA emailed me the interview for a Runner position. She told me to wear a suit and tie which I did. The receptionist brought me up to the roof deck and asked me to wait on a couch. Not long after, a meeting formed which I was sitting adjacent to (about 10 people) as I waited awkwardly for about 40 mimutes for HR to arrive.

    I was incredibly overdressed and uncomfortable as everyone else was dressed in T shirts and jeans. To make matters worse, I was able to hear everything being said at the meeting and I really had no business being where I was. Finally when the HR arrived she brought me to another, more private, couch and began the interview. There were two people from HR, it was pretty straightforward. She asked me when I could start, explained to me the details of the job and asked if I had any questions. She seemed really cold and uptight - standoffish. It was like talking to to a prison guard, she made know effort to comfort or conversate whatsoever and made the job seem incredibly miserable.

    I kept positive and kept insisting that I was interested. It was like she was trying to get me to hate the job.

    After the interview, they told me to wait for a follow up call or email. None of which came. After I emailed and called them they finally told me I didn't get the job.
