I applied online. I interviewed at MDPI AG (Cluj-Napoca) in Sep 2021

Interview

For the first interview I met with the HR Assistant and another person (but I can't remember their position in the company). They were very friendly so that made the whole interview flow easily. The interview was in english (they test your language abilities) and the questions weren't very hard. The HR Assistant asked me some questions and then described the job duties and then explained to me what are going to be the next steps in my admission process if I pass this interview and the test after (they sent me a Word documnet that I had to edit/answear questions/ paste web links for required information- very easy)

Interview Questions
  • 1. Can you explain what MDPI does? 2. Can you describe your work experience, education, etc? 3. What else can you tell us about yourself that is not found in your CV? (any skills that might be related to the job you're applying to)

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MDPI AG (Bucharest)

Interview

I was called for an interview only two days after applying. There are three interviews in total, and the whole process took about two weeks. During the first one the HR assistant explained everything in detail and asked basic questions. The second is with a department leader in China and is more technical. The third is with the HR manager and is focused on your skills. Although I passed all three interviews, I eventually did not receive an offer.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MDPI AG

Interview

Terribly unfair and unfriendly. The interviewer was very refusing in their behavior. They only wanted to know how much salary I expect and when I said it they started repeating I should look for another job. Even when I asked them questions regarding the position and even though before I passed a very lengthy and difficult test for them.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MDPI AG in Jun 2021

Interview

I've received an email from them after I've applied to the job asking me if I'm still interested. The interview consisted in a Skype call with someone that explained me what I need to look for in the test they'll give me but I wasn't previously announced there is this kind of interview or that is a test. After the training or the overview of what they need for you to pay attention to, I took the test that consisted in editing a text based on my training. After I've got my results I had a HR interview but they didn't mention the salary yet and they needed full time office work so I gave up. There was supposed to be another interview with someone from China.
