    Lingting Td Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MPC (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was really nice but what followed with the HR Dept was the worst experience of my life. Offer me to be paid 30℅ under the market price and present me my annual salary with an non guaranteed +8h per week overtime. So the idea of mpc is to present you an average decent salary but you have to do a lot of overtime to get it.

    Reasons for Declining

    I don't like to be robbed. I was just asking for a fair decent salary. I'm ready to do overtime but in this case it's a plus.

    Junior Rigging Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MPC in June 2017.

    Interview

    Entretien par téléphone avec la tête du département rigging, après quelques mails avec un RH.

    J'ai rencontré 3 interlocuteurs différents au long du processus, avec des réponses par mail très corporate (copier coller) avec le second intermédiaire (intermédiaire principal).
    Le premier interlocuteur était un recruteur au MIFA mais il m'a dirigé vers le second. Le troisième était le lead rig que j'ai eu à l'entretien téléphonique. Celui-ci était très pro et bienveillant.

    L'entretien m'a donné une bonne impression mais les correspondances par mail sont trop automatiques par rapport à d'autres boîtes.

    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.
