Title of position interviewed for: Management Trainee
Approximate date of interview: 1/2000
Location: Madison, NJ
Submitted on: 20-Sep-05
MISE management trainees are selected from about 70-80 country
organizations in the AP Moller-Maersk Group. Many are employed in
Maersk Sealand, some in the sister companies Maersk Logistics,
I went through a 3-round process. First, all applicants to ANY job in
Maersk must take the Wonderlic Logic and Reasoning test. Second, the
Predictive Index personality assessment is given to applicants.
Between the 1st and 2nd interviews with a recruiter and the trainee
program manager, I was required to write letters to each interviewer
describing why (a) Telling Maersk about myself, and (b) the qualities
that made me worth hiring for the management trainee program, and I had
to provide 3 references. (MISE) The 3rd interview was an all-day
affair, I was interviewed in 2 sessions by 2 vice-presidents at a time.
I was given a phone call by the trainee program manager the same day,
I was informed that I was offered the position, and that I had 24 hrs
to accept or to decline.
Most important question in the whole process for MISE is: are you
completely flexible about domestic and international relocation? MISE
trainees have a 2 year stint in their home countries working full-time
positions with home tuition, e-learning, and twice a year go to 2-week
educational modules in suburban Copenhagen, Denmark, near the global AP
