From submitting your application to your first day in MMC
When you apply for a position in MMC, get ready for an enthusiastic reception! We're eagerly rooting for you to be the next brilliant addition to our team, joining us on our mission to generate substantial and lasting value for Maersk.
At MMC, you'll find a group of empathetic and talented individuals who understand the importance of making the right choices when it comes to new team members. We recognize that work is a significant part of our lives, and we know it's a major decision for you as well. Joining us means diving into a world of fascinating and cutting-edge projects, with a team of colleagues who are genuinely excited to meet you.
While the consultancy environment may be different from what you're accustomed to, we want to provide you with a clear understanding of the tasks, projects, and the incredible people you'll collaborate with. In fact, you'll have the opportunity to connect with some of your future colleagues during the case interviews.
We're just as eager to meet you as you are to meet us, so we encourage you to bring your authentic self to the interviews. This process is an exciting journey for both sides, and all our MMC offices are thrilled to welcome you aboard!
Preparing for your interviews
In MMC, we believe that interviews are a two-way process. While it helps us learn more about you, it also helps you learn more about MMC and the people who work here.
The interview process at MMC consists of a combination of case- and personal experience interviews (‘meet interview’). Whether you are familiar with case interviews or not, we highly recommend you to practice to get comfortable with the format. And don’t worry - you do not have to be a shipping expert to perform well in the cases. Before your first-round case interviews, you will receive an email with relevant resources to help you begin your preparations – but remember that there are endless resources available online as well. With the proper preparation, you will be just fine – and in case you are not familiar with the case interview format, check-out this article we have created.
All of our case interviews simulate the real-life problems we try to solve daily. The purpose of these interviews is for you to get a better understanding of the tasks you will work on in MMC and for us to assess whether you have the qualifications required to succeed in the role.

Our people are what makes MMC a special place to work. Therefore, the hiring decision is a big decision that we do not take lightly. We want to welcome new colleagues to the team who want to contribute to our team and culture.
When you have completed both interview rounds, all of our interviewers submit their feedback prior to our debrief session. To ensure a fair process for all applicants and to help us mitigate bias, the feedback is submitted via a survey before the session. Once the feedback is submitted, we discuss the interviewees performance in plenum. To alleviate the risk of groupthink, the team of interviewers appoint one person in the session to act as the devil’s advocate, challenging the perceptions of our interviewers during the debrief session and make sure that our observations are well-founded.
We know how excited you are to hear back from us, so as soon as we have come to an agreement, we look forward to giving you a call to tell you about the decision. As a rule of thumb, we do our best to call you back later that same day or the next coming business day.
Preparing for your first day in MMC
Congratulations on your new position in MMC! We really can’t wait to meet you and look forward to welcoming you to the office!
We know you may have questions before your first day, especially if you are joining our team from overseas, so we will make sure to stay in touch along the way. A few weeks before you start, you will receive an overview of what you can expect your first day to look like. Because we are an internal management consulting team, you will receive two employee handbooks; one that provides you with an introduction to our global onboarding journey in Maersk and a separate one to introduce you to ins and outs of working in MMC, including the cool tools that we use and what makes MMC a special team to join.
On your first day, you will be introduced to your line manager and meet your onboarding buddy. Your buddy will make sure that you get a smooth onboarding and introduce you to the world of MMC.
