Went through an on campus interview, the interviewers took some time to get to know you, then went through your experiences and then had a couple of simple behavioral interview questions. Interviews were very friendly and answered all questions and were very easy to converse with

    Interview Details

    Got the interview from on campus recruiting, after the first interview they contacted me for a phone interview but declined because I had a really good offer from a oil company. I thought the interview was a great person and liked the work he did, I remember asking him "what don't you like about FM Global ?" to which he replied he does not like the pay and wishes the company would pay more.

    Interview Questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at FM Global.

    Interview Details

    I first interviewed with FM Global on campus. They made sure they made it clear that everyone be highly prepared in all aspects. The first interview consisted of an essay to write about my characteristics as well as a 45 minute interview. It was standard...behavioral questions and a few about my resume. Three weeks later I was invited to the second interview in Atlanta. The managers were very laid back and it didn't feel like an interview at all. They ask a few behavioral questions but also inform you of what you would be doing Lunch was awesome. I also had to write another short essay. Overall, it is a very good experience. I received and accepted an offer a week after the second interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FM Global in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email to attend an online information session about the company. I thought that they invited to info session only those that they were going to interview but NOT, which I have no idea about why you would want someone to listen about your company if you are not going to employ them in the first place?...

    Anyways, I did get an email from them eventually about a week after the info session asking me to schedule a phone interview with them to which I wrote back how they would want me to prepare and did not hear anything until I wrote them again on the day of the interview. I was told they would just talk about my work history etc.

    Interview: Seven minutes over and I still did not get a call..eventually I called the number and left a voicemail. Finally the manager calls back and apologizes but was casual about it??

    We start talking and he asks me to describe what I thought the company and the position was?

    Goes on to add some more and wants me to start talking about my work history. Throughout the interview I felt like THEY ALREADY KINDA KNOW WHO THEY WANT AND NOT...interview is just a formality which is sad. Part of it is also the fact that because the position is entry-level, they expect all the people to understand that they will be treated like they are Entry-level..I can't tell you how much he stressed it during the info session and reaffirmed it during the interview. Like someone else said, these people have not left the company for years...and have made themselves to believe that is the only place to be...any seemingly new path to them seems scary and they don't want to hire you if you do not agree with that mindset.

    Example- He told me in the interview that it is a dialogue and very informal and I can ask questions anytime. But he did not give me a chance and neither did I ask...but when he was done, I asked him how he got introduced to the company etc..and then I asked him what did he like the most about the role to which he said the ability to manage and develop the people under him.

    To the worst thing about working there, he said wish he had less stress and more time at hand. Told me that I asked him tough questions but I told him that you said it was dialogue plus I am game if you want.

    He just laughed and said will be in touch, only to receive an email saying I was not selected.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at FM Global in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was 3 stages -- phone, lunch, on-site (all-day)
    Interviewers are highly technical, not your standard HR screeners.
    All were very personable. Be prepared with questions, as all your interviewers will be on-point with time. You will also be asked to prepare a presentation. Make sure you're the expert on that topic as they'll ask questions. The all-day interview is a bit exhausting. The turn around for hearing back is FAST.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via the university's career website. Heard a reply asking to schedule an interview using the career website. Attended a required information session the day before the on campus interview. Had the interview the next day with both speakers from the information session. They did not give an expected response time and it has been 2 weeks and I have not heard from them.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions. Hardest question was probably why you are a good fit for this job and why you want this job. It's a work at home position so they want to make sure that it is something that you want, not just that your qualified. Other questions about teamwork and basic information about yourself.   Answer Question
