    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FM Global.

    Interview Details

    Interview 1: Basic interview where I was interviewed by 3 people (2 engineers and 1 HR). The Interview last about an hour and consisted of a couple behavioral questions, but mostly they just talked about me and what I've done in the past. It was a very laid back interview and they were very nice.

    Interview 2: Took place at a Headquarters in St. Louis and was about 4 hours long. I again met with about 2 high ranking engineers and a client annalist. Many behavioral questions and more thorough review of my experiences. Lastly I met with the same HR Lady who talked about benefits and I took a personality test. Very nice people and the atmosphere was very relaxed.

    Brand Assurance Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FM Global.

    Interview Details

    The internal recruiter was the warmest and most professional person in the process without a doubt. After that I felt like they were all going through the motions. I met with 2 people in the office first and they asked me questions off a list. If they liked my answer they wrote a mark next to the question. Pretty basic stuff-what do I know about the company, how did I hear of the job. I then interviewed with 3 managers via teleconference. These questions were also read off a list and were behavioral in nature-"how would you react if..." They also inquired deeply into my skills and emphasized what I was lacking. The hiring manager stated that they advertised the position under different job titles to attract more people, and that they really weren't hiring for the job I responded to. I received a rejection letter, via email, after asking about my status, 9 days later. After putting a huge amount of effort into the skills test and my interview prep. I was extremely disappointed after finding out that they really didn't want someone with my background. I don't really know why I was selected in the first place.

    Interview Details

    I applied through university recruiting site and got a call from the HR to set up the interview as they were going to come for the career fair. I was asked general basic questions. The HR spoke more about himself and the company. Overall a good experience. Later he told me that he will give the feedback to the manager and they will call me if they are interested.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FM Global in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    FM Global visited our university and were recruiting there. They took resumes and of course asked everyone to also apply online. After about 2-3 weeks, they sent an email through the university recruiting website to sign up for an on campus interview.

    The interview was conducted by the same representative I had met at the career fair. She told me a bit about the company and the position itself. After that, she asked me about myself and a few situational questions. The questions were not very difficult. I was asked if I had any questions and she ended by telling me I should hear back in about a week.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not difficult.
      1. Tell me about yourself. What motivates you? What drives you?

    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

    Interview Details

    I first met this company through a school career fair. Two people came, one was a recent graduate of my school the other was the recruiter. Both helped describe the position very well and actually made it seem like they wanted me. I had an on campus interview the next day which was more like a screening with very basic questions. I got called in for an on site interview which was a bit tougher. I got interviewed by three individuals who all asked behavioral questions and questions about my resume.
