    Interview

    Very short, informal interview. They give you minimal explanation of the Job Requirements ... But tell you after, it is sink or swim with them. Do not expect to be trained here. That is non existent if you are an engineer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at FMC.

    Interview

    Applied on the website and received a e-mail a month later to set-up the interview with the hiring manager. I was qualified to do the job and had experience working with all the members of the team however, the hiring manager asked me if I wanted to remove my name from the candidate list because he thought I was only applying to get a boost in pay. Another candidate had already been identified so the manager just went through the motions.

    Distribution Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FMC (Green River, WY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    2 day interview comprising of 6 individual interviews with Department heads and HR. Professional interview with a grand tour of the facility. Very difficult and physically/mentally exhausting interviews, but professional. Ultimately they are looking for a purple dinosaur. There was an issue with one member being prejudicial against prior career military. It manifested during the interview and my executive recruiter had tipped me off beforehand. Ultimately, I may never have had a chance. I addressed the concern - a false stereotype that career military don't deal with civilians. (couldn't be further from the truth). I really don't know what they were looking for. I thought I nailed it all. Good luck with them, - their loss. I really wanted to work for them. Some of the interview sessions were rushed and I simply did not have the time to address all of their possible questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FMC (Green River, WY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Met recruiters at career fair and had a first round interview on campus. The recruiters said that they would pass the resumes onto their supervisor. Got a call from the HR Dept setting up an insure interview a few weeks after first interview. Drove to Wyoming and was reimbursed for mileage. Had dinner with two current process engineers to see how well I got along with the workers. Had breakfast with the supervisor and another employee. Had two interviews on site-one technical and one behavioral. Technical one was similar to a test so they could see your thinking as you worked through each process. Typical behavioral questions. Had lunch with all the process engineers on site. They drove me back to town and showed me different areas of town that I had expressed interest in seeing. Did not hear back for eight weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FMC (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Straight forward questions. Mainly machine design and Mechanics of materials. The interviewer would explain a scenario and ask that you explain your concerns with the design and how it can be improved. Made me draw it out on the board and go over my thought process. It was easy since I had just gone through senior design and presentations were part of our grade.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FMC in July 2014.

    Interview

    Very focused on safety. You are required to use the hand rail up and down the stairs. Seems like a over reaction considering there were only 5 steps. But it there focus. Has a two person phone interview and one week later a face to face. Did not get to see any of the operations or plants I would be managing. Interview with 5 people. The grueling 2 hour interview with HR was total torture. 4 weeks later still being told to wait. They are interviewing the whole world looking for someone willing to accept a low salary. Used ladders to catch job, stated $123 - $200K, salary has know been removed looking for low cost employees I guess. Cost of living (housing) is very very high. Was told relocation included buying house. But relocation package ended up being a grant of money, relocate and temp house yourself.
