    Interview

    I applied through on-campus recruiting. After 1-1 interview on campus, had 1-1 interviews with 8 directors at headquarters. Questions are mostly behavioral and about past experience. Also, a lot of "why" questions were asked. Having good understanding about the company's business and the industry would impress you. Asking good questions is also important.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked if I was only interested in the position for short term gain and would be moving on real quick.   4 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

    To many lies about the relocation package. Told me everything I wanted to known hoping to lure me in. Did not work. Be very careful and ask a lot of quesitons
