Human Resources Generalist Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at FMC Technologies in July 2014.
Interview Details – Initially contacted about available position after submitting a resume to a posting on a jobboard. I then had to go through a process where I logged into an online site, answered questions and the video was recorded. After interview the video answers were sent to FMC. I was then contacted for a face to face interview with the HR Manager and Payroll Specialist.
Interview Question – Describe a situation in which you made a mistake and how did you handle it? Answer Question
Systems Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at FMC Technologies in April 2014.
Interview Details – I interviewed for a position with FMC Technologies in April 2014. Technically, I was interviewing for a contract position with GHG Corp, but it was understood I would be hired by FMC if things went well. I met the hiring manager in the lobby and went to his office where we talked for about 45 minutes. The interview was very informal. The manager was interested in how much I actually knew versus asking me canned interview question. After 45 minutes we left his office and I met all his employees in a conference room. They each asked me questions which was a little nerve-wracking but they were nice. I left feeling really good about the interview and optimistic I would get the offer. It took about a month to hear back and unfortunately, I did not get the offer. I was told there was a possibility the manager would hire another person later in the summer so I got my fingers crossed I hear from them again.
Interview Question – I do not recall any one particularly difficult question. But the manager did ask a lot of really detailed questions about my current job and how it would apply to the prospective job. You would not be able to B.S. your way through the interview if you weren't qualified! Answer Question
WCS Product Engineer II Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FMC Technologies in May 2014.
Interview Details – I was recommended for an interview by an outside recruiter. The interview took place soon after being contacted. The interview covered past experience as well as a technical q&a. Interviewed with two FMC employees, a manager and a supervisor. I was recommended by a recruiter and only required one interview before receiving an offer. The hiring process is pretty standard and straightforward.
Interview Question – Most technical questions involved stress analysis or strengths of materials type questions. None of the non-technical questions were meant to be very difficult to answer. For example: What is the main type of stress being exerted on this bolt. View Answer
