I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FM Global (Rochester, NY) in March 2015.
It was at a college career fair. They were very friendly. At first, I just gave them my resume and we talked for awhile, 10 minutes. Later that day, they emailed me saying they wanted to interview me further the next day. Most of the questions were about my resume. There were also some personality questions. Didn't take very long probably around 40 minutes. A few months later, I got a response saying that they liked my interviewing skills and qualifications, but they would like me to have more experience. They said to contact them further at the next career fair.
