    I have been working at FMC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people to work with, lots of positive reinforcement and the company values the workers there

    Cons

    The company's top leadership appears to want to position the company for a buyout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle is a better system than SAP and who ever set up the SAP system made some major inter company system errors.

    Site Maintenance Manager Green River Wy Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

E may = mc2, but FMC = chemicals. Once in areas as diverse as oil field equipment and food machinery, FMC Corporation now focuses on industrial, specialty, and agricultural chemicals. The company's industrial chemicals include soda ash (it's one of the largest producers), hydrogen peroxide, and phosphorus chemicals. The rest of its sales come from agricultural products (insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides) and specialty chemicals (food and pharmaceutical additives). FMC's equation has improved after a few years' effort to increase its efficiency, profitability, and... More
