    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FM Global (Cleveland, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Campus interview. Got invited to site about a week later. Day started off with 3 rounds of interviews with groups of managers, all asking a certain question with specific examples. Then you broke for lunch with location manager. After that we had the opportunity to meet a relatively new engineer to ask questions, had to make a presentation on one of the topics on the FM Global website (such as flash points or dry systems) in front of all the managers you interviewed with. There was also a personality test you had to take prior to going to the interview.
    I think I made some stumbles not answering their questions directly or giving stretched answers to some of their questions as opposed to being direct.

    I heard back after 3 weeks that I was not selected.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FM Global.

    Interview

    I interviewed after an on campus career fair. This interview was more of a get to know you/see if you're a good fit for the job.

    I was then invited to interview at one of their locations. This interview was more in depth, I interviewed with multiple people. You will need to provide a writing sample, the prompt was very easy, nothing to be stressed about. Be prepared for many behavioral questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FM Global (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Formal interviews with multiple people that took one day. Very corporate with approvals needed from corporate for many items. A concencus is needed for hiring, however, one upper management perceived unfavorable mark will kill the opportunity. Good interviewers probing the necessary skills for job success. Tools and training will be provided to ensure your success. Great internal environment and relationships between peers. Great people to work with.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FM Global in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a formal interview with direct manager, a senior manager and another senior team member. This was a group/panel type interview that began with a brief summary of the what the role entailed. Subsequently, I was asked to describe my last two roles and what my responsibilities where. This was followed by questions from the hiring manager and then questions from the other interviewers in the room. The last 5 minutes was dedicated to question and answer session where I was given the opportunity to ask questions. I was told I will hear back from them after they have concluded their interview process.
    I got a call from my recruiter 2 days later that the job was offered to me and I gladly accepted and stated two weeks later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FM Global.

    Interview

    This was a mock interview. The interviewer was very friendly, and the interview felt conversational. He started off by asking me why I chose FM Global--he wanted to see if I knew what made FM Global different and better than its competitors. He also asked me what I knew about the field engineering position, and explained anything I didn't know, providing many anecdotes. He asked me one or two behavioral questions. I didn't get any questions based on my resume.
