    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FMC Technologies (Houston, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    After the initial phone screen, you are asked for a face to face with the hiring manager. If the hiring manager wishes to proceed and depending on the level of position, you are brought in to interview with HR and maybe the CIO. Scheduling and timing for this process takes months, so be patient.

    I rated the interview process a negative experience, not because I did not receive an offer, but because of lack of communication. As an applicant, you are left in the dark as to where you are in the process, even though are are on of the top candidates. It makes it difficult as most of us are interviewing with other companies and most are transparent and open about their process and the candidate is more open and transparent about where they are in the interview/hiring process with other companies sometimes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FMC Technologies (Houston, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and received an email within a few days. I set up and interview that lasted 30 minutes. It was more of a conversation than grilling questions. We talked about travel and countries we have been to and would like to go to. I believe it was more of a personality gauge than anything. The next week I received my offer letter and instructions for a drug test.

    Straight forward questions. Mainly machine design and Mechanics of materials. The interviewer would explain a scenario and ask that you explain your concerns with the design and how it can be improved. Made me draw it out on the board and go over my thought process. It was easy since I had just gone through senior design and presentations were part of our grade.
