    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fortive (State College, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a through and through behavioral questions. The interview was an hour long. A set of 5 questions was asked in the first half hour by one person and the same set of questions was asked by another person in the next half hour. The interview gets boring as the questions get repetitive.

    Entry Level Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fortive (Raleigh, NC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a rather long process, with two 45 minute interviews. The first one was with an engineer and the second was with someone from HR. They were both all behavioral questions. Prepare a couple experiences to speak on where you overcame adversity, conquered a goal, or did something different and you'll be fine. Wasn't too bad overall though, and the interviewers were very friendly.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fortive (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral. Two sets of interviews within 1 hour. First interview was friendly and wanted me to relax and just have a conversation. Consisted of 5 main questions all around your past experiences. The second interview was with a more technical person. Pretty much the same questions but they would ask you more technical questions regarding your answer. Still pretty lax though.

    FP&A Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fortive (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Still haven´t got any feedback from the company. They didn´t call me or send any e-mail. I tried contact through phone and e-mail and got no answer. Neither the recruiting company nor Fortive gave me no feedback so I ´m not sure what happened, if the position was frozen, if I didn´t have the skills or if there was just someone more proper at the moment.
