Site Maintenance Manager Green River Wy Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and 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.
Interview Question – Asked if I was only interested in the position for short term gain and would be moving on real quick. View Answer
Reason for Declining – To many lies about the relocation package. Told me everything I wanted to known hoping to lure me in. Did not work. Be very careful and ask a lot of quesitons
