We expect you to do your homework on us and we hope you’ll have plenty of questions. 

The following outlines the basic hiring process here at FPA:

Job Opening and Application

Your first step -- visit our careers page, where you can browse existing opportunities.

Candidate Matching/Assessments

If you’re applying for a specific position, your application will be reviewed by our recruiters, who have an in-depth knowledge of the departments and of the needs and requirements of the position for which you're applying.

As a part of our candidate matching process, for most of our technical positions you’ll be asked to take an online technical assessment which you can take from your home computer.

Depending on the position, you may be asked to take a an online job matching assessment as well as an online communication style assessment.

Interviewing Process

Once you speak with one of our recruiters, you may be selected to meet the recruiter for an in-person interview. The recruiter can provide you with more information about your potential responsibilities. In addition, you’ll get an opportunity to meet the team and see the work environment. Naturally, your recruitment contact will be happy to describe the exact selection process for your role and answer specific questions so you can gain insight into the day-to-day requirements and expectations of the position before you consider an offer of employment.

The interview has some structured behavioral type questions but mostly it is informal and offers plenty of time for you to ask questions.

In some instances, a second interview will be required to give us the opportunity to probe further as to the fit. This interview will also give you the opportunity to meet with the department manager and possibly other team members.
