Reason for Declining – Interviewers made rude comments like asking about my BA degree (also have MS) saying: "so what, you couldn't get a job with that degree?" Fact is I attended Ivy league Architecture school after undergrad. Also, Top manager made moronic comments about SAP ABAP code "and all that crap" - that "crap" is the platform that your company's enterprise data runs on, dope.

Branch Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Airgas.
Interview Details – Great process, lengthy, but very positive. One phone screen, 2 face to face interviews and a third meeting with an official offer.The questions were not technical in nature. I did have multiple interviews and with multiple hiring managers. I traveled at least 2 hours for 2 of the interviews. I didn't feel the interview process was difficult, just read the questions on Glassdoor and be prepared to discuss your abilities appropriately.

Very Easy Interview
Sales Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Airgas.
Interview Details – After applying online, they call to setup a one-on-one interview with the manger over the position. The questions were very basic and behavior based during the interview. In less than a week, they called with their decision.

Staff Accountant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Airgas in April 2012.
Interview Details – The process was fairly easy though a bit lengthy. After the initial contact from one of the company's recruiters, I scheduled a phone interview, followed by an Excel assessment, which was not too difficult. I successfully passed on got the in-person interview with the supervisor, manager, and controller respectively over a week long period. The questions they sent my way were not difficult to answer and it was a straight-forward process, no run-arounds or corporate-speak. I eventually received an offer but still had to submit to a drug test and background check before finally coming on-board. Lengthy? Yes. Difficult? Not at all.
Interview Question – Nothing too crazy. I guess the most unexpected would be "tell me a time you've had conflict with a colleague." Not an overly difficult question and probably not even a guarantee it'll be asked. Just go in prepared. Answer Question
