I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at Air Liquide (Houston, TX) in March 2015.
Met a recruiter at school career fair. Received an interview a few days later. Recruiter asked questions from my resume and other skills questions. Was like any other interview, but company seems like they were very selective in hiring because of effect on oil and gas industry decline.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Air Liquide.
One round interview process. Interviewer was very nice and only asked the typical behavioral questions. Such as, "Name a time when...." "Have you ever...". I received an offer within a week of interviewing. Overall process was prompt and simple.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Air Liquide.
One on one interview. Very friendly recruiter. Try to go to their information session if possible. Around 10 "name a time when" questions. They perk up when you talk about the community and co-workers there.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Air Liquide in January 2015.
The interview went well, fairly normal questions. If you know anything about the semi-conductor field you should do ok. I was asked to put in a offer, which was about a week ago today. I haven't heard from them as of yet so I'll keep posting. I will say "if your reading this, I was told they have 50+ employees now & by next year they plan to have 150" so job seekers don't hesitate to join they're talent agency, for this is 1 of the steps to get them to review your resume.
- The only question was "what's your biggest strength?" I reviewed some choice answers online then critiqued my own. Answer this question without seeming arrogant but be confident. Hope this helps someone. No one seemed to have a review up for this. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at Air Liquide.
Talked to AL at a campus career fair and a networking dinner. Spoke with 3 of their Chemical Engineers and talked about their positions, the ALLEX program, and company culture. They all agreed that the best part about their job was the people that they worked with, and it seemed like a really relaxed company culture. Had a 1:1 interview with a lot of questions. Went through one round of interviews and then didn't hear back from them for 8 weeks (they told me it would be 4 weeks). With the offer, they said that I would not get a relocation bonus if my school was within 100 mi of my work location, and that I would not know my work location until the spring (after I would accept the offer).

Reasons for Declining
The pay they offered was $22.73/hour with no bonus, and I would not know my work location until the spring.

Applied through University career fair. Spoke with the company at the career fair and they reviewed resume on the spot. First interview was the next day. Second round was two weeks later. It included an on-site plant tour, dinner with current ALLEX members, and then four 45-minute interviews with four different Air Liquide employees

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Air Liquide (Newark, DE) in October 2014.
- Applied through Kaggle, got a couple of phone interviews
- Slow interview process
- Well organized in-person interview with large-corporation niceties (town car pickup at the airport, for example)
- Data science is nascent at Air Liquide. The program felt like a top-down direction from senior management, without much thoughts on actual usefulness to the company. "Everybody is doing it therefore we should as well" kind of mentality.
- The group manager was incapable of telling what I would work on first. Huge red flag.
- The Air Liquide R&D center is mostly chemistry / chemical engineering. The 'applied math' group is a hodgepodge of scientists from various disciplines (process control / optimization, etc...) with only one data scientist on staff so far.
- The Air Liquide R&D center is in the middle of nowhere.
- Recruiter did not bother to return phone calls or send a "no thanks" email afterwards. I had to call the hiring manager directly. The hiring manager declined to provide any feedback on why I was disqualified.

Just a few questions about family. Also, they are very interested in the projects listed on my resume. Many questions about that. Moreover, they ask about why I don't apply for jobs in my previous company Bayer.
