Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Praxair (Tonawanda, NY) in January 2015.

Interview

One hour presentation and day long 1:1 sessions with the managers of the groups. Application was to one specific division in R&D. I was hired in as a specialist due to my research in the area they were looking to hire in which meant a higher initial offer. Overall the process was very similar to other companies. Prepare by giving a direct easy to follow presentation of the work you did and its impact.
