Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Buffalo, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Praxair in September 2012.

Interview Details

I spoke with a recruiter at a career fair and was signed up for a interview on the spot, interview was scheduled a week after career fair. Interview was about 45 min long with the original recruiter i met representing the mechanical side and an additional interviewer representing the chemical side. Interview was both behavior and technical, the behavioral was standard, nothing unexpected or challenging. The technical was very challenging, I was asked to read graphs, explain flow charts even recite equations and troubleshoot a potential problem.

Interview Questions
  • The most difficult aspect of this interview was that i was never told the actual position (and responsibilities) i was interviewing for. I asked several times for more information and was simply told it was a general engineering position and the responsibilities were vague. However when interviewed almost all the technical questions were geared toward a equipment engineering position. All the questions focused on being able to size and choose the correct equipment for a situation, such as sizing a heat exchanger or compressor or choosing the correct type equipement for a given application. Had I known this i would have prepared for the interview much differently.   Answer Question

    The process took a day - interviewed at Praxair in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through the corporate website. Their website is rather antiquated and the resume system they use is nearly impossible to use correctly. I received an email from organization roughly two-three weeks later.

    The interview process was rather straight forward however I was not expecting the significant technical questions asked. This may be unusual since I did not interview with an HR person but a potential manager. However, the interviewer was calm and laid-back and did a very good job walking me through the interview. The interview took about 50 minutes.

    I have not received an offer for an onsite-interview yet but I am in contact with the interviewer. The interviewer hinted to me that the process is slow and will take its time.
