    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Praxair in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    A representative from Praxair contacted me on a Monday after viewing my resume on CareerBuilder. The representative described the position to me, asked me a few general questions about my background, and then asked me if I would be interested in conducting a phone interview. The phone interview was the Thursday of that week. The phone interview was with the hiring manager and a member of the HR team. The phone interview was a chance for me to verbally discuss my resume and then a few behavioral questions were asked. After the phone interview was complete the hiring manager told me that I should hear from them within the next week or two. I was emailed the following Monday that I was selected for an in person panel interview. My in person panel interview was held at The Woodlands office the following Wednesday. I was then contacted on the next Tuesday to schedule one last phone interview with the Executive Director for the next day. I was called and extended an offer on Thursday.

    Development Associate R&D Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Praxair.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed on-campus by a manager of an R&D unit and was invited to interview on-site. They flew me up to Buffalo, and I had a very nice dinner with a manager I was interviewing with the next day. On the day of the interview, I gave a 45 minute presentation which turned into an hour since the audience was very active in asking questions throughout. My schedule included a mix of managers and Development Associates from the R&D units where I could possible fit in. The two associates that I had lunch with were actually from the unit from which I got my offer so maybe there is a game here to see which unit is especially interested in you. Overall, the interviews were congenial without gotcha questions. I was just myself and stayed engaged the whole time. I did not take advantage of the opportunity to stay on another day and tour Buffalo with a realtor, but I wish I had in retrospect.
