Logistics Planner Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Tonawanda, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Praxair in August 2013.

Interview Details – Had a pretty normal phone screening then invited on site for a long interview with 4 different logistics managers. They show you the software they use to plan and expect you to learn a little bit about it and then ask you to show them what you learned. Two of them were the west planning team and two of them were south. All in all a very enjoyable interview, everyone seemed to actually want to interview you. I received the offer but had to decline.

Interview Question – It was mostly general questions, why are you interested in praxair, why are you interested in logistics, tell me a time when you had to implement something that wasn't very popular. Behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined due to personal reasons and moving to Colorado. I would have accpeted under any other circumstances.

Commissioning Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Tonawanda, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Praxair.

Interview Details – Applied online. Resume reviewed by HR in Tonawanda, NY. Telephone interview with couple of managers followed. Then was asked to come in for a face to face interview at the office. Interviewed with several engineering managers over a period of 5 hours. Final interview with HR. Got the job!

Interview Question – Behavioral questions are tricky. Be consistent in your answers. Situation given and was asked what would you do if you were to take a decision and why.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate pretty good since I already had a job offer from another company. Take advantage of multiple job offers and ask for "sign on bonus" and relocation package.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Praxair.

Interview Details – The first one was a phone interview with the dept manager. After 3 weeks, I received an communication from the recruiter saying that I was going to a person interview. The company was paying for the interview trip. The next one was a panel type interview with 4 people. One of the Directors, two managers and a HR representative. The presentation and questions took an hour. The people were very very nice. Knowledgeable and interesting to talk. They made all to make me feel comfortable. Overall, from the first interview to the final offer took 2 months.

Interview Question – No trick questions. Be careful what you put on the presentation. Most of the questions are coming from your presentation. Many of the questions were situational questions and behaviour based questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The offer was in a different city that I applied for.
