Technical Sales/Service Representative Interview

Technical Sales/Service Representative
Chicago, IL

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

Interview Details – I applied online and started off with a phone interview. It involved general behavioral questions by the hiring manager followed by an online skill test the same. This was followed by an in-person panel interview with 6 people at the corporate HQ in Burr Ridge, IL. It consisted of a 15 min corporate presentation followed by 3 one hour interviews with the panelists. It went well and the hiring managers were all impressed with my skill set and the overall performance on the interview day. Unfortunately, they did not extent the offer because other candidate with relevant experience was selected.
