    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Air Products (Allentown, PA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was very impressed by the openness and transparency during the interview process. I first received a phone screen with an HR representative, who went over basic requirements for the position and discussed compensation at a high level. A few weeks later, I was called to an interview with the hiring manager; it was a panel-style interview with another engineer. What I liked the most was the laid-back style during the in-person interview. Instead of scripted questions, it focused on organic conversation, which really allowed both of us to determine if it was a good fit or not. Overall, I got a good vibe from the hiring manager and felt I was a good fit for the role.

    I received an offer exactly at the salary requirements I requested, so there was no need to negotiate. That was very nice. Start date was very flexible and I got the general feeling they really went out of their way to work with me (I wanted to wait about a month so as to finish up a project in my current role).

    One last point: there doesn't seem to be some 'black hole' between the offer and the start date like there is at some places. I have very explicit instructions moving forward to call HR a couple weeks before I start to set up my accounts and streamline the whole on-boarding process. I'm assuming the main reason is payroll. That was new to me, and very welcome.

    My one critique is that it seemed a bit slow at times. Had I been actively applying places instead of passively looking, I probably wouldn't have been available by the time they called me back for the in-person interview. Especially with the labor market tightening, a good candidate with a STEM background will rarely last a month anymore.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Air Products (Houston, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    They want low cost candidates, being seasoned I went in knowing I was over-qualified and outside the range of pay. I was essentially used as a reference which is fine it happens. What is disturbing is that they wanted my presentation and plans, aka free consulting work. I was used as the bar based on my extensive experience.
    What is disturbing is that they have refused to reimburse me for my travel expenses.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would I want this job based on my experience, since the processes are pretty well established. (This seemed odd since two managers on the panel were presenting different realities)   1 Answer
    • Would you interview with Air Products again?   1 Answer

    Logistics Scheduler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Air Products in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the HR guy in Allentown PA that my resume was received and they were interested in me coming in for an interview. Sounds great. Was told I would be contacted within 2 to 3 days to schedule an interview, never heard anything from them again. Called 4 times and left a message each time, 2 out of the 4 times the mailbox was full. Then got an email 4 weeks later that they were not interested anymore. It just goes to show how un professional the company is and glad I didn't go in. People like this give recruiters a bad wrap. Unprofessionalism goes a long way with me, could not be more thankful that I didn't get a call, just got a job with an amazing company that puts this company to shame.
