    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Praxair (Cahokia, IL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed in Cahokia with three people and one on the phone. I was told if you are what we are looking we will call you. Got a call about 5 weeks later and invited back for a 2nd. interview. This interview went really well, I thought, they told be what the salary would be and that I would be going to Chicago for a month of training. I was then told by the plant manager that I would be contacted in a couple of days with their decision. I was contacted later that afternoon by the plant manager in Chicago who said that she wanted to set up a phone interview with me for the next day. This phone interview lasted about 45 min. I then got a call from HR asking me to fly to Chicago in two days to tour the plant that I would be training in. I spent the day in Chicago and every thing went well,I thought! They flew me back home and I did not hear anything for about three weeks so I called the plant in Cahokia and was told by the plant manager that everything was still looking good and that it was now in his bosses hands. I then contacted them again about two weeks later and was told by the plant manager in Cahokia that the girls in Chicago did not think that I had the leadership qualities it took to run the lab. I contacted the HR person in Chicago and she said that Cahokia had sent two people up that week and she thought I did fine with the interview but who they hired was up to them. Have not heard anything since and the job has reposted on the Praxair web site

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Praxair (Torrance, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Called in for an interview, only the one lab manager was available as opposed to the two that the previous applicant received (he was just walking out as I walked in). I was asked to go through my resume, asked standard questions, and then given a short walk around of the testing and filling stations. I asked a few questions and it seemed to go reasonably well.

    Clerical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Trevose, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Praxair (Trevose, PA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It was a very pleasant interview with the worker. Being that it is a government paid nonprofit organization, the overall process took a lot of running around getting paperwork together. I did not like the fact that I had to get a statement from my neighbor, as i am very new to the neighborhood

    New Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethlehem, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Praxair (Bethlehem, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed by recruiter with basic questions (it was quickly evident that my resume essentially read like the job description). Follow up by hiring manager with positive outcome, date to be set up to be interviewed in Headquarters. On next call was told that there had been a mistake and that someone else who they did into think was going to take their job did. I smelled ageism just by the way the hiring manager stumbled and tried to give me the new story. It was not convincing in the least.
