    I applied online. I interviewed at Praxair (North Haven, CT) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There was 2 phone screens and then an in plant interview with a panel: Tried contacting for feed back 3 weeks later, no one to answer questions. I put a lot of time in for these interviews and they could be professional and let you know either way.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Praxair.

    Interview

    Got an on-campus interview after job fair. The interviewer was friendly and encouraging, and the questions were 90% about my research experience. I was under the impression of being a good match, and tried to follow up after the interview but didn't get any response ever.

    Interview

    I had applied for a position at Praxair sometime in June 2017. I was contacted by the recruiter and I later gave the recruiter my available date and times for an interview with the hiring manager.

    The exact date of the scheduled interview was never confirmed with me by the recruiter and I suddenly received a call on June 28 from the hiring manager. Obviously I had to request that the interview be rescheduled because the date and time was not confirmed with me. The hiring manager agreed to that as well.

    Since that day June 28, 2017 I am constantly following up with the recruiter for a date when I can reschedule the interview as asked by the hiring manager. She suggested some date and times and I even gave the recruiter a schedule from those suggested by her. After that I even took a half day from work assuming I would be receiving a call from the hiring manager but to no avail.

    There has been absolutely no communication from the recruiter in this matter and I am aimlessly following up every week.

    Praxair is a great corporation that I was excited to be interviewing with and with hopes of being a prospective employee. I am thoroughly disappointed at the way this process is being conducted and this leaves a negative impact.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Praxair (Lancaster, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for job, heard from the hiring District manager within two weeks of applying. Had a 10 minute phone conversation with a few questions about safety and my background. Was called for a in person interview two weeks after that. At the in person interview, I was asked about my sales back ground and if I was a welder, or had any knowledge of the welding industry. Spent 45 minutes in the interview, that became more about the companies lack of a training program and that they had no internal way to cross train current employees to move into other roles. I asked about how I would learn the position and was told I would be handed the keys to the building and basically had to figure it out, and would have to have the counter sales associate fill me in. I was told the career path and given a tour of the location. I left the interview with a distinct felling that I was very over qualified for the job they were hiring for, and my lack of being a trained welder would be the deciding reason I would be passed on. They were not looking for a manager candidate, they wanted a salesperson that could do some paperwork. Two weeks later I received a phone call asking my salary at my current employer, after that I have not received any contact since. It has been a month and I am sure that they passed on me due to being over qualified as a manager, and to high of a current salary.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you an experienced welder? (This was more important that my manager skills.)   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Praxair (Danbury, CT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    A telephone interview where I was asked how I would handle certain situations which would come up in a day. They wanted to know my current salary and said would be in touch one way or another in the next two weeks. I did not receive any email or phone call after that. I understand that I was not their candidate of choice, but Praxair should show some professionalism and send an email at least, especially after saying they would get back to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Praxair (Danbury, CT).

    Interview

    If I knew what kind of wasted energy and time I would devote to the interview process then I would have declined their invitations. I was contacted by their internal recruiter and the entire process from beginning to end was pointless. I had 2-3 phone interviews before asked to visit their office. At the over 4-hour in-person interview, I spoke with 4 interviewers, completed 2 Excel tests (one of which was provided to me by mistake), and never even received a courtesy rejection phone call or email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Praxair in May 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter called and we had a 45 minute conversation. Then there was an onsite that lasted a little over an hour. After the discussion there was a guided tour with a few Q&A about the process and the group. Five people in the room. Very relaxed atmosphere. Good solid questions but not a firing squad.
