    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.

    Pipeline Controller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Praxair (The Woodlands, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very formal and round table setting. It was intimidating at first however I found comfort after the hiring manager introduced the meeting. She even gave a brief safety guide before we started going over emergency plans and exits. I was impressed with that along with the major managers on the interview panel.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Praxair (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    My interview was before a panel of managers from the business unit (although I am told this is a pretty uncommon format). I believe most interviews for this role are now a series of 1:1 interviews with several different managers from the business unit.

    Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Praxair (Tonawanda, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for me as well as other interns was very easy. Our potentially future managers called us over the phone and gave us a 5-10 minute phone interview. Questions that were asked were very basic and simple, regarding our past experience and comfort level with much of the major topic that the specific work you may be doing covers. Very basic phone interview, nothing to worry about. I did however hear about a few interns who had to come in for a face to face interview, not sure how that went but everyone here is so friendly Im sure it wasn't bad at all!

    Senior Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Praxair (Spring, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    PowerPoint presentation in front of panel interviewers. Typical corporate environment with not much energy in the room. When I left the interview I felt I did not want to work for people who did not seem friendly and were so serious. People did not seem excited to work for the company. The interview process was very formal and I felt they did not want to know me as a person, but rather how I performed under pressure. This concerned me. Also, when I asked for feedback I did not get a reply. After working on my presentation for many hours for the interview and presenting in front of six people, I expected a more professional response.
