I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Airgas (Independence, OH) in September 2017.
Interviewed in late 2017. Started with a phone interview that took about 30 mins. It is your pretty run of the mill phone interview, very general questions about my background and then some more specific questions related to the job. About two weeks later had an in person interview met with the director and 4 supervisors separately, they asked a lot more about my background and made a point to be open and honest about the nature of the job. They were all very friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. The inperson interview took about 3 hours but it wasn’t too grueling, the conversation was fairly informal.
After that I didn’t hear anything for several weeks, and was eventually called in to a second in person interview. This one was real short and very informal, they said they just wanted to touch base with me again and see if I was still interested. They didn’t ask any questions it was more of an informal conversation. I received a job offer a week later.
