    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airgas (Odessa, TX) in June 2018.


    Very laid back. Questions were straight forward. Atmosphere wasn't rushed or tense at all. Interviewer was affable. I applied online and received a phone call the same day. I interviewed the next day, and filled out paperwork. The vetting process was lengthy. Back ground check took a month.
