    I worked at Praxair full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Praxair expects all employees to work safely and behave ethically. You will be provided with proper training and equipment to get the job done. You will be expected to do the job correctly every time. If you buy-in to the culture then they will take very good care of you.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime (55-65 hours per week). Nights/weekends for the first few years.

    Advice to Management

    Better work life balance for bulk drivers. Living wage without overtime will make for happier drivers!

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Praxair.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview during a career fair. got selected for onsite interview at the technology center in Tonawanda. Lasted half-day from 8 AM to 12 PM. Back to back interviews that were a mix of behavioral and technical interviews. Interviewers came in pairs, asked similar type of questions ( so be consistent with your answers because they discuss them later on!) . Some were very friendly, others more serious
