    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Praxair (Tonawanda, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone interview. About 2 weeks later I was invited to come in for a panel interview. I was asked to prepare a 15-20 minute presentation summarizing my résumé and why I wanted the job. They told me they'd have a decision within a week. More than 3 weeks later my contact emails me on a Sunday asking me to call the next day (weird...why not just call me?) I call, no answer. Follow up with an email, and I get excuses that they're too busy. Two weeks later, still haven't heard a word. If this is any indication of how the company runs, I don't want to work there.
