    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Praxair (Pittsburg, CA).

    Interview

    Received a phone call from the Talent Acquisition Member of Praxair regarding a position I applied to about a few weeks back. Scheduled an in-person interview. I had gone to the plant in Pittsburg, CA and the first few people I had interacted with seemed rude with no professional behavior. However, I let that pass by. When I got inside the isolated office, I had to wait 20+ minutes for the interviewers only because they were too busy have cake for someone's retirement party. Talk about unprofessionalism and lack of respect for one's time. I was going to walk away within the next 5 minutes when the interviewers had called me in. The interview was OK in the sense that I was told to explain my interest, my background in more detail and then was given a brief tour of the facility. A third person later joined the interview and asked me chemistry related questions which I got right. I was told that I made the short list and that they get back to me 2 weeks later. Well, after writing thank you e-mails that I got no response from (no problem IMHO), I waited 3 weeks until I finally tried to get back in touch with the Praxair Talent Acquisition Member and even re-wrote e-mails to the managers expressing my interest. I was told by the Talent Acquisition personnel that the position was "on hold" and that they won't be filling this position. Talk about an extremely poor interview process.
