    I have been working at Praxair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very experienced and professional sales force.,

    Cons

    Large organization that moves slowly at times. Compensation isn't the same from one sales rep to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Commission should be offered to sales reps willing to produce under that scenario.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Praxair (Magna, UT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty long process between application and interview. Interview was conducted on-site which included general interview questions as well as some in depth fluid mechanics and machinery questions. Interviewers were operational superintendent and the plant manager. The interview was formal, but not entirely strict. The interview concluded with a tour of the plant by an operator.
