What are the best and worst things about your job?

The best thing about my current role is that it involves a variety of interesting tasks, and changes day-to-day. Sometimes it is practical, operating machines, changing components, running experiments, visiting contractors workshops; sometimes more computer based, analysing data, modifying drawings, preparing instruction manuals. There is enough to keep it feeling fresh and interesting, while still allowing enough time to build competence.

Application Advice:

Answer the situational questions honestly. Air Products is all about diversity of opinion and having people who think about things in a different way. They want a range of perspectives and experiences, it enriches the company.

Interview Advice:

During the technical interview, if you don't know the answer to something tell them, ask them to explain some concepts, and then try to tie it in with your own understanding. It's much better to admit you aren't sure and work through the problem with them to understand, than waffling nonsense or sitting there in silence!

Application Advice:

Try to determine, how your acquired skills will best fit within the framework of this organisation. Demonstrate that you have done research on various segments and highlight interest areas.

Interview Advice:

Technical interview based on fluid, thermodynamics and strength of materials is key to the assessment day. Group tasks are equally important and focus is played on good and clear communication skills and on delivering the result with good team spirit.

Application Advice:

Apply early, and pay attention to the company competencies from the website.

Interview Advice:

The video interview is a mixture of soft skill questions first followed by some more technical ones to finish. For those try to show your thought process as much as possible and try to keep some breadth in the factors you consider. The interview during the assessment centre begins with a presentation on a past project you've worked on, but it's good to draw out links with AP from this if you can. The technical questions that follow are on a range of topics, so my advice there would be to be familiar with what AP does and the areas of your course that might be most relevant.

Application Advice:

Languages help a lot, especially Dutch, French, Spanish, or German. Any experience involving teamwork is important. Show off your problem solving and communication skills.

Interview Advice:

Show confidence but not arrogance. Failure is alright as long as you can show that you learned from the experience and grew from it. Think out loud to make sure they know what's going through your head as that's what they're interested in.

Look up what the company does and how it does it! Air Products does mostly cryogenic separation so make sure you know something about how it's done and how it works.

In the team activity in the assessment centre, show initiative. Propose ideas and debate other people's with them. Be involved and don't wait around for other people to do the activity for you.

High Pressure Equipment Engineer, European Industrial Gas Technical Support at Air Products
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you review the company in as much detail as you can from the website and other sources. Pay particular attention to company values, it can be really helpful if you can factor in examples where you've shown them into your application.

It's also very important to talk to people during the assessment centre, and genuinely try to get a sense of what they do and what the people you'll be working with are like. The grads that will be around during the day really aren't assessing you in any formal capacity (I promise!) and everyone's friendly, so feel free to have chats about the kinds of projects they're working on and so forth. If nothing else it'll help you relax, and if any of the assessors do notice you being less nervous than the others it can only be a good thing during their final decision meeting.

Interview Advice:

The video interview is a tricky format to get right, so make sure to use the practice button to do a couple of sample questions to get camera position/lighting etc sorted. Don't worry too much about the background - make sure it's clean, tidy and professional, and without anybody else in it, but other than that most things should be fine. It's much more important to take it when you're relaxed and not too stressed, that kind of stuff comes across badly. I remember there being a number of soft-skill questions and then a couple of technical ones at the end. Nothing too detailed is required, they mostly want to know how you would go through a problem, so talk them through the process you would follow and any key decisions you might have to make. Again, subtly showing you're considering competencies would be a good thing - I did it completely by accident, and I think it showed me in good stead!

The face to face interview during the assessment centre required you to prepare a presentation, so make sure to choose something you've worked on that you're genuinely interested in and try to tie it to AP in some way. There's also a fairly lengthy technical component, but the assessors are pretty good at talking you around places where you get stuck so don't get too hung up on individual errors or bits you don't know - nobody gets it perfectly, that's sort of the point.

Interview Advice:

Interviews are by video interview - make sure to smile. I've heard a lot of candidates do not appear as passionate during the video interview. The assessment centre: be friendly and well organised/calculating in your approach to tasks.

Application Advice:

Show that you know about the company's history, what they do and where they plan to go. Be sure to know the company's main aims. Safety is a big aspect of Air Product's core beliefs, therefore try to give examples of where you have considered safety in engineering as well as day to day life.

Interview Advice:

Be sure to know the fundamentals of refrigeration. Learn about how cryogenic fluids behave and what safety measures are put in place to avoid failures. Show confidence, usually the simple answer is the correct one. Think logically towards business related questions be sure to demonstrate that you understand that Air Products is a business and therefore it needs to make profit. Make sure that you are heard in the assessment centre but also show that you are willing to listen and consider other options.

Application Advice:

All the roles that I have been in (3 so far) required a great deal of working flexibility. There are certainly office type jobs within air products but the best ones require you to be content with being on the road and packed up with very short notice.
This is not to be viewed negatively in my opinion as it helps you, learning to deal with the challenges of adapting quickly whilst planning the job in unpredictable conditions.

Interview Advice:

There is a lot of pressure when undertaking an interview and I remember my own very well. But try to relax. It is harder done than said but to be your best over a couple of hours is much simpler when you are not constantly worrying about the end result. Be yourself.

Application Advice:

Be honest and make sure you present yourself in the best possible way. Application form should be easy to read and only present the key aspects of your experience and education. You will get your chance to talk and expand on the topics at the later stage, while application must only get the company interested in you.

Interview Advice:

Be social and do not give up at any stage. The way you react to your mistakes often is much more important than the actual mistakes. Also, make sure you do not repeat yourself or talk too long on the same topic - you only get a certain time, and you surely want to cover as much as possible of your knowledge and experience!

EDP, S&OP at Air Products

Application Advice:

Your CV should be to-the-point and relevant; a skills-based CV spanning two sides of A4 would be most appropriate. You should touch upon personal compentencies, but these will be discussed in more detail at the interview stage.

Given the option, a covering letter should be submitted in conjunction with the CV. It is important to clearly set out who you are, your background, your interests in the company and industry as a whole, why you think your compentencies are in strong alignment with those required at the company, and also give a brief outline of your experiences and achievements.

Interview Advice:

Think hard about experiences you've had where you've had to demonstrate teamwork.. as well as positive leadership. Try to sell yourself as someone who is responsible and keen to take on challenges. Also, be honest and up-front about areas in which you think you could improve upon, but show your willingness and commitment to improving yourself.

Specific advice would be to research thoroughly what it is the company does; show that you're enthusiastic and that you have the knowledge and ability to bring something to the company. Brush-up on your technical knowledge as well!

Application Advice:

Application for the graduate role was quite easy, just a CV and covering letter. Just ensure you make it clear that you have similar interests and skills relevant to the company.

Interview Advice:

My interview went very well; it consisted of an assessment day where I had to present my PhD work to a number of managers, personal interview (related to your cv), technical interview and a group activity at the end. Technical interview consisted of back to basic type problems. Technical interview and group activity were more about the way you approach things, rather than the result.

Best:

It has a well established Grad Scheme, so there are people in Senior positions now that started where I am. It's encouraging to have these people be your mentors and sponsors, as it gives you something to aspire too. I also think there's always something new on the horizon in terms of technology and development - new acquisitions and new investment, which is always encouraging

Worst:

I feel that for a while, Air Products wasn't really taking care of a lot of its employees the way it used to - in that there was a bit of a lack of clarity and trust when introducing certain business decisions. I think it is getting better for sure, but it still has a little way to go.
