Engineering Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Västerås, Värmland (Sweden)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at ABB Group in February 2010.

Interview Details – I applied this position on their website. About two weeks later the human resource contacted me by email to arrange a phone interview. The interviewer was a senior engineer who was very nice. It lasted about 30 minutes, and basically reviewed my resume. There was not too many technical questions. He asked mainly my education background and project experience over the last few years.

Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bangalore (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at ABB Group in October 2009.

Interview Details – I had a interview with a senior manager with a lot of questions on Project management aspect. The interview also went into the understanding of the Industrial Automation domain and technical portions for making sure that the person knows the thing he leads.

I am not sure if they follow the same process for all interviews but I got a call and was asked to be available next day and then I had a 45 minute interview. Nothing more. Haven't yet reached the next stage so can't say much
