    Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ABB.

    Interview

    Interview process was positive, there were some signs I may have miss read. As for the hiring process, mine and others have been riddled with slow(1-2 month) processing of starting you as a new employee. Meaning basic things you need to do your job won't be completed so you'll be walking on egg shells for a while. Then there's the matter of reimbursement. It is possible you may have a good experience with ABB however, I had a horror story and others have too. Things not being moved, things damaged, not being reimbursed, several month wait for payback, high expenses un accounted for.

    Negotiation

    I negotiated, they accepted, then they never followed through and reverted back to the original offer.
