- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day – interviewed at ABB (Raleigh, NC) in November 2014.
It was really short interview, which lasted 20 minutes. They needed people at that time and it's easy task. I was referred by a professor and only gone through one interview in total.

Negotiation was easy in that I had supporting reasons for my requests.
- Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at ABB (Raleigh, NC) in January 2009.
Mostly informal. The drawings I had to review were very basic and I was surprised that no one had any actual construction (real world ) experience. It is not difficult to have a favorable interview when your field knowledge trumps office knowledge. The people were very pleasant, but not very knowledgeable in design processes, project planning or execution. It was most surprising that no one had any field construction experience - nor are they interested in gaining this experience, even going so far to state it is not necessary. They are too comfortable with the office, climate controlled environment. For someone with both design and construction experience the interview process is going to be easy.
- What is wrong with this drawing? 1 Answer
To a degree, at the time, I did not realize how low paid I was in my current position. That has since been corrected (based on a 40 hour week). Overall, I am still at a loss, since my last job we were paid by the hour (straight time). As far as salary and compensation - everything is negotiable. The goal is to get the company to want you, BEFORE any compensation is discussed.
