Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ABB (Mount Pleasant, PA).

    Interview

    Interview was standard, all the questions were the usual kind and nothing off the wall or out of the ordinary. But, after my in-person interview, which took a full afternoon, travel time, all the usual preparation, etc. I was informed a few weeks later that they promoted an internal candidate. So it turned out to be a complete waste of my time. I didn't even have experience in ABB's industry, and I'm sure I was no match for the internal employee. So I think it is irresponsible of ABB to knowingly waste my day. If anybody from HR is reading this, I hope they resolve to stop wasting candidates' time when they know full well that they'll promote an internal employee.

    • "Tell me about a time when you worked on a team that included members from several departments, and you actively resolved a dispute or negotiation." That isn't word for word, but the question followed those lines.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ABB (Västerås, Värmland (Sweden)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    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.
