    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ABB.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to an on campus interview. The Interviewer was very nice and easy going. Most of the interview he just told me about the company (which I had already researched beforehand) and talked about his career at ABB. He asked me a few questions about my resume--nothing to serious--and I left thinking it had gone really well. About a week later they told me they were going a different direction. I never really understand what they were looking for, because they contacted me about applying like they were interested in me, but then it never went anywhere. I guess that's just how it goes sometimes.

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ABB.

    Interview Details

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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ABB.

    Interview Details

    Four person interview. Talked about my resume and my job plans. Answered questions about the job. They only asked one standard interview question which wasn't what I prepared for but the rest of the interview was more about discussing my resume, skills and the job requirement and if I meet those. The group was nice and friendly but I couldn't help feel really intimidated. After a few minutes I got over it.
