    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ABB in August 2013.

    Interview

    Changed position inside company, not new employee. Easy and superficial HR interview. Totally inflexible manager during the interview (no additional bonuses, everybody gets the same slice, no individual rewards for oustanding performance). Quick transition.

    Negotiation

    Me: OK this is the industry standard for the salaries... Company: yes, but this is for the big cities; here we can offer only... 60-max 70% of that. And that because you have experience... Me: OK, I hear you. How about other things? Company car, extra-holiday, performance-based bonuses, free tickets to the candy shop, daily lollipop on my desk on behalf of the company, anything at all...? Company: uhm... well, if you put it like that... no. Sorry, there is nothing we can offer you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ABB (Brno (Czech Republic)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was invited to a single interview where I was interviewed by two project managers. Part of the interview was conducted in Czech whilst the other part in English. Topics were very general at first, then slightly technically oriented. Atmosphere was very relaxed and slightly informal, the interview happened in a friendly spirit in a conference room of the department and took about 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a technical question to define and describe a switchgear unit produced by the company, which I could not identify. More detailed study of the factories product prior to the interview would be helpful on this specific case.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ABB (Bangalore (India)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    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
