    Interview

    Interviewers were easy-going and friendly. Did not really ask technical questions-- more behavioral. Interviewers put you at ease and it was more like a conversation than an interview.

    Electrification Information Technology (IT) Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ABB (Atlanta, GA) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I applied for this position on June 3rd and had the first round (HR/gatekeeper) interview on June 16th. I finally got to the second round interview on July 9th, a little over a month from the earlier interview, despite the HR person's comment that the hiring manager was looking to move quickly.

    The second round interview was scheduled by a 3rd party, Global Business Solutions. Their e-mail with the meeting details came through just a few hours before the appointed time.

    Prior to the second round interview, I invested copious time learning more about the company, recent changes (e.g. acquisition of the GE Industrial Solutions), and the people. The interview was via Microsoft Teams. The hiring manager was late to join and visibly disinterested in the conversation. He was excited to introduce himself and his history with ABB, but turned more sour when he got to the open position. The description he gave was significantly different than the one published. Before asking any other questions himself, he opened the floor to any other questions I might have. I asked some of the standard questions that should keep the conversation moving, such as "what does success look like in this role?" He was very brief in each response and even dismissed some, "we don't need to talk about that." Eventually I learned that they had an internal candidate for the role. It became abundantly clear that he had no intention of considering me--or any other external candidate--for the position; I thanked him for the time and consideration and ended the call early.

    It is a tough job market and I spent several hours preparing for the ABB interviews. The hiring manager wasted everyone's time by being dishonest. The only upside is that I got a chance to see the hiring manager before joining. It would be a terrible mistake to join ABB if it meant working for this individual.

Second interview was with the plant manager, HR and Quality leader. Based on some of the feedback during the interview, they were
    Looking for someone to just do as they say and not think for themselves to drive improvements.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ABB (Memphis, TN) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Initial digital interview followed by a 30 minute phone interview with the recruiter. I was informed that I would be moving on to the next round at the end of the call. The in-person interview was a panel interview with two HR reps present as well as two managers. The interviewers did great in making sure I was comfortable. Questions revolved more around what characteristics would make me a good fit mixed with behavioral questions.

    Supply Management Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ABB (New York, NY) in October 2019.

    Interview

    They shortlisted me and some of my college friends according to my resume. I got an email as well as a sms regarding that. Then they took an online test on 12 th October,2019. Everyone passed the test. Then I again got an email and sms for interview process. The interview was a video interview. Question were very basic. I cleared that interview and again got an email and a sms that I have cleared the interview. Now I was supposed to go to Bangalore for GAC where students from other colleges also were supposed to come and take part in the final selection round. Total 5 students from my department(EE) were selected in that round. But they didn't send my name in the final list which was sent to our college. I said this to college placement cell and they communicated with them. But the HR said that they cannot pay the traveling allowance for so mqny students. So they sent the name of only 3 students from my department and 2 more from other departments (INSTRUMENTATION AND CHEMICAL ENGG). They didn't sent name of a single student from ETCE department even after clearing the online PI. The day before the final round, I received a mail and a sms mentioning that I have not cleared the PI. now when I see the last 2 sms from them I find something funny. One says that I have cleared PI and another one says that I didn't. My interview was on 14th October. The date of online PI was scheduled on 17th October for one of my friend. He missed one lab experiment to appear for the interview for which he'll not get any marks. But he didn't receive any mail or sms till now. The placement management team of ABB is a bogus one. I didn't see a company like this before.
