    Research Scientist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ABB (Raleigh, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I, first, met ABB at a career fair where they told me to apply online. About four months later, I received an email for video on-demand interview where the questions are presented and I would record my answers on video at my convenience. Almost two weeks later, I received a phone call for on-site interview. That was when I realized the website is a fake representation of the company. The on-site interview included a presentation (45 minute presentation, 15 minute questions). They kept interrupting me during my talk. I don't have problems with it, but I found it rude. One person in audience acted like a know-it-all which I thought was testing my reaction to being intimidated. Next stop was the VP who could not be more discouraging when he said the company almost bankrupted few years back and is still on the way to get back on track. He didn't have an idea about the company's five year plan and thought technology was a hype. The rest of the interview team made me feel comfortable, but my overall feeling about the company degraded in the first two hours of the interview. Questions from the team were mostly about my background and some few behavioral questions. The moment I was done, I knew it didn't feel right. Though the hiring manager said they'd let me know in two weeks, they never responded to any of my thank you/follow up emails until I made a phone call and left a message. All in all, disappointing and unreal especially if you get your background from their shiny website!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ABB in May 2017.

    Interview

    Throughout recruitment process, felt like a number. wasn't really recruited at all, even though they were trying to recruit me away from my current employer. In the end, I withdrew my candidacy for the position. If their recruitment process is anything like their workplace, I'll pass. Feel like I dodged a bullet.

    Account Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ABB in February 2017.

    Interview

    By phone...spoke with an HR Rep, the Hiring Manager and the same HR Rep again. I was told that I would come in for a day of interviews at the region office and would be hearing from someone that would set up the travel and logistics. I never heard from anyone again. Very unprofessional. If ABB employees are treated with the same lack of professional courtesy, I'm glad they did not contact me.

    the hiring manager asked about the research experience and discussed about the details of the projects. The requirement for the internship is not as high as the full time internship. The interview is face to face and only once.
