    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Junior SAP Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I received a message through LinkedIn from a direct recruiter of ABB. I responded and gave him my phone number where he called me. Later that same day after speaking he asked if He could arrange a phone interview with the hiring manager, which I agreed to. The communication flow between the recruiter and I was amazing, he was very attentive. The hiring manager ended up contacting me while I was on vacation but was very nice about it and was very apologetic not knowing I was in Las Vegas having fun! Anyways, so as the phone conversation went on, I was originally being interviewed for a Senior position but during the call with the hiring manager, we both agreed that I was more at a junior level and that he is requesting internally to have this position open for employment. I waited about 2 weeks and received a call from the recruiter again asking me to apply to the newly opened junior position which I did... Things went so smoothly from that point on. Kudos to the recruiting team! I was contacted by the account manager who basically made my face to face interview schedule go even smoother. I did meet with the manager I spoke with on the phone. Very good interview. Because his manager was not available at that time I met with the HR manager as well. That same day I was given a call after that interview that they would like me to come in and meet the main supervisor for that group as soon as possible. I did go back in a couple of days later and met with the supervisor and another business partner that I would be working with directly if given this position. That interview also went very well. I was very pleased with the entirety of this process and was very welcomed. However a week had passed and I heard nothing... I contacted the HR account manager and was very sincere and apologetic for the delay... I waited another 2 weeks and finally heard from them that they moved on with another candidate. Al though I was sad about the news, the account manager as well as the recruiter gave me very positive feedback and said that they will ensure I am first pick for another position should it open up and if I am still interested and available. They asked that I keep in contact with them through LinkedIn and they would check in with me to see what my employment status is ... What a wonderful group of people and very precise and dedicated. This is a company I would certainly be honored to work for. Kudos to all that I came in contact with here at ABB.

    Manufacturing Programmer Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ABB (Jefferson City, MO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First they did a phone screening interview during which I interviewed with one of their recruiters for about 45 mins. Then I did a second interview on the phone with the IT manager for almost an hour. He asked general questions, not too technical. I was then invited for an in-person interview. I interviewed with 4 groups of two people. The interview went took about 4 hours! It was very technical. They were asking questions related to their local systems as if I already used their systems on a day-to-day basis. After all that, I waited almost 3 weeks and reached out to them. They said they were "leaning towards another candidate". After another maybe two weeks I got an email saying they withdrew the position and did not hire anyone. It was a huge waste of my time!
