    Manufacturing Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jefferson City, MO
    No Offer
    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!

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake Mary, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at ABB (Lake Mary, FL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the former PM manager and his boss the Marketing Director.
    PM was there just of the ride and all questions were handled by the Marketing Director. He was very knowledgeable about ABB products, contract terms, and procedures but had very little knowledge of project management. He was very hostile in his interview approach came across as challenging my credentials and experience even though they had been already verified. All his questions were more in the subject of contract negotiation, and actual systems design than in Project management skills.
