    SCADA Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kraków (Poland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ABB (Kraków (Poland)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on-line through their website. I suggest you create an account there and upload your CV rather than le bunch of recruitment agencies apply instead of you.
    I was interviewed at Krakow at Starowislna Street.
    They said they are expanding there and there are around 150+ open positions available, in few offices in Krakow.
    I was asked about my past experience, projects, tools I have used and some IT / Linux questions. My background and experience were matching and I was applying for a Senior/Consultancy position (+5 years).
    Everything went OK. Since in Poland such a companies will not propose the salary range I was asked about one. I think I have told them far less then you would expect for the similar position in countries like the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, etc.
    They told me I will be likely hired and will start from beginning of December 2017. I just have to await to hear from them for further details.
    After that I never got any info from them.
    After around one month I have logged-into my candidate profile on their website only to see that status of my application was "Application Unsuccessful".
    Quite disappointing as for the big and known company like this. I will rather never apply there again.
    It may be good for graduates without experience and know-how in engineering disciplines, or people which are applying for their first professional job, but for professionals like myself, with international experience, you will not be recognized and valued.
