    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ABB (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was straight forward and on expected lines. I was wondering why the questions were standard. The interviewer first asked to introduce myself and describe my experience in the sales and marketing field. Only after that did the interview about specific ABB products proceed. Mostly they asked about drives and PLC marketing based questions.
