    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ABB Group.

    Interview Details

    I participated in the selection process and was selected among the three finalists, but the work got someone already working in this company in Chile for the company policies.
    The process is a little slow. The meeting was useful for them to know me, however, the chances I had were low, as someone who already worked at the company had more possibilities.
