Depending on the position on offer ABB does require a background check
Réponse du - Director GCC Service Suite (Ancien employé) - Richmond, BC
No back ground check
Réponse du - Data entry/planner (Ancien employé) - Dorval, QC
Yes, yes and more yesses.....ABB will vet you to the max. I had to PHOTOCOPY my academic and professional diplomas, transcripts and licenses and send them to HR. Then, they called every one of them to verify. This after over 30 years of working at high levels for Tier One companies. They do criminal and credit checks on you because you are given a no-limit Corporate American Express Card. So no Get-Out-of-Jail-Free cards at ABB.
