    Diabetes Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Abbott Diabetes Care.

    Interview

    Initial communication was via email to set up a time for a phone screening. The phone screening was performed by HR to determine my qualifications for the position and to see if I had the requirements. Next was a phone contact with the district manager as a touch point and to set up a face to face interview. I made it past that round of interviews and was scheduled to meet with the Director of Sales as one of the final candidates. Both interviews were focused around sales execution and territory management.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Abbott Diabetes Care (Fremont, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to a recruiter in Florida for this position, which is called Fountain Group. Fountain Group was hired by Abbott's onsite agency, Manpower. Fountain Group initially called to set up the interview with one of the senior product managers at Abbott, for an initial phone screen. A day or so later, I was contacted by my agency again for an in-person interview either that day or the next. However, I was in other meetings at the time of the message, and was essentially stalked by both my recruiter and the onsite Manpower recruiter until I called them back. I think I had something like 9 missed called between the two of them in one afternoon. I called back, and said that I was pretty busy that day and the next, but they insisted that these were my only opportunities to have the 2 hour interview. So, I squeezed it into my schedule and interviewed on a Thursday, with a job offer in hand by Friday. The interview consisted of 4 one-on-one interviews with different members of the team. One had me look at product packaging to identify differences between the two (to test my branding knowledge), one asked a lot of "what would you do if..." questions, and the other two asked pretty standard questions about my experience.

    Negotiation

    I would advise looking for other job postings. The one I replied to offered me $17-19/hour. Then, I saw another posting offering up to $23/hour for this same position. I asked about it and they offered me $22.30/hour.
