Accounting Manager Interview

Accounting Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Abbott.

Interview Details – The interview went smoothly, but it took 6 hours. I was first contacted via email, then interviewed over the phone and then was invited for a face to face interview to the office. Everyone was very nice, it felt like a friendly conversation rather than an interview. Very professional, good vibe.

Reason for Declining – I received an offer from another company.

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Abbott in January 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, the standard stuff. It took several months to hear back, but Abbott was spinning off Abbvie at the time, so it's understandable. Had a brief phone interview with the manager of the IT intern program. Very casual, great conversation. Received an offer at the end of our talk. Maybe 30 minutes total.

Interview Question – All the usual "tell me about a time when you were faced with a challenge" type behavioral questions.   Answer Question

The interview was scheduled during the end of the internship and was a panel interview with three former ITPDPs and a facilitator.

Senior Analyst Interview

Interviewed at Abbott

Interview Details – Hiring process - Works better if your resume can be submitted through internal contacts. The process starts with a interview by HR recruiter and questions are mainly to understand your personality, background, experience and compatibility. Next step could involve a phone conversation with the hiring manager or it could be a direct face to face interview. Interviews could be with up to four people in the team or across teams. Case interviews are a possibility.
