Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Abbott Labs (Washington, DC) in January 2011.

Interview

Interview was rushed; interviewer felt unsure of herself; interviewer was not well prepared; overall it was not a positive experience; the team did not seem to gel well; interview was rushed and that is all that I have to add

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Abbott Labs in April 2010.

    Interview

    Overall, the HR team is diligent and thorough. The interviewer must be spot on, not once but numerous times throughout the interview process.
    1. Initial contact: Telephone interview
    2. Interview: with HR rep alone
    3. Interview: Depending on the schedules of the directors/asst. directors, you may have individual or group interviews consisting of (3-4). Each department has their preference.
    If it's an individual interview, each one will be scheduled for 45 min. You will go from one interview to the next. If it's a group interview, it's scheduled for 45-60 minutes.
    4. A call back for the job offer (in my case-took almost a week)

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abbott Labs in March 2012.

    Interview

    I recieved a call one week after application was submitted. I went in for an interview 1st with direct manager, then group panel, finally with another manager. Wasn't so bad except I had my first at 8am then the other interviews scheduled for later in the day around 230pm. So I had most of the day spent there, oh did I mention this location is 20mils or so away from home?They asked typical questions. Alot of behavior. I came back in for a second interview the next day to see one person. Took them a VERY long time to get back to me by phone(approx 1mth later) in which I was not offered the job.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abbott Labs in July 2011.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with someone from the corporate office. First phone call was to schedule a phone interview. Second interview was the actual interview. The interview lasted 15-20 minutes. Since the person conducting the interview was from corporate they didn't know any details about the position. It was very formal and serious. It took a long time for them to get back to me.
