Administrative Assistant Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Abbott Labs (Washington, DC) in January 2011.
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

Overall, the HR team is diligent and thorough. The interviewer must be spot on, not once but numerous times throughout the interview process.

The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Abbott Labs in March 2012.
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.

The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Abbott Labs in July 2011.
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.
