Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Abbott Labs in April 2010.

Interview Details – 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)

Interview Question – All of the questions were common, however they stress situational questions.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

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

Interview Details – 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.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

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

Interview Details – 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.
