Intern Interview

Intern
Waukegan, IL

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abbott Labs in April 2010.

Interview Details – Very thorough followup by the HR- from calling to emailing, the recruiter contacts you about every detail, which is really great in my opinion. From reserving the flight to details of the orientation, Abbott HR contacts you weeks in advance of the start date! They offer paid stay in Marriott courtyard during the 3-month internship, and grad students can get their own studio there. Many perks to being an intern at abbott.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Abbott Labs in October 2009.

Interview Details – I had one interview, which was a 1:1 with a friendly Abbott vascular hiring manager. After asking me 2 simple questions, he asked me whether or not I would be available to come back for a second interview later that day, which I said yes to. Apparently the second interview confirmed that I got the job and was simply an interview planning out logistics about where I would like to be placed and so on.

Interview Question – Tell me about your past two internships   Answer Question
