    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abbott Labs in June 2015.

    Interview

    From initial application to receiving an invitation from the HR to setup a phone screen took about 3 weeks. After the phone screen, it took a few days to hear from the HR again for setting up an in-person. Then everything just happened in the speed of light. I'd say from the submission to receiving an offer took exactly a month.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abbott Labs (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A senior hiring manager from Abbott Labs reached out to me after one of her recruiters found me on LinkedIn. I was initially really excited to be considered for this position and was looking forward to progressing through the stages to explore mutual fit. The following week she scheduled and cancelled three second-stage phone interviews with me - the first one was cancelled with a couple of minutes' notice, the second she completely missed with no heads-up at all, and responded a couple of hours later with an apology and asked to reschedule. The third time she gave me exactly the two hours' notice I requested for future cancellations, and after I responded, she never followed up with me again. This was by far the worst recruitment/interview set-up I've ever had.
