Director Public Affairs Interview

Director Public Affairs
North Chicago, IL

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Abbott Labs in September 2009.

Interview Details – Be prepared for anything. Make sure you know something about the company and that you have at minimum looked at their website. Initially I had several phone interviews the the HR/Talent recruiter - who is actually contracted out. I had to prepare a written document and submit that prior to our phone interview. Then I had the initial phone interview (typical of most). The second phone interview consisted of Q & A. Then I had 1:1 interviews with staff in the department. It lasted about four hours. The last interview was with some senior department people. (It was down to three of us.)

Interview Question – Describe a situation that you define as a crises. What was your role? What was the outcome?   View Answer

Public Affairs Director Interview

Public Affairs Director
Abbott Park, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Abbott Labs in August 2008.

Interview Details – It was a long, tedious, exacting interview process. For every employer I had to find a reference.

Negotiation Details – The company was willing to negotiate on some things but not others. Overall, the compensation and benefits package was good offer but they let me go within a couple of weeks of cashing in on any of what they were offering. I would recommend you negotiate a severance package up front with this company.
