    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abbott Nutrition.

    Interview Details

    In the past getting hired from being a contract was hard, it still is. Takes time to find a permanent position. Once in company it can be a bit difficult in getting interviews and hired into new positions. At times seemed someone already in mind and just the formality for someone else being interviewed.

    Quality Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter first, then got a phone call/phone interview from the company. My qualifications were right on with their job description so I came in for a face-to-face interview a few days later. I was in a conference room sitting across from 4 other managers as I was interviewing for 2 positions. The managers were very professional but also very friendly and the whole interview seemed to flow very naturally. That same day I job shadowed one of the coordinators which was great so I could see first-hand what I would be doing.

    Pediatric Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abbott Nutrition.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening is through a 3rd party talent acquisition program. Afterwards, you'll be reached by the talent management rep. Your hiring manager has some say on whom he would like to interview, so it's best if you know your hiring manager. You'll typically conduct a phone interview with the manager, then a face-to-face interview. Afterwards, the top 2 or 3 will interview with the regional sales director. This interview is typically a courtesy interview, but the management teams typically allow the district manager to make the final decision since its the DM that will have to work/ mentor the representative.

    Interview Questions
    • Using your sales/pharma experience and translate it to nutrition hospital sales. This position may look like pharma, but many pharma reps struggle the first year because the expectations are significantly higher.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    If you're requesting a salary that's higher than their typical initial offer, you will need to provide a pay stub showing you were earning an equivalent in your current job.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Abbott Nutrition in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a 30-45 minute phone screen with an HR person. I applied on line and the HR person reached out to me the very next day. The phone screen was short and involved me walking through my resume and answering a few behaviorial questions. It was fairly easy and the HR person was good as she provided feedback at the end.

    The interview process involves the HR person taking a bunch of notes on your responses to questions, sending it to the hiring manager and the hiring manager decides, based on the written notes, if they want to talk to you or not. The HR manager was very prompt about getting back to me to let me know that I didn't get a second interview because the hiring manager said that my background doesn't fit their criteria. I appreciated the personal and quick response. Most HR people aren't like that.

    What I didn't like about this interview experience was that I felt like things were done backwards. The hiring manager should have seen my resume first before the phone screen was done - not the other way around.

    Probably one of the best HR persons I've dealt with due to promptness and willingness to share information. Learned a bit about the company in my brief conversation and it sounds like a great company to work for had I been given the opportunity.
