    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abbott Vascular (Champaign, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied this position on line, and got contacted with a recruiter through email. A virtual interview was done by using an agent named HireVue, and then an real interview was done in the research park near UIUC. This was an onsite interview with three interviewers. Both behavioral and technical questions were asked. It was a one to one interview, not a group one. They are looking for candidates to do an intern somewhere in United State first, and then they will send these interns when they graduate from school to work internationally.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Abbott Vascular in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on a job board and was contacted by a recruiter within a week. Had a 20-minute phone screen with the recruiter. Was passed on to the Regional Manager, who set up a face-to-face interview two days later at a hotel bar in Los Angeles. It was an informal interview, since there was not an available position yet. The RM stated the company was still deciding how to arrange the territories, and was not sure how many positions would be available until the end of the month. The interview lasted about 40 minutes. The following day, I was notified by the recruiter that I would not be considered for a position.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were typical for a sales position, such as "Describe your selling process". The RM was looking for someone who showed passion and enthusiasm.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Abbott Vascular in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process started with a recruiter phone call to set up actual phone interview with the hiring manager. If the call goes well, in person interview is set up and confirmation is sent via email by the recruiter with the hiring manager copied. It was nice that the recruiter included documents that helped understand the company background a bit more and a list of names of who would be on the interview panel. The in person interview was scheduled for 2 hours with two separate interview panels.

    Senior Engineering Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Abbott Vascular.

    Interview

    Typical. Too many generic questions. Thought the process emphasized too much on being able to answer generic questions rather than finding out more about the person being interviewed. It was more like a grilling than "get to know you and your talents". I feel going through a half day series of three or more interviews is more intimidating than helpful to all parties. Business is business, however - it doesn't have to be ultra-impersonal. Having vented, the process is typical of interviewing sessions these days and everyone expects the same treatment. Doesn't mean it can't change for the better though!

    Lengthy and tedious - involves multiple levels and layers of people. The interviewers are given worksheets and suggested questions and directions to drive the interview. Interview process can take half a day if not more - depends on position
