Interview Details – Phone interview first with management and HR. Then dinner with HR and Management for formal interview (good dinner and bottle of wine!), Questions were technical, experience base, critical thinking, and customer service oriented questions.

Felt like I was just floating around but then I settled in to it quit quickly.

Interview Details – My experience with ABI was quite dissappointing. I was applying for a appliccations chemist position dealing with MS on small molecules (environmental, pharma, etc...). They found very interesting my profile and after some weeks they paid me a plane to go to Madrid to do the interview. When I was there they thought my profile was better for sales and offered me a position on Genomics Sales which is not my background.
