    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AbbVie (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Was flown in the night before. It was a half day interview starting at 8 and wrapping up at 12:30. The team was EXTREMELY friendly. I started talking to them and knew I would have loved working with them. They were extremely insightful and intelligent, and at the same time, kind and easy to talk to. At the end of the day, it felt like a stimulating discussion on my field rather than an interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • My interest in the role, why I was a fit. How I would address some of the business challenges faced by the company?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AbbVie (Chicago, IL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I got called for a phone interview that was set up by a third party contracting agency. The team members were both very friendly, and surprisingly casual. It was a little more than 30 minutes in duration, but a lot of the talk was focused on my interests, passions, and where I want to take my career. Not particularly challenging, but definitely required some thought.
