    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AbbVie in December 2018.

    Interview

    2 interviews, first was talking through how I would approach certain data analysis questions. Second was a lot more relaxed and it was more informational telling me about myself and what they're looking for. There weren't as many behavioral questions as I had expected

    Patient Care Strategy Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AbbVie (North Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interview was standard: Background, AbbVie culture norms related star response questions.
    Interview was 30 to 45 mins with the Hiring Manager and the peers and other members.
    I didn't receive any updates after 3.5 weeks of the interview even after following up with HR and HR saying that I will get an update. I logged in to the candidate application system and the status was updated as 'No longer under consideration'.
    When a candidate spends almost a day to interview, they deserve a phone call or at least a note telling them about it.

    Actually, this experience makes me happy that I didn't get selected as would have ended up working for such a culture ! Not a good experience. A lot shows of the company's culture and how they would treat their people based on how HR behaves with you whether you made it or didn't make it. Won't be applying at this company anymore.

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews. Would normally we one in-person on-campus interview and then a panel interview at their office, but this was changed due to COVID-19. I had one phone interview with a current QC Lab Technician and then another with a supervisor.

    Applied online and had interview. Casual interview and they asked fair questions about past experience, skills that I had, and future aspirations. Made the interview feel two-sided which was really nice because it was easy to ask questions back.

    Principal Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AbbVie.

    Interview

    Their interview process seems pretty messed up. They seem to have no respect for the candidate's time. The recruiter set up a time for the initial phone screen but never called. I emailed the recruiter 15 mins. after the scheduled time went by to see if we are still on schedule for a call. The guy NEVER apologized and very casually emailed back that he'd call in the next hour. Who does that?? Why do they think that the candidate is at their disposal? I've never had this level of unprofessional conduct displayed by a recruiter to me in my 18 yrs. career anywhere.

    Next, the phone screen went by fine and the guy mentioned that he'll set up a follow-up call with the hiring manager the following week. Guess what? I never heard back from that person either. It's been almost 2 months (emailed the recruiter once in between with no response), and these people still seem to hold on to my candidacy.

    Go figure. These people have no courtesy or professionalism. I can already get a pretty great impression of their work culture. I think it is best to stay away from this Pharma company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AbbVie (Buffalo Grove, IL) in February 2020.

    Interview

    HR was very friendly and helpful in connecting with HM.

    HM had a phone interview that was a rundown of the resume.

    Final interviews were 5 back to back interviews asking technical and analytical questions based on your resume and what the job needs.

    It is also a good opportunity to learn more about the team and ask questions.
