    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AbbVie (North Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Long (3-4 months). Job posted in Jan, applied mid-February, phone interview two weeks later, on-site interview three weeks after that. On-site interview involved pre-interview dinner with hiring manager and two scientists I would be on the same team with. Day-long interview was typical, 45 minute seminar, and 30 minute sessions with other scientists (principals, directors), lunch with junior scientists. Everyone was very polite and enthusiastic. Two weeks after in-person interview, was told that another candidate was chosen, though I was very close. Rating a negative overall experience because of length of interview process.
