    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Overall, there were delays in communication with HR.
    - The first interview was with the hiring manager and it was a very informal conversation. This was cut short in order to accommodate for an add-hoc interview.
    - Three of the interviewers pulled out papers with generic questions which made it seem very coached and repetitive after a while.
    - HR was not involved in the in-person interviews and unavailable for f/u questions.
    - I received positive feedback from all interviewers on-site & in emails afterwards, yet did not get an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AbbVie (Champaign, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was an on-campus interview. You talked about your research for most of the time and they ask some follow up questions if they are interested. So far I only went through the first round (on-campus) and I don't know when will the second round happen.

    Global Convention Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AbbVie (North Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    They seemed to be in a state of flux and not quite sure what they're looking for. Short interviews with a lot of people. I think allowing a slightly longer interview with less people would be more beneficial. It felt rushed.
