    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Abbott (Saint Paul, MN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews going up the management chain before they scheduled an on-site interview day. The on-site interview included a 30-minute presentation about my doctoral dissertation with additional time for questions as well a series of face-to-face and phone interviews. The process was fairly quick and the interviewers were more interested in my skills than any specific domain knowledge.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Abbott (Abbott Park, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Online interview via a webcam. Took me about 40 min. Seven questions, some video, some essay. Ask about your DMV record, your compensation requirements, if you'd be willing to travel, etc. Also ask you to give a difficult situation you've been in and how you overcame it. Asks about any certifications you have and about your experience in the field. Interview was awkward as you are just talking to a camera but at least you can do it whenever is convenient for you. You have 3 days to complete the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Abbott in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, the standard stuff. It took several months to hear back, but Abbott was spinning off Abbvie at the time, so it's understandable. Had a brief phone interview with the manager of the IT intern program. Very casual, great conversation. Received an offer at the end of our talk. Maybe 30 minutes total.
