    Technical Sales Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Abbott.

    Interview

    Pretty routine interview process, introduce yourself and ask why the position interests you. The hardest part was trying to get a feel for the Interviewers; they were very monotone and uninterested and seemed to already have a decision before the interview started.

    Clinical Data Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Abbott (Sylmar, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through recruiter. First round of my interview was done by phone by a hiring manager, who was really nice. It took about 20 minutes. Then, I was invited to the on-site interview which was 3 hours (!) long and was very exhausting. I met 6 individuals, spent 30 minutes with each of them at 1-on-1 meetings. They were asking absolutely same questions, however, last two persons made the accent on behavior questions which i hate.
    The temperature in the conference room where the interview was held was very hot and there was no drinking water at the facility per the receptionist. I had severe headache by the end of the 2nd hour. Even though I haven't received a job offer, the overall experience was terrible and left bad aftertaste.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott (Austin, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It started with a video interview, then phone interview then in-person interview. I really enjoyed my interaction with all the people I was in contact with during this interview process with Abbott. It seems like a fantastic company, with fantastic compensation, culture, opportunity, and benefits. Everyone I have spoken with who works for or has worked Abbott really loves it.

    ITPDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Notre Dame, IN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Abbott (Notre Dame, IN) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There was a very casual pre-interview dinner the night before with the interviewers and graduates of the intern program or members of the PDP program. The day of the interviews involves two back-to-back 30 minute interviews. During these, you are asked to tell a little about yourself and then the interviewer asks several situational questions. Being able to tie these situations to a professional, scholastic, or extra-curricular experience is essential.
