Financial Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Abbott Park, IL) in October 2012.

Interview

I had a phone interview and an in person interview. The phone interview was with the manager and the questions were pretty standard. We went over my resume and discussed how my qualifications/experience matched the position. About two weeks later, I was brought into the office for a telepresence interview with the person I spoke to for the phone interview as well as his manager. They talked a lot about the background of the division and the position description. The questions to me were similar to my phone interview--it seemed like the interview was mostly for the benefit of the manager's manager. Later that day, the manager called and offered me the job. I accepted.

Interview Questions

  • The questions were all pretty typical. One question was about how I would communicate with members of the IT department. This was difficult only because I was confused as to how this would be any different than communicating with anyone else.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Abbott Park, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I originally interviewed in January 2012 and was told I was their top candidate. However, after 7 weeks the position was unfortunatelly cancelled. I decided to keep in touch with the recruiter and I was contacted again in May 2012 for a second interview for another position. I interviewed and I was offered the position. First interview in Jan was with 4 managers and the second interview was with 3 managers. 1 on 1 discussions for about an hour each. Managers were super friendly and very comforting. It was a nice, casual interview. No behavioral questions, no accounting/finance questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Clonmel (Ireland)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. Had a screening call with HR for about 10 minutes followed 2 weeks later by more in-depth call with Abbott recruiter, about 30 minutes long.
    HR subsequently emailed interview confirmation, two interviews back to back with one person in each interview. He said I would have feedback if not a decision by end of same week.

    On the day it ended up being 3 interviews back to back with 4 people in total. The interviews were conversational rather than formal. However they did not ask many probing questions or ask for many examples so I got the feeling they had already picked a successful candidate before meeting me.

    Despite assurances of hearing feedback / decision by end of same week, it was in fact 3 full weeks later before they sent a generic email confirming that my application was unsuccessful. I replied seeking specific feedback but they did not respond. Found this disappointing after making a big effort for the interview, plus being ambushed on the day by extra interviews and extra people. Unprofessional on Abbott's part.
    Couple of generic points; the office looked nice. They emphasised Abbott's "meeting-heavy" culture.
