    Interview

    Incompetent HR person reviewing candidate resumes. Hiring managers should be the only person looking at resumes. HR people have never carried a bag in the field, therefor have no idea what a successful sales person looks like. Those who can’t sell become HR! Also,

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abbott Labs.

    Interview

    I applied online and they got back to me in a few days. I had an informal interview with Talent. Then I scheduled a day to come in and had a 3 round interview. One with Talent, one with the hiring manager and a final interview with the hiring manager's boss. The interview questions were nothing surprising, it looks like they're just making sure you are going to be a fit to work with and that your competent for the job. Got an offer the next day.

    Interview

    I had a 30 minutes phone interview with a Staff Engineer working for Neuromodulation group. The initial 15 mins went smoothly and she basically introduced herself and the nature of work in her group and position requirements. It went downhill when she asked me about statistical analysis and gage methods. I wasn't prepared for those questions in a phone interview and gave vague answers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Waukegan, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewer lacked proper skills and was either looking for a date; wanted to talk about himself for 25 minutes; or knew he did not want me for the job - even though my background was a near perfect match for the position. Seven (7) other recruiting firms have tried to present me for this 'same' position. I told them that I have already been submitted, interviewed; and the interviewer wants to go with other candidates. It's OK, and it was his choice, the questions below are actual - I could not make this up.
