    Senior Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs.

    Interview

    Five-hour interview with 8 different people who came in at 30-minute intervals. It was exhausting and misleading. I thought they were interested and it certainly appeared this way. Did they already have an internal candidate in mind and had to go through the exercise of wasting everyone's time with pretend interviews? I guess I will never know for sure.

    Senior Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Abbott Park, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Interviewed for three different positions within Legal (ended up being hired for the third one). Interviews were all pleasant, pretty much what you'd expect but despite several call backs to meet with numerous people for each opening, I was never notified that they had selected someone else for the first two positions. The entire process took almost 3 months before they made me an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Phoenix, AZ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on the website and then received an invitation to do a video interview. After the video interview I was invited to have a face to face interview with the hiring manager and a couple other people. Before my face to face interview, I had to do an online personality test that took about an hour. It was pretty easy. After a couple weeks, I was asked to come in and interview with the hiring manager again to gage my interest in the position and the company.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I met with Abbott during a career fair. They are very approachable people, but getting an interview with them is super competitive. You really only have a few minutes to sell yourself in the initial stages, and if you don't stand out in some way don't expect a call back.
