    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Columbus, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I got asked to interview at Abbott. They paid for my flight to their headquarters in Ohio, my hotel, and food. My flight was paid for upfront but my hotel and food expenses had to be submitted. It took them 4 months to refund me. The facility was nice and the people who interviewed me were nice. I did not get the job because I did not have enough experience which they knew from my resume so I'm not sure why they had me go through the process at all.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Dallas, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Arrived from airport. Gave a 30-40 minute talk about my research as a graduate student. Met with hiring manager / director. Met with other managers in the group individually for ~ 30 min each. Altogether, about 5 - 6 people. Only the first meeting with the group director really felt like an interview. It was back and forth questioning asking. Some small talk, but mostly trying to get a feel for who I was. The rest of the interviewers were more about small talk.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Abbott Labs (Columbus, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Career Fair. One Attempt. Friendly and nice. Seemed that the interviewers were not so much as interested in who the person is but rather if they would be a perfect fit for the requirements of the position. Seemed much more GPA based and credential based rather than personality.
