    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Abbott Nutrition (Columbus, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I did an 10 minute online interview and was flown to the Columbus office for an interview with two managers and then spoke to a previous intern. The whole process was unorganized and the interviewer was told to go to the wrong building and we ended up doing a phone interview so I missed class and was flown out for no reason.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Nutrition (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Brought in twice to be interviewed by two different managers, the first was looking for a contractor while I was interested in a salaried position. Regardless, I interviewed with her team individually and after meeting with her last, she referred me to a different manager who was looking for a salaried employee. I met with him briefly for a general discussion, after which he offered to bring me back to interview with his team a few days later. For the second day of interviews, I met with his team in two group meetings and the discussion focused on technical problem solving and career interests. An offer was made the following week with a start date of 2 weeks later. Overall a positive interview process, although I have since learned that mine was exceptionally short.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that phone interview, I met the hiring manager at a coffee shop for an informal interview. Then I was contacted by HR to schedule phone interviews with several other people on the team.

    The hiring manager apprised me of the timeline and got in touch in a timely way to let me know they had selected another candidate. Everyone was respectful and kind throughout. I got the impression Abbott has a good culture. I did think the interview was a bit too informal and not a deep enough dive on skills. Meeting offsite was odd, and made me wonder if someone else already had the job and the interview process was perfunctory. But maybe that's just this teams's style.
