    Quality Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pomona, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied online. Was sent an email to set up a time and date with a recruiter a couple days later. The recruiter was actually a little rude throughout our one hour phone interview. She had no basic knowledge about the position but acted as if I was dumb for asking the specific questions that I had. She was quick to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager though. Promptly got a rejection email about two days later. Even though I didnt get the position, I really appreciated how efficient and streamlined Abbott's interview process was. No fake promises or email tag, just prompt and honest communication.

    Software Engineer-I Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alere (Charlottesville, VA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    During my initial phone screen, I was told that the hiring manager was "very impressed" with my background. After another, more technical phone screen, I was invited for an in-person interview, which was a 2 hour drive from my house.

    I showed up on time and was as polite and professional as possible. I interviewed with 6 employees over a 1.5 hour period. At the end I felt as though I had left a fairly good impression. I was told by the hiring manager that he would be discussing the results of the day's interviews with his co-workers and would give me an update the next day. This update never came.

    After 3 days I sent a follow-up email to the hiring manager asking if he had any updates for me, and received no response. At around 2 weeks post-interview I sent another follow-up email and again received no response. About 3 days after this email, my application status on their web portal was set to "not selected". I received no email of rejection.

    Don't expect any updates or professionalism from this office should you fail their interviews.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alere (Gretna, LA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    walked around and showed you different arears of the lab, different areas were others work, what they epectout of you. They quoted one price the interviewer quoted another. I would say a high school student would be perfect for the job. not an Adult with children and responsibilities.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. Interview with manager, interview with CIO.

    We reviewed work samples and discussed them.

    HR was not really involved, which was nice.
