    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AbbVie in December 2018.


    2 interviews, first was talking through how I would approach certain data analysis questions. Second was a lot more relaxed and it was more informational telling me about myself and what they're looking for. There weren't as many behavioral questions as I had expected
