    Manufacturing Engineer Co-Op Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott (United States) in Nov 2019

    Interview

    Initially was contacted via email by my future boss to schedule a 30-min phone-interview. After the initial 1-1 interview, I emailed examples of my CAD work to my interviewer and awaited follow up. A week or so later another phone interview was scheduled, this time with a panel of engineers (those who I would work with if hired) for another 30-min phone interview. 1-2 weeks later I got another phone call from my future-boss with good news that I was hired and an offer letter was extended via email.
