      Current Employee, more than 5 years
      Abbott Park, IL
      CEO Approval

      Great benefits and competitive compensation. Many opportunities for growth and change. Gives back to the community. Executive leadership (Miles White) is one of the best CEO's in the country.


      With all of the constant change due to Mergers, Acquisitions and divestitures, Abbott needs to look inward to help employees with organizational change management. The location of the far northern suburbs can be difficult to reach for individuals in downtown Chicago and Western suburbs. Daily commute can be brutal.

        There a significant number of people there that really care.


        Leadership in their technology department lacks the ability to provide vision, cohesion, and overall sentiment toward her peers or subordinates. It's amazing that an organization so large can let such lackluster leadership exist at the CXX level. Absolutely amazing. If there is such a thing as the boys club Abbott has created the girls club and it is evident.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Sales Support Specialist

      I had a felony 20yrs ago and recently released. It would have nothing to do with these jobs. My history was stellar as industrial sales with engineering background, Now I want sales support positions which I have experience. I interview really well. I wait until an in person interview to bring this up so they have a better feel for me as a person. I am still navigating how and when to discuss this topic. I feel it needs to be brief and then pivot to how my skills can help the company.



      Do you have general tips on how to respond if in an interview I’m told that I’m overqualified for the job (skill wise and salary wise) ?


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
