    Field Clinical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Abbott (Austin, TX (US)).

    Interview

    I was given 3 days notice to attend an interview in the Austin office from out of town. There was 0 flexibility in the interview date. After taking off work and making last minute travel arrangements, I attended the interview. Afterwards, I sent thank you emails and followed up, but never heard back from them. If this is any indication of how employees are treated at Abbott, I dodged a bullet.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott in July 2020.

    Interview

    I had a call with a recruiter which was easy and went well. Next I interviewed with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was ten minutes late to our thirty minute interview, talked the entire time, asked me no questions, concluded by telling me her next steps are to have me interview with three others on her team, and then present a marketing plan to the team. I then got the rejection email 7 days later. I assume I was asking too high of a salary and they had a good applicant of pools. It was still bizarre and made me feel like I didn't really get a chance since I wasn't asked anything and the hiring manager dominated the conversation.

    I was torn inside anyway because I've heard very bad things about the culture at Abbott. That's the salary it would have taken for me to make the move. I was excited about the opportunity though. Oh well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott in April 2020.

    Interview

    It was a lot of standard "how do you react to this situation" questions. While the questions dug further than I anticipated, the interviewers were friendly and maintained a relaxed environment.
