    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alameda, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott (Alameda, CA (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There were four attorneys in the panel. It was the onsite interview. The Department head, an outside counsel, an off-site counsel and another in-house counsel took turns asking questions.
    The questions were mostly work-based and delving into details of my work experience and resume. It was not intimidating, but more conversational.
