    Overall, the HR team is diligent and thorough. The interviewer must be spot on, not once but numerous times throughout the interview process.
    1. Initial contact: Telephone interview
    2. Interview: with HR rep alone
    3. Interview: Depending on the schedules of the directors/asst. directors, you may have individual or group interviews consisting of (3-4). Each department has their preference.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abbott Laboratories.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume, received an email from HR to invite me for an interview a week later. Interview was less than 15 minutes, so I knew that I didn't get it and the employer most likely had someone else in mind for the role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Laboratories in March 2012.

    Interview

    I recieved a call one week after application was submitted. I went in for an interview 1st with direct manager, then group panel, finally with another manager. Wasn't so bad except I had my first at 8am then the other interviews scheduled for later in the day around 230pm. So I had most of the day spent there, oh did I mention this location is 20mils or so away from home?They asked typical questions. Alot of behavior. I came back in for a second interview the next day to see one person. Took them a VERY long time to get back to me by phone(approx 1mth later) in which I was not offered the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abbott Laboratories in July 2011.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with someone from the corporate office. First phone call was to schedule a phone interview. Second interview was the actual interview. The interview lasted 15-20 minutes. Since the person conducting the interview was from corporate they didn't know any details about the position. It was very formal and serious. It took a long time for them to get back to me.
