    Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Abbott Laboratories (Chicago, IL (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Abbott at their Chicago. The process took one week. First I was contacted by the recruiter. The HR is a very nice and warm person. Then I had a technical phone round with the manager. I was selected for the in-person interview. The interview process was great. But the company is not reliable at all. Via email, I was told that I have been hired. This was on a Friday. They called me for a drug test on Monday and then on Monday they sent out an email saying that they had hit a snag and goofed up on the workforce count and no longer have the necessary resources to hire me. They also said that they will look into it and try and correct this glitch. Its been 3 weeks and I haven't heard from them neither are they replying to my emails. I suggest extreme caution when dealing with Abbott. #unprofessionalConduct.
