Project Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abbott (Plano, TX (US)).

Interview

Applied online. Internal recruiter contacted me about a week later to schedule a call with the hiring manager. Conducted a short (about 30 minute) phone interview with the hiring manager a couple days later. Was contacted the following day to schedule video interview with 8 people, which consisted of 2-2.5 hour video interviews each across 2 days. All the interviews all went great. Everyone was very personable and each interview was very conversational and comfortable. Everyone I met with stated what a great fit I would be for the position and the team. I sent a thank you email immediately after all the interviews ended and received a very positive response, but after that I was completely ghosted. I attempted to follow up with a couple emails sent a couple weeks apart, but received no response. After over a month I finally called the internal recruiter, who seemed very annoyed with my call. She did finally respond a few days later that they decided to move forward with an internal candidate. While I appreciate a company who promotes from within, there is no excuse to complete ghost a candidate who spent a lot of time and energy to go through their interview process.

Advice to Abbott - your candidates deserve follow up after their investment of time and energy to go through the interview process. It is unprofessional to not at least send a generic thanks but no thanks email after a lengthy interview process.

    Application

    I interviewed at Abbott in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process started with a recruiter phone call to set up actual phone interview with the hiring manager. If the call goes well, in person interview is set up and confirmation is sent via email by the recruiter with the hiring manager copied. It was nice that the recruiter included documents that helped understand the company background a bit more and a list of names of who would be on the interview panel. The in person interview was scheduled for 2 hours with two separate interview panels.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abbott (Mumbai (India)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth. However, the Talent acquisition group was very negative and did not know how to talk. The entire conversation only made you feel to not take up this job even though the interview and role was good.
    The compensation which would not work for me was explained in the beginning of the interview and yet after wasting my time in multiple rounds they came back with the same compensation that I had initially rejected.
