Company: AbbVie

Location: New York, NY

Role: Research Scientist

Level: Senior

Outcome: Rejected

When did you have this interview?: Last Week

What steps were in the interview process? How far did you get? What do you think about the overall interview experience?

This was a remarkably misogynistic phone screen. The hiring manager asked about my background in protein purification (which I have extensive experience in), then stated that I likely wouldn't be able to perform the math required to successfully scale up a purification. He spent the rest of call pitching me on instead working in a writing role (filing paperwork and doing human resources work), a position he noted would be a contract (unbenefited) role with almost half the salary of the position I assumed I was interviewing for. I was pleasant and open to the alternative role, but after politely declining to pursue the writing position, I never heard from the manager again. I assumed he filled the Sr. Scientist position with a male candidate and sought out other women for the secretary role.

What interview questions did they ask?

So you can purify proteins?
