Accountant/Administrative Interview

Accountant/Administrative

Interviewed at Arista

Interview Details – First, talk about yourself. And then go review your education and experiences on the resume, like causal conversation, finally take a test about accounting knowledge, ex: make adjusting, closing entries, and financial statement. I guess the test is not easy, it takes 2 hours to do. Kinda very good practice for your accounting knowledge.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Arista.

Interview Details – I called, (3 times before someone actually picked up), to return a message regarding an interview for an Admin. Asst. position and was greeted by a lady who kept telling me that I, "can't just call for an interview; I must turn in my resume, then be called"-- even after I explained to her I was returning a call regarding an interview. She then transferred me to another hasty, poorly communicative person who was unable to tell me the salary range. They called on a Friday, wanting to schedule an interview on a Saturday evening, because they had to make a decision by Monday. She said, "Look, if you can' t make it Saturday, it doesn't matter," and tried to rush me off the phone when I tried to ask questions about the position. I said forget it. The lack of professionalism over the phone was enough to tell me no amount of money would ever be enough to work here.

Interview Question – "Can you come in tomorrow evening, (Saturday), for an interview?"   View Answer
