Executive Assistant Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Bain Capital (Boston, MA).
Second interview was coordinated a month after the first so the timing is dependent on finding the right candidate.
- General questions were answered and nothing out of the typical administrative questions. Answer Question
Worked with a recruiter so little negotiation was done.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Bain Capital (Boston, MA) in December 2010.
They are very quick in the hiring process when they decide you're a good fit. Two interviews, one with HR manager and another with team lead. Typical interview. Team lead was an awkward conversationalist.
- Nothing really, pretty standard interview. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Bain Capital (New York, NY) in December 2009.
On first round interview I met with 2 Managing Directors and Office Manager. The interviews were pretty basic, mostly run through your resume and some personality questions. They asked me if I has any questions and I asked what their take on company culture was and what their ideal assistant would be like. I was with each person for about a half hour. On the second round I met with an HR manager who had flown in from ther HQ in Boston to meet with me. Again, very basic conversation about my resume etc...I got my offer within a week after checking my references.
My headhunter negotiated for me. I was very happy with the package offered.
