Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bain Capital in December 2010.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Nothing really, pretty standard interview.   Answer Question

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bain Capital in December 2009.

Interview Details – 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.

Negotiation Details – My headhunter negotiated for me. I was very happy with the package offered.
