Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Bain & Company.

Interview Details – Bain uses outside recruiters/headhunters to find candidates for Administrative positions. The first round, you will meet with 2 people from HR and 1 current EA. In the later rounds, you will meet the Managing Partners that you would be directly supporting. The interview process overall is pleasantly relaxed and isn't just a straight Q&A session; the interviews are quite conversational. Everyone I met with was extremely warm and personable. What's unique about interviewing at Bain is that you can tell that everyone loves working there; I rarely saw that at the other companies I visited for interviews.

Interview Question – The most difficult thing was explaining my work background because I changed career paths 2 years ago. But this is something that I would have to explain in any interview, so certainly was not unexpected. As long as a) this isn't the very first time you've ever interviewed for a job and b) you have at least 1 year of work experience in a similar role, none of the interview questions are going to strike you as difficult or at all unexpected. If you do find anything unexpected, it will be the fact that the interview process is so pleasant.   Answer Question
