    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at California Endowment (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call and was able to schedule an interview fairly quickly. Came it, thought it went well. Waited a month and never heard back. The interview was straightforward and basic. Was informed the job is very tedious, and that was a bit of a turn off, but I was still interested.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at California Endowment (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    There was immediate response to application and thorough communication on the status of the position. Interview was casual, informative, friendly. I was strongly advised that any inconsistencies found on resume and application with background checks would immediately disqualify me, which is normal, and I didn't have any. But just saying, don't even think about it! Second interview was setup immediately. Different interviewing style, more informative. Both interviews expressed their primary concern being personality and work ethic fit over qualifications, skills, and experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at California Endowment in January 2009.

    Interview

    The process is inconsistent. While most place are focused on allowing the hiring department to determine whether candidates possess the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other attributes to be successful, TCE's process is based on personal connection. The process is neither focused on allowing you the ability to determine whether TCE offers the opportunities, facilities, colleagues, and other attributes necessary for their successful employment; nor, is it focused on having an effective interview process and to enhance the quality of the overall hiring process.

    Negotiation

    TCE is very rigid when it comes to negotiations . . . it used a staid formula that's loose based on market . . .
