- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Chapin Hill Advisors.
There was a phone interview followed by two in-person interviews. I met with other senior management in addition to the CEO. Questions about my past experiences, what types of things I excelled at, what types of activities I most enjoyed in my former positions as well as 3 activities I would have deleted in past jobs. Then I was given a series of written tests which included simple math problems, alphabetizing a list, writing a letter, finding mistakes in a current letter and a series of time-sensitive tasks which needed to be prioritized.

- Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chapin Hill Advisors in September 2014.
The President of the company had one phone interview with me which seemed more like a sales call. We talked little of my experience and she spent about an hour telling me the "benefits" of the company, all of which turned out to be false. She was surely trying to sell me on the position and validate her company. I had a second phone interview with the current personal assistant and she actually asked me standard interview questions. Over a month later I received a call back from the president asking "If I offered you the position would you actually accept it?" After I replied "Yes" she responded "Really? Oh, Okay Great!" As if she was in disbelief. I then had to take a series of personality and basic skills tests. These tests were simple math problems (addition and subtraction), writing a draft business letter, and putting names in alphabetical order.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chapin Hill Advisors (New York, NY) in December 2011.
It began with a phone interview which was followed by a formal on site interview. I was interviewed by the CFO / Owner and a colleague which after I was hired discovered was a Temp. During the interview I was asked a few questions that were average nothing mind boggling. Math, IQ and Skills testing were performed.(All were written tests)
