Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Colorado Department of Corrections.

Interview Details – Interviewing was very pleasant, there were two managers present who bounced questions off me and allowed me to answer in the privacy of a small office. Notes were taken but did not detract from the relaxed atmosphere. Two week turnaround from date of interview to date of hire.

Interview Question – Tell us why we should hire you.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They stated that I would receive a certain salary paid on the last business day of each month, and they would brook no discussion of a higher salary since that was the income dictated by State of Colorado.
