The questions ranged from softball questions, to really hard ones that I wasn't expected to know. Overall it went rather well I feel.

I send a thank you note reaffirming my interest but never received a reply. The same position is still advertised. I found the whole process curious.

Interview Details – I was an employee referral for an executive assistant opening. The initial phone interview was used as a screening interview. The next phase was with an HR representative. The interview was difficult and monotonous. The HR rep never varied her style or type of questions. It was strictly a situational interview. Based on her "What would you do if this happened" questions, it was my impression that the hiring manager was either difficult to work with or that I would be handling nothing but problem situations day after day.
