Personal Assistant Interview

Personal Assistant
Maidenhead, England (UK)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hitachi in July 2014.

Interview Details – I applied through a recruitment agency, and was in the interview a week later. The interview was with a lady from the HR department and the two Japanese men I would be working for as PA. The interview was in half English and half Japanese. The discussion was very informal, and I was glad to have made them laugh. Probably one of the best interviews I had in my search.

The downside was that I was their second choice and they kept me for almost 3 weeks while they decided.

Interview Question – What have you done in your previous work that will help you be a good PA?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, the package was already very nice.
