Easy Interview

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2014.

Interview Details – I easily applied online. Once you get your info in the kaiser Talent network its pretty easy to apply for other jobs within the company. I then received a call to come in and interview. I was interviewed by two managers who were very polite and professional. Interview went well but I think I may have been over qualified for the position at hand. That being said I am still applying in hopes to soon become part of the Kaiser family.

Interview Question – How would you deal with someone who wanted to enter the office and refused to sign the log book.?   View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview Details – Panel interviews are conducted. No one other than myself, arrived at scheduled time, nor apologize. Promotes oftentimes form within, leaving those outside of the company little hope to become an employee. Often the temporary positions last 2 yrs or more, then are hired by another department full time, usually taking a pay decrease.

Interview Question – Wanted to know why I left a former employer and didn't stay when the company was being split into 2 companies.   View Answer

Interview Details – Most interviews are conducted by panel and often involve a selection from pre-prepared list of questions, although some also involve some kind of performance testing as well. It's usually a lengthy process, so except for positions where they have an urgent need, don't expect quick results. Most are planned and organized through their in-house HR department.

Interview Question – I really don't recall, but it was probably something about identifying your own weaknesses.   Answer Question
