Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in February 2015.

Interview Details

This was a phone interview; they emailed first requesting time and day. I was unprepared for this interview thinking I could do it without preparation so I learned a lesson from this interview which cost me the job or second, face to face interview. Overall these interviews at this company are looking for one or two things and if you do not seem to have this one thing (even though you have the 50 other things and 15 years experience) they start getting negative. Had two interviews with this company and both were negative.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the cost/time of the additional commute would negate the increase in pay (was not worth it).

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    This process was the most exasperating that I have ever had with any company! I interviewed for 6 (yes 6) various assistant and 2 project managment positions with 4 different departments! I made it to the final selection process twice, each time they chose an internal candidate. It was exhausting, and apparently the departments did not notify the recruiter in their HR department that they selected an internal candidate. I finally moved on and just registered with an executive search firm where I landed a temp to permanent position in healthcare.
