Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Palantir Technologies in July 2014.

Interview Details

I applied through Linkedin.com and received an email short time later to answer three (3) questions that were somewhat difficult. After submitting my answers, I was asked to come on-site for an interview with the Administrative Operations Team and I met with three (3) admins. I felt the first admin was somewhat rude when I was answering her FIRST question she seemed like she was not even listening. I don't understand why I was even interviewing with admins who have no HR experience. Seem like more of a favoritism interview. The second and third admins were a lot better and I felt that I did well. However, after writing a thank you letter I received a automated system email stating I will not move forward - you would think you would receive a direct email from the recruiter to keep it more personal.

    Interview Details

    I found the job posting on the internet. About a week after I applied I received an email to schedule a short phone interview. I agreed and it seemed to be a pleasant all be it short conversation. At the end of the interview I inquired into the rest of the interview process. I was informed that I would receive another phone interview and if they were interested I could possibly have a physical interview. While I waited for the next phone interview I went on the website to familiarize myself with their interview process. A week later I had my second interview, this interview went well and the job sounded right up my alley. At the end of the interview I was surprised to find out that I would scheduled for another phone interview. Even though it was frustrating me, some of my friends who worked in the corporate world assured me that I wouldn't make it to a third interview without them being interested in me. Based upon my friends views and the websites interview practices I was excited to have another interview. Sadly when that interview happened I quickly found out that this interview was for a completely different job than the one I had applied for. I decided to go with it, I wanted to show how flexible I was. At the end of the interview I took the initiative and inquired into the next phase. I was told that if they were interested I would be scheduled for another phone interview. I was frustrated at this point, but I really wanted the job. By the fourth interview I was more than frustrated, I had spoken to different Admins each time I interviewed, not all of them worked for the department I was applying for and once again I was interviewing for a completely different job. Because of this, when I received the email telling me that I was not going to be moving forward in the interview process I wasn't upset I laughed. I feel just fine not working for a bi-polar company.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Palantir Technologies in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Horrible interviewing process. Palantir strung me along through 5 seperate interviews throughout a two month period. Phone interviews, video interviews, face-to-face interviews... what a nightmare. They seemed like a great company and appeared to be very interested in me. After two months and countless hours spent driving to and from their office for the interviews, I recieved a generic "Sorry, you don't fit what we're looking for at the moment" type email. Since I had been informally speaking with one specific person through the whole process, it seemed as if I had gotten to know him, at least a little bit. After all that time, he didn't have the decency to send a personal email explaining that I wasn't chosen. I'm not expecting an explanation, but really? After months of interviews, I received a computer generated rejection notice? Disappointing.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview questions were simple and straight forward. It seemed like all the people who I spoke with during the interview process kept asking the same basic questions. Why would you like to join our team? What would you bring to the company? Tell us about a difficult problem you solved on your own in a former position.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It was a very long hiring process. It is all about impressing those you speak with to make them like you as a person, and your skills matter but your likes/dislikes matter more.
