Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – I joined the Firm years ago, prior to the merger of PriceWaterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand. The hiring and interview process at both firms was fair and realistic, and I actually received offers from both of those earlier Firms. I could not realistically comment on the hiring and interview process for the current combined Firm.

Interview Question – I don't recall anything either difficult or unexpected at either PriceWaterhouse or Coopers & Lybrand, and again could not comment now on what is expected or asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I received what I asked for, so it was straightforward.

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
Hartford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at PwC in April 2011.

Interview Details – I spoke applied to this job via there website. Recruiter called me and basically just asked salary expectation,, very very general of what I have done previously, why I left last company etc...
Got face to face interview call back same day. Interview was with 2 people. Very friendly folks, the office is nice but a bit sterile. Very quiet. This is a financial firm so you have to expect that I suppose.
Typical inerview , what I've done, why I left, what do I know about them, etc...
Should know that there admins work all together and there is one person in charge of them who will distribute the work. No one person works just for one person except for the Executive assistants.

Met with 2 people while I was there and was suppose to get call back if I made the cuts to meet with person I would have worked with but did'nt happen. Good luck to you.

Interview Question – What do I know about them went into details a bit . They have many areas so that may have been why.   Answer Question
