    Human Resources Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at R&D Systems (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It started off with a brief phone interview followed by a in person interview a few days later. The interview process was low-stress due to constant contact with the recruiter. The phone interview questions consisted of personal questions, and why was I interested in the position. The in-person interview consisted explaining my resume. What I did and how it impacted the company. After my one-on-one interview I had a group interview with the rest of the department that consisted of situational questions that required specific stories at a job/project.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at R&D Systems (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Conducted 2.5 hour review with the managers and lab members. I was given a knowledge test, and then the group asked questions from a list for the rest of the time. The questions were not particularly difficult, being a mix of personality and science knowledge questions. I did not feel terribly confident about it at the time.
