Executive Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Research Now in September 2010.
Interview Details – I was initially contacted by an independent recruiter after I submitted my resume in response to the job ad for an executive assistant, bilingual. The recruiter sent me a questionnaire referencing my qualifications and experience, which I completed and sent back to her. A face-to-face interview was then arranged with the company's internal recruiter. This was followed by 3 separate interviews with each of the members of the executive team that the position supported. This was done over the span of a couple of weeks due to the executives' travel schedules. I was one of 3 finalists and was subsequently offered the position.

Reason for Declining – The official offer included a lengthy confidentiality/non-compete agreement (8+ pages) that I was required to sign in acceptance of their conditions of employment. I found it to be too vague, restrictive, punitive, and one-sided; therefore, I rejected the offer.
