Very Easy Interview

Office Assistant/Front Desk Clerk Interview

Office Assistant/Front Desk Clerk
Reno, NV

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Syntel in September 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was conducted by Yahoo Messenger only. I was offered the job, only the offer letter came in my Spam folder and I was told I was going to be paid $25 an hour. Too good to be true. Glassdoor.com sent me an email stating that the job may be illegitimate, but gave me the wrong company name. When I copied the original email from glassdoor, I never received another word from glassdoor.com.

Interview Question – It all sounded too good.   View Answer
