Executive Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Volcano Corporation in January 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted by the HR Manager to verify my skills and qualifications.
I was then invited to meet with the Director and the VP of HR.
Both interviews went very well.
I was asked to give them a minimum of two weeks to make their decision about being invited back for a second interview.
I sent both a thank you letter, and the VP actually responded with indication that we would meet again.
After weeks, and no word from the company, I followed up with an email to both the Director and the VP.
I immediately received an email indicating that they would call me immediately.
The HR Director called me to apologize for not informing me that they move on with another candidate about a week prior. She indicated that she thought that she already communicated to me and that she did not realize that she had forgotten.
I find it difficult that employer expects candidates to be professional, yet they are so unprincipled
R&D Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Volcano Corporation in April 2009.
Interview Details – First met with hiring manager and the HR person.
then met at a later date, peers and direct report--about 8 people.
They all seemed to think that their work/products were much more sophisticated and challenging than comparable work in similar companies. A bit of an elitist attitude; an us against the world attitude
