    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Électricité de France (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired on a project-based so the interview was rather simple in terms of logistics. Short chat with the person in the company who got my contact from a pool of resumes. Then a real interview with the project manager who managed that specific project. Questions were not hard and quite basic. Guess they really needed someone urgently.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Électricité de France in April 2017.

    Interview

    La personne m'a demandé de me présenter, ensuite d'expliquer pourquoi je me suis orientée vers un tel BTS. Puis elle m'a démolie psychologiquement tout au long de l'entretien, aucune indulgence vis à vis de mon jeune âge et du fait que ce soit mon premier entretien. Elle m'a conseillé de me remettre en question , et m'a dit que je ne savais ni mener un entretien ni me présenter.
    Cette personne m'a littéralement rabaissée et humiliée. Elle ne m'a pas regardé dans les yeux une seule fois durant l'entretien. J'ai finit en larmes à la sortie.
    Un calvaire.
