    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock Kelso Capital (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Found the company through a recruiter. Having read other reviews on here, I had prepped myself for a difficult interview but it seems they have a different Director of Administration now. The interview was relaxed and friendly and the person had clearly prepped and read through my resume because she asked very specific and pertinent questions about my experience and career. In the end, we agreed that the role that was open wasn't a great match for me, but the company sounded good and I would go back to interview for a different role there if something else opened up. I appreciated the focus on my interests and career goals (not just what I could do for them) so that nobody had to waste their time pursuing a poor fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock Kelso Capital (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Terrible interview.!!!!! I agree with whoever posted the other review. The receptionist was the most pleasant part of the interview. I also interviewed with the Director of VP administration ( office Manager ) She was NOT Friendly! Asked me basic interview questions you would ask if you had no experience or this was your first job,.. strengths, weakness, biggest challenge, biggest accomplishment, what type of animal would you want to be if you could be...come on really? ... She did not have a copy of my resume,. knew nothing bout my experience nor seemed to care. I started asking questions and she said " Can I finish before you start asking questions" RUDE!!!! Sorry no one would want to work with a person like that...good luck for whoever does... not me!

    Reasons for Declining

    Would never want to work with such an unfriendly person!

    Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock Kelso Capital (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Receptionist was quite professional and pleasant to deal with. That's as far as you'll get with the pleasant treatment.

    Met with the "Director of Administration" which is basically an overly exaggerated title for just a plain old Office Manager.

    No attempt to connect with the candidates. Straight to business, but lacking the professional part of business mode.
    The woman was not prepared at all. Did not have a copy of my resume, did not know what was on my resume nor bothered to go over the contents of my resume (you know, to determine whether or not one is competent enough to fulfill the position).

    Asked typical HR questions that one gets from a quick google search, such as:
    -If you were an animal, what would you be?
    -What are your strengths?
    -What are your weaknesses?
    -Name a time you faced a challenge in a workplace.

    When asked to elaborate on an inquiry she had made, it was as if you had insulted her mother. Very condescending.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Why would one be interested to work at a company that chooses to have an unprofessional person such as the Office Manager represent them at an interview, where there is a blatant lack of common courtesy when it comes to your typical interviewing process etiquette.
