    Executive Assistant Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anchorage, AK
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at City of Gainesville, FL (Anchorage, AK) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They initiated the process with a doodle poll which requested time slots for at least 13 applicants. I was considered even though I am out of state (AK), I did not get very far, though. There were two managers on the teleconference and they did not indulge in chit chat or describe the job, just asked 5 questions. I was notified of the decision to move forward or not in the same way that I was notified of the doodle poll via e-mail.
