Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

Interview

A long and drawn out process: I moved up in the resume pile by knowing a current employee. I had a phone interview and a few weeks later, an in person interview with my potential boss and a couple other department heads. The interview was very conversational - nothing too stressful. I was given a timeline for a response which they did not at all stick to. I was told, however, that I would be contacted when they reached a decision. After waiting a few weeks and not having heard a peep from them, I emailed one of my interviewers about their decision. No response. I waited a few more weeks and just couldn't take it anymore, so I called and discovered that I didn't get the job.

I'm an empty alumni with a really good GPA and references and met the qualifications for the job, and the alumni association still rejected me. I wish I knew where I went wrong.

The most disappointing part, however, is their lack of concern for candidates who are trying to work around a timeline that they don't even try to stick to. I wonder if they ever would have contacted me to let me know I didn't get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Emory University in December 2010.

    Interview

    Recieved email asking if I was interested in the position. I came in for a one-on-one interview with the executive admin. assistant. Went over resume and discussed myself and goals. Next, I met the rest of the department. Basically, discussed my resume and told them about myself.

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate at all. There is a scale used so not able to negotiate pay much.
