Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in March 2017.

Interview

Phone screening process was very good. In person interviews more challenging because staff are not well trained to conduct interviews. Offered little time for candidate to present and the panel talked constantly which made it difficult to find an entry point without appearing rude.

Interview Questions

  • Not very well thought out questions. Low level administrative staff feel empowered to "screen" you without the benefit of having experience to it.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Average but I knew the interviewer from a prior position. I was comfortable. I had to go take a typing test too to qualify. And the ski TB test because it's a hospital

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Aurora, CO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Hasty and in retrospect, sloppy. While I was happy to be contacted over the "nothing gets done" holiday period, I was pressed to commit to a panel interview before leaving for vacation. I made time, and was told 'd have an answer by XX which was right before vacation. I didn't hear from them until I got back. Not knowing was at the back of my mind during my trip. While my vacation wasn't ruined, I was distracted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Your first interview is a group interview which consists of 9 other job applicants. You're given 5 minutes to get to know the person next to you. You then introduce them summarizing the information they provided. Next, they go around the room twice so that you answer two questions that are CBI (Critical Behavior Interviewing) questions which are randomly selected. The next and last interview is with the Manager and staff of the department for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2014.

    Interview

    I easily applied online. Once you get your info in the kaiser Talent network its pretty easy to apply for other jobs within the company. I then received a call to come in and interview. I was interviewed by two managers who were very polite and professional. Interview went well but I think I may have been over qualified for the position at hand. That being said I am still applying in hopes to soon become part of the Kaiser family.
