Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

Interview

It was on point short and sweet. They had a detailed job description and knew what they were looking for to ensure the right fit. The Hiring Coordinator was great she knew the right questions to ask to gain the information the hiring manager needed from my history.

Interview Questions

  • It was a panel interview so it was mainly a discussion of each of our history and how well we could/would work together.   1 Answer

Negotiation

There was a phone call it was a rush at the point of the offer. I did not negotiate but was told I had opportunity to grow/earn more eventually. I would recommend at least a reasonable counter-offer just in case but they are non-profit very lean so may be an is what it is situation.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted over the phone with a Manager who was very pleasant and personable. She was looking to an assistant to one of the directors and had experience reporting directly to officers of the company, which I had. She was very satisfied with my responses and indicated she would be in touch within a few days.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Fairfax, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview; they emailed first requesting time and day. I was unprepared for this interview thinking I could do it without preparation so I learned a lesson from this interview which cost me the job or second, face to face interview. Overall these interviews at this company are looking for one or two things and if you do not seem to have this one thing (even though you have the 50 other things and 15 years experience) they start getting negative. Had two interviews with this company and both were negative.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Fremont, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Panel style so be prepared because you'll be asked multiple questions by more than four employees. Also, panel interviews can be a bit uncomfortable because of all of the questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Atlanta, GA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    It was a one on one interview in the afternoon completed towards the end of my internship. The position was suggested to me by my mentor. I interviewed with the director of the department and it was generally a short process. I believe she only asked 4 questions which should have been an indication of what was to come. I ultimately did not get the position due to experience level. An older lady with more experience was given the position but did not stay in the position long.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the cost/time of the additional commute would negate the increase in pay (was not worth it).

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Pasadena, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    This process was the most exasperating that I have ever had with any company! I interviewed for 6 (yes 6) various assistant and 2 project managment positions with 4 different departments! I made it to the final selection process twice, each time they chose an internal candidate. It was exhausting, and apparently the departments did not notify the recruiter in their HR department that they selected an internal candidate. I finally moved on and just registered with an executive search firm where I landed a temp to permanent position in healthcare.
