    Administrative Assistant Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three parts. First was the initial interview with the recruiting officer. It was comprised of interview questions which are to be submitted to the supervisor of the legal department and a series of test to establish your proficiency and Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you pass that part your resume and application will be submitted to the supervisor in the legal department. That is when the second part I have the interview process comes in; meeting with the direct supervisor. If you are chosen beyond that interview you will then meet with whom you will be working under to see if you would fit personality wise.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    - Phone screen call with HR
    - One-on-One interview with manager
    - Group interview with management

    The manager spoke for appx. 45 min. and asked me two questions in the hour long interview. Even still, I was invited back for group interviews.

    With KP, the positions/departments are extremely hit-or-miss. Some departments are awesome and positive, others are just the opposite.
