Senior Staff Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

First there was a phone screening, which lasted about 20 minutes. I was told that I would get a phone call back in a week or so if they wanted to proceed further. I received a call after 1 week and it was a Panel Interview of 3 interviewers. The interview lasted about 2 hours. I received the offer after I left.

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Complicated, hard to get through first door, so I was sent in as a temp. Online isn't always great, good people are missed - rather impersonal. referral helps. their recruiting office is really just processing on boarding paper

    Senior Staff Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Walnut Creek, OH

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Walnut Creek, OH) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to HR for Senior staff Assistant position. HR contacted me two weeks later to give me the name of the person scheduling the interviews. One week later contacted me for scheduling.

    Four person panel interview, consisting two nurses, clinical education trainer, and the Senior Staff Assist. The interview was only for 30-minutes and did not allow for extra time. There were four questions, one question from each interviewer.

    I really wish I would have taken notes during the interview. At the conclusion of the interview, I asked for business cards from each of panel participants. No one had cards. I felt really bad at that point, since I did not have the names (could not remember all of them) to send follow-up letters. I did ask the panel I someone could send me an e-mail with the contact names and the Staff Assistant said she would. Two days after the interview, I left her a voicemail gently reminding her to either call me so I could get the name or if she could send me an e-mail. Did not get a voiceamil. On the third day, I left another message. On the fourth day, I sent a letter addressing the Senior Staff Assist only, since she was the person who contacted me for the interview. I tried to address each of the panels questions in the letter and felt it was a good letter.

    I think the Senior Staff Assistant was mad at me for not taking the names down in the interview and was put off by me asking her to contact me. I would have to say that was not very professional of me, but I did not know what to do at that point.

    I felt the interview went well. I had all the skills required for the job. Each one of the panel said they were impressed with my skill set. I think I blew it by asking for the names and they may have thought I was over qualified for the position.
