    Management Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Once passing the written exam, the interview will be at the Personnel Department, usually with a two-member panel. The average time is 20-30 minutes for this entry-level position. I felt it was important to discuss education and any past or current jobs that were relevant to the position you're applying for. When the panelists ask questions, answer them as concisely as possible, without rambling. If you forget to say something, there is an opportunity at the end of the interview to add it.

Almost at the same time(July 2016) got all three internal interviews scheduled with representatives from the department. Same drill again - interviews with 10 questions. Then I received a call from each department within 1 to 7 days with job offers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was 2 weeks after the submission of application. This interview was very short and simple. There was two interviewers; One was from management department, the other was from technical department. They had a list of question set and asked it to everyone, which I thought it was fair to assess with the same tool. First interview only takes 20 minutes. After first interview, I got a letter of your score/grade 2 weeks later. Few weeks later, several division contacted me and set dates for second interview.
