    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First step was a phone interview. Next was a in person interview with a senior administrative assistant and other admins in the department. Lastly an in person interview with the executive this role would be supporting.
    Overall negative experience because after waiting 2 weeks following the 3rd round of interviews I received no response to any of my follow up and eventually an automated reply from the jobs website, rather than a personal email or phone call.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter on a college career fair and she seemed very interested. Later that day I got a call from the recruiter and she asked me if I have time to interview the following day. The interview itself was conducted by two recruiters. One of them asked all the questions and the other just took notes. Even though the interview went very well and I solved all the technical questions, I did not get an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at National Instruments in January 2017.

    Interview

    I talked to NI at my college career fair and they were there to specifically interview for ELP. After a 20 minute discussion with the recruiter, they said they'd email us if we got an interview. I received an interview and it took place a couple days later on campus. The interview was half behavioral and half technical. The technical questions were fairly easy and exactly the ones that are posted on this site. They haven't changed the questions in like 10 years.
