    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at OMERS (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Being interviewed by Omer's was by far, one of the most unprofessional experiences of my life. I was strung along for 2 1/2 months and given false hope the entire time. I was extremely excited for the potential opportunity but feel as though they aren't as clear on who they would like to hire.

    Pretty easy interview process. General behavior questions. the Managers were very serious, makes the candidate feel nervous.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OMERS (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process was pretty straight forward. I received a call for an interview and met with two of the managers. They were very friendly and made you feel at ease. Standard behaviour questions, getting to know you and your background. Was called back in for a second interview and was given an offer at the end. It seems they are looking more for personality and how well they can train you/fit within the team than prior experience.
