    Receptionist Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SMART Technologies (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter for this company is awful. She initially contacted me by phone and email to schedule a time to discuss the job. Scheduled a phone interview with me and did not call at scheduled day and time. I sent follow up emails to reschedule the phone interview. She told me by email that she would contact me with the day and time for a new phone interview. Finally, the next week I called her her office in Canada and finally talked to her about job. All the while, she keeps mentioning how busy she is and has run to another meeting. How rude and unprofessional. I get in person interview. The staff members I talked to were nice. Standard interview questions. Job was not offered to me. Okay, that is fine. A month later the recruiter finally sends me an update about the position. A month later.

    Interview with company recruiter first, District Manager second, do a presentation of 30/60/90 day plan with a team for the third interview.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SMART Technologies (Seattle, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR via email requesting time for a phone interview. The phone interview was conducted by HR. I felt the interview went well and was told the next step would be an in-person interview with the two hiring managers. After several days, I had not heard any feedback and had another job offer to consider. I checked in with my contact and was enthusiastically ensured I was a viable candidate. They asked if I could hold off the other job offer for a week (which I did). They asked my interview availability (which was open). The week came and I did not hear from them so I went with the other job offer. This was unfortunate as I do think I would have enjoyed this position.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were fairly standard, but in depth. It was a good give-and-take conversation and I felt like I learned alot of about the position. There is not one question that stood out. There were no behavioral interview questions. However, when I asked, they said there would most likely be behavioral interview questions with the hiring manager.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SMART Technologies in April 2014.

    Interview

    Terse, slow, and red flags were raised. A little dry and less revealing than others. Convoluted and often indecisive . But a great place to get a practice exam but not deeply technical. Flying to HQ is a good idea. More team members participating would allow for more insight into the culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of probing questions about personal life seemingly to to avoid work/life balance.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SMART Technologies in July 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with corp recruiter, then District manager, then phone interview with National Sales manager and then the offer. Took place over the course of about two months and was a pretty easy process back then. I was very excited about the prospect of working for SMART at the time as it was just a case of leaving my old employee to find something new and exciting. I also knew that SMART was in trouble financially bit I was willing to take the risk for my career as it was and always will be a good mark on my resume!

    I applied through the company website and get an email from the technical manager within one week. Ask some questions to clarify something. When do you expect to receive your Master’s degree?
