    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center (Santa Monica, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    applied online, received a call back where a few basic questions about education/work experience were asked. scheduled a 1:1 interview, which was actually with the office manager and the hiring supervisor from HR. standard interview questions about strengths, weaknesses, why UCLA Health, and a series of work ethics scenarios. overall, a decent experience, with friendly interviewers, but priorities on work experience too strong for an entry level position. keep a happy, smiley (literally) demeanor, and you should do fine. if your work experience aligns with their expectations, you should get a call back, although they're not good at returning emails or phone calls, so aggressive following up is necessary.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center (Santa Monica, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I have interviewed a couple of times. It is very difficult to get an interview at either facility.
    They are extremely selective on who they interview, much less hire. Apparently for one position they get thousands of resumes. I was asked several questions on my clinical acumen, case examples, vignettes and a bioethical challenge.
