    Front Desk Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Singapore Press (Bridgeport, CT) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Was called to schedule an interview and went the following week for the first interview. Practice is a decent size but the inside is weird. It is very loud because there are literally no doors. All the operatories have no doors they are in the middle of the practice side by side and the front desk is a small area next to that so you can image the noise coming for over there. Management gave me a tour of the place and then proceed to a room and had the 1:1 interview. She asked all the typical questions in an interview.. not very hard.. then schedule a working interview. The following week went in for a working interview and shadowed the other receptionist. I was sometimes left clueless because she would go off to do her thing and Im just sitting there like ok no what.. but anyways long story short.. I didn't like it, the dental assistants and doctors didnt bother to say hi they were just in there own world, they do things a lot different there, it gets really busy and very loud.. if you perfer that environment good for you but not for me.

    The process was about 2 weeks long. Applied online for a position and got called about a week later on a Friday for an interview the coming Monday. Interviewers were friendly and just wanted to know more about me and my attitude towards the job, as well as my skill set and ability to cope with stress. Interview was less than half an hour, nothing much to prepare for since they only wanted to know more about me.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Singapore Press (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    1) Panel Interview: with a HR manager and your desk supervisor.

    2) Once that is done, you will be scheduled to do a very VERY RIGOROUS language and reasoning test. 3 hours long. You can cheat by asking someone who have did it - they haven't really changed the test in the last 20 years.

    3) Wait. The wait might kill you, but hang on. It might take 1 - 2 months.

    4) An offer will be made.

    Interview Questions

    • Current affairs, reviewing of your past writing / content producing work for any holes. Do not cheat on your portfolio. These are real journalists with decades of fieldwork under their belts.   Answer Question

    There's a 4 hour written test before interview. I had to answer several grammar questions, write a 2000 word essay, then translate a speech of PM.

    My interview is a very short one. Two interviewers, both are editors. It seems they've decided not to select me before the interview. :(
