    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Met with three staff members for the first interview & covered past work experience + my interest in the org's programs and mission.

    Met with the entire team (~7 people) for an informal get-to-know-you second interview, then completed a skills test (very simple word & excel tasks, as well as a fairly long typing test).

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Was interviewed twice: initial interview and final candidates/second interview. Interviewed first with the two people I would be working directly under. Then second interview was with HR and a higher up so they both could get an overall impression and send their recommendation to the hiring manager. Took them over a month to get back to me on whether I got the job. I was told I would get a call with the final decision within a week after the second interview, but it took them a month to send me an email that they were going with the other candidate. Overall impression, great, friendly people, but they held me on by a thread for way too LONG.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Skirball Cultural Center (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview process, from application to job offer, took approximately 2.5 months. I was contacted for a first interview about 1.5 months after submitting my application via email; resume and cover letter were requested. Because I applied for an administrative position within the Museum Department, I first met and spoke with the Exhibitions Manager for the first interview, In the first interview, we discussed the general responsibilities as required for the position. Some questions that she asked were about my general work style and affirmation of the technical skills listed on my resume. The second portion of the first interview involved meeting with the Museum Director, in which he got a little more personal and asked about my interests and cultural background (they seek a culturally diverse staff in the Skirball). After finishing the first interview, the Exhibitions Manager emailed me requesting references. About a week later, I was asked to come in for the second interview, in which I spent half an hour speaking with the Director again. He shared more about the Skirball as an institution, its staff, and what I could expect from working there. We also discussed salary in the second interview. In the second half, I was sent to HR to take a skills assessment, which was average in difficulty. It tested basic skills on Microsoft Word and Excel, and included a typing test. I received a phone call with a job offer about two days later.
