    Executive Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Playa Vista, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Did a brief phone interview with one of the recruiters and was then passed on for a second round in-person interview at their Westside Office. I met with two women from HR, the questioning was pretty basic/straight-forward. One thing I did find interesting was that one of the interviewers showed up about 15 minutes after it started and the other one left about 15 minutes before it ended, which definitely shook my confidence a little. I ultimately was not passed on to the third round where candidates presumably met with the Executives. The vibe of the office was super cool, very chill and laid back, open-air office environment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Playa Vista, CA).

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process. Had to meet with at least 6 people in the department. Final interview was with the president which was not as nearly intimidating as I imagined. Everyone was calm and the interview was like a conversation in the park, literally. Salary was not discussed with other team members. Only with my HR recruiter.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick phone interview for screening. Only lasted 15 minutes total. I think a longer skype interview with the team would have been next, but I just spoke with the director of HR.

    Interview

    I went through 4 interviews, with four different people. First a Skype interview that lasted about 20 minutes. In this interview we just talked about my resume and my experiences. After that interview I met with HR for about 40 minutes. Pretty straightforward questions. After HR I met with the manager of the department and then the director for about 20 minutes each. I met with HR again and then I was offered the position on the spot. All of this occurred over 2 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day.

    Interview

    The interview process was overall pretty great for me as I got an offer and happily accepted. Started off meeting my eventual boss and some heads of departments and had some good, engaging conversations with all, but things took a serious turn the worse when I met with HR in my second interview. She shared some personal information about herself off the bat which I found slightly inappropriate but tried to forget about it. Later in the interview she pointed out several reasons why she didn't feel like I was a good cultural fit for the agency and why she didn't like me. I defended my candidacy as I best could but I do believe she is entitled to have an opinion and should be able to express that opinion on candidates. I just felt it was unprofessional and reflected the company's culture in a poor light. If I was getting this criticized in an interview would I have to deal with the same kind of blasting in this job? After chatting with my department head I accepted the job and a year later am very happy in this position and truly enjoy working with my team.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult or unexpected. Just had to show some writing examples and materials I've created for internal use and client use and presented them as I did for their intended audience.   Answer Question
