    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pensacola, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of West Florida (Pensacola, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Rescheduled once, met with two people but was given very little information before going in as to what the job was even for. (I applied to an admin pool for different departments.)
     Director hadn't reviewed anything in my resume apparently and then asked me "how I thought I would fit this position". I replied I had no idea, since her current admin had given me NO INFO on what the job entailed, even though I asked for this specifically by email. I explained to her that it was a job pool application but my background was in Computer Sci, admin, and cyber forensics so an admin in support of the same department should be a great fit and assignment. Disappointingly, the position was part time, grant-based, nothing permanent or benefited, and not exactly college graduate suitable. I was emailed the following Monday and told I was not selected, etc. Pleasant interview, but pretty much a waste of time the way it was set up and the way info was exchanged (or not) in pursuit of a discussion of the position.
