Executives count on administrative assistants to keep busy schedules and company activities as clear and easy-to-navigate as possible. Expect questions about your organizational, time management, and communication skills. Many of these questions will be story-based, so come ready to explain a time when you successfully juggled multiple deadlines or were able to handle difficult customers at the front desk. Though these interviews focus primarily on soft skills, you may be asked to answer a question about your ability to use basic administrative software.
At my interview it was the vagueness of the questions which I am sure were aimed to discover my personality. I had a hard time understanding what she wanted from me in a responce. I was unsure of the question she was asking me. In the new process it is probably the activities they engage you in that most people are not expecting.
