Senior administrative assistant interview questions shared by candidates
Tell me how you would prioritize several very important deadlines all due at the same time.
I stated that I would need to know much more information before I could answer that question, as prioritzation is mostly done on a case by case bases: who gave what to you, what are the companies/departments goals (money, customer satifaction, ect), how do each of these takes lend to the accomplisment of those goals, ect.
It was more of a task test rather than a question. They asked me to identify in what order I would do things at an airport before boarding a plane, from getting my boarding pass to checking a bag and going through security (what order would I put my items through security). Very odd task to work through when I haven't traveled much.
