Administrative Assistant Interview Questions in Tampa, FL

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.

They asked me about 15 questions in person (after the email questions, phone interview, and online timed assessment). That wasn't enough, they wanted me to come back for a second interview and it's not worth it for the pay they're offering. Process is too long and grueling, I will apply to other places offering the same amount, without having to jump through hoops.
