    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City Harvest (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went fine and was asked to come in the following week to meet hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Here's the biggest problem - the interviewer went on about himself. Kept interrupting when I tried to explain my background. I literally had no opportunity to discuss my background and experience because I would be asked a general question about why I wanted to work there and would get interrupted after getting a few words out for him to talk about why he joined. It was the most bizarre interview. It was with the board liaison, NOT a qualified person with an HR background.   1 Answer
