    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Douglas County School District (CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for an Administrative Assistant position at their Admin building in Castle Rock. The building is large and professional looking. I was greeted by the employee who called me for an interview and she sat with me and small-talked while I waited for my interview. I realize this was probably a way to try to get me to loosen up a bit, because the interview was a panel with 6 people. Everyone was nice and shook my hand individually. However, it was intimidating and it seemed a little excessive to have a panel interview for an Admin Assistant position. They each read pre-selected questions from a script and scribbled notes on my resume based on my answers. Only one of them answered my question regarding what they loved best about working for DCSC, as everyone else just agreed with the person who answered. I was told I would receive a phone call the following day regarding whether or not I am selected to move forward with another group interview.
