    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Harbourvest (Boston, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple. I was referred via a recruiter and had the interview set up in about a week. I first met with an HR rep, and then two assistants that worked closely with the team this role would be supporting. They were all very easy to talk to. I found it more of a conversation than an interview, which I always find beneficial for an admin role. I got a call back about an hour after I had left. The second round was with the team I would be supporting. Again, same old questions, and I found it to be more of a conversation. Everyone was very likable. They then brought in (2) admins together. They seemed to ask more of the "tough questions." I didn't really click with one of the ladies. At the end of it all, they said they went with another candidate. I didn't receive any feedback, which is annoying but overall, I was impressed with their offices. One weird thing, they had me fill out a paper application in the lobby. I haven't done that in years!
