    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HomeStreet.

    Interview

    HR found my resume on Monster.com and requested a phone interview. She was very professional and a wonderful person to work with. She is a great face for the company. After the phone interview I was asked to come in for an face to face interview with the Manager. After having to reschedule due to his timing issues, I went in for the face to face interview only to be told he couldn't make it. I paid for parking in down town and took a large piece of my time to dedicate to the interview. Strike one and what should have been a huge red flag. We rescheduled and I showed up for the second try for the face to face interview. The manager was pleasant, but talked a lot about how he wanted to replace his current EA as she didn't perform well enough. (Red flag number two, never allow anyone to speak badly of an employee, they will do it to you as well). If it weren't for the HR rep, I probably would not have accepted the position, but based on her and pleasant and professional nature, I accepted. As to be expected, the outcome wasn't a good match for myself and the manager. The interview process worked well with HR, not with the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about marketing, and how I could assist with their overall marketing plans. This is an EA role, not a marketing role.   1 Answer
