    Front Desk Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Joie de Vivre (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First it started with meeting the front desk manager, and going over my past work history and current availability, and what options of schedule I would be interested in, in terms of part-time or full-time. He also asked me why I was interested in working with their company, what skills I can contribute to their team, and also gave me some problem scenarios and asked me how I would fix them. The general manager also came to speak to me and introduced himself and the company and their goals. He also asked me a few questions to get to know me, and also informed me what they expect in terms of how employees should conduct themselves in their workplace and how it should also comply and boost the company's goals.
