    Part Time Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    This was a job share role, for a part-time job in a STEM department. As I do freelance work as a science writer, I thought this would be very interesting. The interview process began when the woman who I was sharing the role with came to meet me in the reception area and took me for a walk around the building. When she showed me the library, I explained about my interest in science, but she didn't seem to care. I asked her what she did in her role, to show my interest in the duties of the position; she looked at me like I was crazy and said, "I'm an administrator." The actual interview was a panel interview, with three people on the panel: one was my potential manager, one was an HR person, and I forget who the third person was.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a long time ago, so I don't remember the exact question, but I was asked what I would do in a situation if my manger was away - I vaguely remember something to do with someone not being able to attend an event.   1 Answer
