    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Virginia International University (Fairfax, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Overall simply straight forward process. First I had a phone interview, then another one with VP in person. Questions asked were a little bit unprofessional. The interview began with traditional interview questions and some behavioral questions, but shifted to a kind of weird questions in the end. I thought that was because the VP was not professional recruiter or lacked experience of hiring people. Otherwise, everything went smoothly. Staffs were nice and friendly.
