Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (Chicago, IL (US)) in July 2013.

Interview

Hiring and interview process was smooth. I'd interviewed previously with the HR professional, so we didn't go over any of the things we had previously. I had a half day interview, spending time with each person, I would be working with, including the person I was taking over for, as well as testing on applications. I was even able to discuss my benefits questions with the HR professional. The group did a thorough Interview, getting an understanding of whether I would fit into their team and be effective.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    One phone interview from corporate HR department (not in state of employment), one in-person 30min interview split between two executives met one-by-one. Each described how the office works, the roles of the other employees, expectations, "special projects" willingness, and the importance of teamwork which was not very possible because everyone worked nearly around the clock at least M-F but I suspect nights, weekends, holidays. I know I did.
