I was contacted by a recruiter for an Administrative Assistant position that I applied for. She asked me a few questions, such as: Why are you interested in this position?, What salary do you prefer?, Tell me about your current postion and some of the people you support?, Calendar management skills?, Tell me about the non profit you've worked with before?, What is your involvement with other departments?, etc. It lasted for about ten minutes and she asked me to come in the next day for testing (no pass or fail, just trying to get scores) and to interview with the manager.
The testing was over Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and typing. I didn't think it was tough at all. I did very well on it.
Interview: The manager pretty much skimmed through my resume and asked me questions off of that. Other questions: Why are you interested in this position? Why are you considering leaving the one you're at? What's your interaction with customers? Do you feel comfortable doing certain things pertaining to the job? Five words to describe yourself. Why should we hire you? Very conversational and not soo much question and answer.
It was different than the other interviews I've had. I believe that was mostly due to the manager's personality. I didn't get the job but did get to talk to the recruiter about other opportunites within CHOA.
