Asked what I would have done if the CEO asked me to a meeting?

6 Answers

I think we must have spoken to the same person. Essentially the Director of Recruiting doesn't want a new boss, or feels that she should be the VPHR, so she's condescending and dismissive. Less

This entire process was insane. I interviewed with a group of entry level HR people, NONE of which had any experience, including the Director of HR, who was very unfriendly, inexperienced and cleary threatened by the new role. needless to say, I interviewed with the entire team as round 1, and not even the Chief Operating Officer. Waste of time allowing inexperienced people interview VP level candidates and chose their boss Less

Stay clear of this position and interview process. There are children responsible for interviewing for this role, those whom would work for this position. Its been open for over a year... and the HR Team is weak and inexperienced and should not be interviewing as a group of 10. The questions they asked were also very basic, something you would ask an entry level HR person. Less

The JD changed from a generalist role including talent management, L&D, etc., to a more specific Administrative role. Salary was not either at a VP level and no bonus payment. I declined to continue in the process. Less

Be glad.. and you are right.. not a VP level position based on how they position it. Less

How experienced are you with event planning? We are organizing events every month for our employees (about 1000) and that would be one of the main tasks for this position.

1 Answers

Comment: every executive assistant does event planning throughout the year, this is not too difficult to expand to any number of participants once you have the basics down for event planning. It seems as the position Gen-Probe is trying to recruit for is less an executive assistant but rather an event planning. As this question of event planning experience was the main focus of all three conducted interviews, it begs the question if this is truly an executive assistant position. The position title should rather read: Event Planner with administrative assistant experience. Less

The phone interview went fine. There was no follow up after the phone interview although I was told they would call me within 1 week. Although after the phone interview I was not interested in pursuing the job, I felt closing the loop is a critical aspect to the interview process. This did not happen. Less
