Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Saskatoon, SK

The process took a day - interviewed at Adecco in July 2010.

Interview Details The first time I went to there office it was just for temp work. I called in to ask about how to sign up, the person asked me a few pre-screen questions then set up a time for interview a couple days later. It wasn't much of an interview more just them seeing what you are looking for and feeling you out a bit. It went well, I started my first temp job the first day. Also some assesment testing was required. I had applied for admin work so I had to complete assesments for word, excel, data entry etc.

Interview Question – There were no hard questions. Just what are you looking for. Where does your experience lie, what are your wage expectations..that kind of thing. Not a real interview   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, they have set rates the pay for specific positions.
