    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Irvine Company.

    Interview

    Applied directly through the Irvine Company website and was contacted pretty quickly to schedule a phone interview. After a week or so was contacted to come in for a face to face interview with hiring manager and vice president of the department back to back. Was a long process but definitely worth it.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Irvine Company (Irvine, CA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Sadly, I have heard so many great things about The Irvine Company. I did not have a good experience. I was interviewed by an amateur 20 year old. It's almost insulting that I took time out of my day to be interviewed by someone who not only could explain the job effectively, but was blatantly rude.

    I was not only qualified, but over qualified. I would suggest having a team of 3 or more doing an interview. Clearly this lady was having a bad day, or just didn't like me by my appearance. It was definitely personal! Honestly, it was the worse interview I have ever had.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time where you had to make a decision and that decision turned for the worse. What did you do and how was the outcome?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Irvine Company (Irvine, CA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I interviewed with three different Irvine Co. people all on the same day, along with a whole lot of other people. My second interview was with the head guy, kind of accidentally. He wanted to hire me, and told me so, and wondered if we should even have the 3rd interview with one of his employees.
