Executive Receptionist Interview Questions and Answers

Why should we hire you as an executive receptionist?
I have been working as an executive receptionist for over 6 years now, in a company that is much similar to yours. In view of this, I am sure that I am the best person to hire, as I have the skills to handle executive unit representation and assistance, and can effectively and efficiently work to ensure that all tasks are performed in a time-efficient manner.

What duties have you performed in the role of an executive receptionist before?
As an executive receptionist, I was assigned a group of executives to whom I had to provide administrative and clerical support while manning the reception area. Greeting guests and visitors, providing the right type of information, receiving and transferring calls, taking and relaying messages, handling records-keeping and filing work, and overseeing the procurement and storage of office supplies was all part of my work as an executive receptionist.

In your opinion, which part of working as an executive receptionist is the best?
I love my work on the whole, but find it extremely enjoyable when I am presented with a challenge. This may be in the shape of creating and managing filing systems, determining ways of handling irate clients or callers or assisting executive leadership with presentations.

Where would you place your skills on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest)?
I have worked as an executive secretary for a pretty long time now and would rate my skills at an 8.

What is the one thing that you find challenging about working as an executive receptionist?
Let me reiterate that I love challenges so I don’t find anything to be too difficult. The fact that I almost always have to work on several different things at the same time, can sometimes become a bit trying. But then, what is life without challenges?

What would you like to do professionally, 5 years from now?
I would eventually like to train in the capacity of a business manager, for which I am taking evening classes. I realize that saturation in my line of work is quite near, and have already made plans for the future.
