I have a second interview for EA role. I need all suggested questions to ask. I already know I’ll be responsible for maintaining 5 calendars, minutes, scheduling rooms & lunches, supply ordering, mail pick up, calling for repairs in building, phones etc. Also, since I report to 5 executives, do I ask about review/ increase process?

Who is your second interview with? The executives or another EA?

I would also ask them why they like the company they work for? It tells you a bit about their culture and what you have to look forward to. Questions about reviews and increases is more for a recruiter or their benefits person.

I would ask what they miss about the last person in this role, and then explain how you will be able to fill that hole (if, honestly, you can).
