About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.

About Treasury Assistant

August 18th, 2017

Treasury assistants help senior financial managers to help organizations meet their financial goals. These professionals are typically employed by large corporations and government agencies. The exact tasks of a treasury assistant may vary widely depending on the type and size of the company they are employed by. In general, they prepare written reports and statements, schedule meetings, create presentations, update protocol manuals, and handle assorted administrative work related to the company's financial matters.
A bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, business management, or a related field is the minimum requirement to get hired as a treasury assistant with an established firm. Treasury assistants must be extremely organized and have a flair for numbers and accounting. The tasks are largely clerical in nature.
At your interview, the interviewer will ask you various questions to determine whether you have what it takes for this job. Are you organized? What are your strengths as they apply to this job? What are your weaknesses and how do you intend to overcome them? Have you had any experience in this field? What tasks did you handle during that time? These are just some of the typical questions that are asked at treasury assistant interviews. You can find many more at Mock Questions.
