    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at King County Library System.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an online application I was immediately contacted to say that I would be contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview happened about 1 1/2 weeks later. It was a scripted seven question interview. I thought it went well and was notified about 2 weeks later that I had made it through to the next round which was a two hour interview and assessment. After another week or so I was offered time slots for that interview which took place at their headquarters. I met with one person and an observer. There were a lot of questions about working with different types of people and handling conflict. I was then given a scenario to think about and write some notes about. Then I met with another person and an observer. I went over the scenario and how I would handle the situation. Then there were more questions about working with different types of people and conflict. I thought I had answered most questions good to great and flubbed a few. I was notified a week or so later that I was not chosen. There is no feedback offered so I have no idea where I did not do well.

    Librarian Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at King County Library System in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a telephone interview and two face-to-face interviews. All of this was not to compete for an actual job, but for an opportunity to be put into the "pool" in case a job opened up. All in all it was quite unsatisfying, because even after three long sessions, even if you are successful, you aren't getting a job. You're given the opportunity to wait, along with 180 other poor fools.
