    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I responded to an online posting for this position. They contacted me to set up a phone interview. I had the phone interview which was about 20 minutes long. The questions were not really job-specific--they were more focused on my approach to tackling difficult tasks; participating as a team member; and working independently.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Lone Star College.

    Interview Details

    Very quick. Good clear guidelines. Strong sense of team values exuded interview. Overall it was a good feel and everyone seemed genuinely interested in my opinion. It was a bit intimidating, however, to be meeting with upper management on the call back interview. Still, I was made comfortable and felt they were genuinely concerned with my ability to perform the job, not something arbitrary or superfluous to the job.

    SOAR Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lone Star College.

    Interview Details

    You first apply online and send letters of recommendation, then get an email if they request an interview. Once there, 3 people take turns to ask basic interview questions. Other people got different questions but I saw their question bank so just be prepared by googling basic interview questionnaires. Then they email you if you got it or not.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were too difficult, just basic interview questions like "What's your weakness? How do you work under pressure, what is one thing you would change about the college? What is something you would want students to know about Lone Star?"
      Be honest because they are easy going and really get to know you once you start working there.

    Instructional Technologist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Lone Star College in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by one of the managers about the position via email first. We arranged to speak by phone the next week. When she called me for the phone interview, she had an entire panel of people in the room, some were faculty members and some were other IT staff in addition to herself. She didn't tell me in advance that this would be the case. Her not telling me made the interview process more nerve wrecking. None of the people on the phone made any effort to be friendly. The whole process was very cold and impersonal, which made it extremely difficult for me to "sell myself." At the end of the twenty minute time frame, she just said they would let me know next steps the next week. She abruptly ended the call without asking me if I had any questions! I pretty much knew I wasn't going to hear back from them after that and I haven't since the call. I don't think they were really interested in me to begin with, being that I'm an out of state candidate. They were just going through the motions, but it sure was a waste of my time and theirs.

    Part-Time Librarian Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Woodlands, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lone Star College in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I initially received a phone call to schedule a phone interview. The receptionist was very friendly and personable. My call was scheduled for an afternoon. The call took between 30-45 minutes. It was a conference call with three of the librarians, and they were all easy to talk to. I was called the next day to schedule a face-to-face interview a week later. The face-to-face interview was pleasant; it was 4 of the staff, including 3 librarians and the director of the library. The questions were typical interview questions. The interview panel seemed like they would have been great to work for, and I could tell they enjoy their work. I received a contingent offer for the position the next morning from the director of the library.

    Interview Questions
    • While I felt none of the questions were too difficult for me to answer, I can share a couple: A patron is not able to print from their computer in the computer lab; how would you address this issue?   View Answer
    • How would you handle bibliographic instruction for a course?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I really wish I could have taken the position, but after making the drive out for the face-to-face interview I realized it was just too far of a drive for me -- 40 miles one way -- for a part-time position. I explained in my response why I was unable to take the position, and that if I was closer I would have happily accepted their offer. The director was appreciative of my honesty and wished me luck in my pursuits. If only transporters existed!
