    Librarian Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at San Antonio (San Antonio, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Every interview I did with SAPL was a panel style interview with 3-4 managers interviewing one candidate. It was a series of 10 or so questions. Expect to spend about an hour for the interview. Every question was a scenario type question that began with, "Tell about a time when you..." and you were expected to give examples from your work experience. I personally never did well with this style of interview because I found it difficult to think of specific examples from my work history "on the spot" and to articulate a good answer. Be aware that the hiring process for the City of SA is long and complex and takes a very long time (sometimes 6+ months from the time you apply to the time you interview to the time you hear the result of your interview) so hopefully you aren't in a hurry to get a job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell about a time when you disagreed with your manager and how you handled it. Tell about the professional accomplishment you are most proud of. Tell about a time when you had to give difficult news to an employee you supervised.   Answer Question
