    Pros

    Great culture and phenomenal community. The tight-knit family here really helps to bond employees and create long lasting relationships that extend beyond the work hours.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything negative to say here. It'd a great place to work that values you as a human being.

    Advice to Management

    I would continue to develop the family community feel that embodies the ideals of the insituttion. It's a great place to work at these days.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Boston College (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I met with six separate people -- one in charge of hiring, those in charge of the departments I'd be working with, one of the university librarians, and an HR representative. Very detailed, emphasized the community aspect of BC. Was there for two hours and had a tour of the library at the end. They wanted to finish interviews before offering me the position, but were quick to let me know that I was one of only a few to get called in for the interview.
