    I worked at Fairfax County Virginia as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing people who are driven and work oriented and a great transition into the working world. I worked in a small office and everyone played a substantial role in developing partnerships for local non-profits.

    Cons

    My biggest con was the fact that I was only able to work 25 hour weeks and I would have liked full time employment if that had been a possibility, however funding was minimal and that is the way it turned out.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fairfax County Virginia.

    Interview Details

    FCPL's system was a mess. They forward applications with little rhyme or reason. Once you're sent along it's hit or miss whether you'll be called for a position. They've stopped interviewing at the branch level and have started interviewing through Admin and placing people wherever they feel like without determining where they would be the best fit. This behooves no one and causes resentment throughout the county. The people doing the hiring have not had to work in a branch for many years. You may or may not be kept in a pool of applicants for a later date. Interviews are always done by a panel (two or more people asking questions and taking notes).
