    I worked at Fairfax County Virginia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, many of top directors are very smart and care about their work and citizens, Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Like any government, some bureaucratic laziness and some people didn't care about their job; The pay was low compared to many other jobs, but the work was very compelling and intellectual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and pay more so people will stay longer. Get rid of the employees that don't work. Many people would be willing to work a little more.

    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).
