    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at King County Library System (Issaquah, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Two hour interview where you meet with one interviewer for one hour. Another interviewer for another hour. They have a list of questions that ask. The first interview had a three page list of questions; The second interviewer had a shorter list and I wonder if they selected only certain questions because I did not answer the previous questions appropriately.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a project you developed or promoted and what was your process? Describe a position that a co-worker had that you didn't agree with and describe that person's point of view Describe a position or process you implemented that wasn't popular. What did you do to gain acceptance? How did you implement it? Describe a situation with an angry customer, what were the steps you took to diffuse the situation? How do you handle diversity ? There were more questions about collaboration with co-workers and describe extra projects or successful ideas that you have implemented. I feel that they were looking for an individual who contributes successfully to the team and the organization. Additionally, they are looking for a person who can work on a team . If you have many examples of both scenarios, you will do well. I thought I did but I didn't make it past this interview. I have to wait 12 months to apply again.   Answer Question
