    Former Employee - Library Technical Assistant in Seattle, WA

    I worked at King County Library System part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The staff I worked with were understanding and supportive of each other. My supervisor was amazing and very accommodating with scheduling and vacation requests. Yearly raises to keep up with cost of living were nice.

    Cons

    May have to work late as well as weekends. Very difficult to get full-time 40 hour positions. May have to deal with very rude and unreasonable patrons.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at King County Library System.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an online application I was immediately contacted to say that I would be contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview happened about 1 1/2 weeks later. It was a scripted seven question interview. I thought it went well and was notified about 2 weeks later that I had made it through to the next round which was a two hour interview and assessment. After another week or so I was offered time slots for that interview which took place at their headquarters. I met with one person and an observer. There were a lot of questions about working with different types of people and handling conflict. I was then given a scenario to think about and write some notes about. Then I met with another person and an observer. I went over the scenario and how I would handle the situation. Then there were more questions about working with different types of people and conflict. I thought I had answered most questions good to great and flubbed a few. I was notified a week or so later that I was not chosen. There is no feedback offered so I have no idea where I did not do well.
