    Current Employee - Library Assistant in Fort Myers, FL

    I have been working at Lee County Library System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Predictability, very little variety to schedule and duties, great chance to use people skills.

    Cons

    Daily job functions get routine, but colorful patrons help mix things up! County can decide to move you to another branch with no input from you, can get worrisome when changes occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutbacks always create stress, so keep checking in on employees to keep morale up.

    Library Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bonita Springs, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Bonita Springs, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lee County Library System in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The only question I was asked for the phone interview was confirming that I was aware of the salary for the position. The phone interview was conducted by the branch manager, who I believe was the person who makes the hiring decision. The interview was with a panel -- the branch manager, a library associate at the branch, and the head of reference from another branch. I knew the head of reference from our graduate school program in Library Science, but all three were very friendly. There were a few tough questions, but overall the tone was very friendly. There were no "gotcha" questions, all related to the job responsibilities. They have to write down all of the candidates responses, so that is a little off putting, and there are some awkward silences while they write. But better that -- if you keep talking they have to keep writing so it is best to keep answers appropriate length and just sit in silence.
