    I have been working at OCLC full-time (more than 5 years)


    Job flexibiliity: Able to move around and do different things. Work from home, flexible hours. Onsite gym, picturesque campus. Relatively up to date development environments.


    Pace is slower than most technical companies, if that is a concern to you. If it's not, I think you are in the wrong line of work. Unclear direction during transition to new management. It will get better, just may take some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at OCLC.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a recruiter who interviewed me over the phone. She then had me come in for an interview, and I met with three individuals. They discussed the company, and proceeded to ask me questions. They had me sort of walk through my resume, explaining more about my past experiences. They were very friendly, and I felt welcomed.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a previous job experience in which you had to handle a gray area in regard to policy.

      They asked some standard interview questions (i.e. strengths and weaknesses), but probably more of them were behavioral/situational questions.
