    I worked at OCLC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you care about the future of libraries and want to help sustain their mission to serve communities by delivering top notch services, then OCLC is the place for you. Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Culture change, while necessary, the implementation is uneven. Employees need clearer picture of business and where the company is heading.

    Advice to Management

    Culture change implementation is uneven. Employees need clearer picture of business and where the company is heading. Clarify business strategy then clearer communicate to employees. More open communication. Treat employees as you would like to and expect to be treated

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at OCLC.

    Interview

    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
