    Librarian Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Eastern Kentucky University.

    Interview

    Standard day and a half faculty interview with campus stakeholders & presentation. I was reimbursed for expenses, although I stayed with family in a nearby city. EKU folks ask pointed questions, and the interview process is definitely two-way. It's important to do your homework and ask questions of your interviewers. There are some really nice dining spots in Richmond.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Eastern Kentucky University (Richmond, KY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process involved submitting an application and waiting for a phone interview. After the phone interview, it was the typical on campus interview. The only issue was finding a time to meet with the committee as the interview was delayed due to weather which made finding an acceptable time difficult.

    Geek Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Eastern Kentucky University (Richmond, KY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I sat down with the manager of the program, although senior members conduct interviews on occasion. The setting was in the most casual computer lab just after lunch. While I was applying for an IT related position, the one conducting the interview was not trained in IT, so I had to do more explaining that otherwise.

    Overall, the process was not one that is worth getting nervous about, and designed to create a relaxing experience for the prospective employee.
