    Assistant Librarian Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sam Houston State (Huntsville, TX).

    Interview

    This interview occurred at the main Huntsville, Texas campus. Interview was okay. Classism definitely occurs here, between those who have higher degrees than others. Work experience does not count - only your degree does. It is a nice campus with a lot of history - very hilly though. You will definitely get in shape walking up those hills!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sam Houston State (Huntsville, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    At first someone called me to schedule the interview. They had multiple slots open so that was nice. When I went to the interview I just talked to three people in a small office. They told me their names but didn't exactly tell me what they did in the office. They asked me some questions that they said they legally have to ask everyone. It was pretty easy. One of the people in the office never said anything the whole time. That was a little weird. And we were really cramped in that office so it was kind of hot. I never got a call back.
