interview questions shared by candidates
Do you have the technical knowledge to operate a book shop? Can you supervise employees so that they are fulfilled and the job is done? Have you the business knowledge to maintain the b-o-r-i-n-g side of the job?
In a general book shop setting, can you bring the necessary spectrum of knowledge: (a) Will you be able to engage the interest of a toddler, an eight-year-old, a teen, and their parents? The erudite and the common? Mystery or history? (b) Do you know enough about the world to satisfy every taste, within reason? (c) Are you willing, within reason, to drop any feelings or opinions that may incline you to censor the reading materials you offer - or special order if they are too offensive to live on your shelves?
