    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This position was with the Public Library and I am a rehire. I applied online early March 2017, received a phone call about two weeks later to come in for a typing test I went in and was told if my speed was what they were looking for they would call back for an interview. Two more weeks passed and I was invited for an interview the second week of April, I went into the interview there was a panel of three people all of whom you will be working closely with. They were very professional and friendly, the questions consisted of being asked tell me a time when you did......... so it is best to be specific and be yourself, study the position and ask about it. I asked what type of environment would I be going into if chosen, how long each member of the panel worked for the library and what they like the most. I received a call the following Monday from a HR rep asking me to send in college transcripts and then again on Weds to go over something on my transcript that was not clear, two weeks later I received a call and a verbal offer.
