    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at King County Library System (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Met with department head and department assistant, typing test, filing test. The interview was casual. The format has changed considerably; you now meet with a minimum of 2 people and a lot more is asked of you.

    Interview Questions

    • Show them something that I created using Excel (this was 16 years ago so Excel was a big thing). Now questions consist of how you handle situations and what sort of experience you have that could be used in the position you're interview for.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, there is a pay scale, the jobs have varying pay scales and you receive whatever the job's scale is at + your experience (i.e. you could start in the middle of the pay scale).
