    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Library of Congress full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you get to work with the collections, it was a very surreal experience. The jobs are a little repetitive, but some people like that rhythm.

    Cons

    It's sometimes hard to get things going. Its still a library and things move slow.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just focus on these day to day tasks, but have some direction to improve the tasks at hand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Library of Congress.

    Interview

    Structured interview. Very nice panel. Very detailed questions. As the posting itself was vague as to the duties of the position, some of the questions were unexpected. They explained the expectations of the position (sort of) at the end.
