    I have been working at Memphis part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mayor Jim Strickland is a phenomenal leader and wants to move the City in the right direction. It is evident that he wants to help Memphis grow into a competitive and attractive city. He has the right people in senior leadership positions who bring fresh and new ideas. Right now there is a lot of momentum for positive growth and change.

    The managers in my division are intentional about investing in employees and helping them grow professionally. I, along with others, have been able to work our way up to full-time positions. Everyone genuinely cares about making Memphis a better place and serving its people - which is the heart of what we do and why we want to do it well.

    Cons

    There are some areas within the City that are still operating on systems that were put in place decades ago. While there has been a lot of growth since Mayor Strickland took office, there are some divisions who should take major steps toward automation, paperless systems, and more efficient processes.

    Assistant Librarian Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Memphis (Memphis, TN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied at the end of April 2017 and assumed I was passed over. In June 2917 I got a call to schedule an interview. In July I was contacted to Fingerprint, do a background check and submit a lot of paperwork to be processed. About a month later, in August, I was contacted by my local branch manager and welcomed to the Library. They really try to place you at your local branch where you live (if they can).
    My orientation will be several weeks after my first day on the job. I am learning on the job as I go, but I love working at the Library and feel I have adequate help and support and training.

    Interview Questions

    • 1). Talk about a time when / where you had to make a quick decision. Ex: think quickly to come up with a solution or solve something.

      2). Have you ever worked with youths? (high school aged kids). Please elaborate.   1 Answer
