    Assistant Librarian Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Accepted Offer
    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
