I worked at Texas Health and Science University full-time (More than 3 years)
Texas Health and Science University is a wonderful place to work. It is located in a pleasant suburb in South Austin within a short commuting distance from downtown. It is a small school with a big reputation. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new skills and advance your career. The students and staff are all exceptionally polite and exceedingly friendly. The library has a large well-maintained collection with a peaceful atmosphere and pleasant lighting. The management provides complementary herbal tea, occasional snacks, and discounted acupuncture treatments to the staff. We regularly celebrate with campus-wide banquets. Staff can also be eligible for discounted tuition rates. There is never a dull moment and every day delivers fresh rewards.
Due to the small staff size and the demands of operating a school, the staff is often asked to perform extraordinary tasks for the benefit of the university. Be patient and generous with your efforts and you will earn the respect of the management.
Advice to Management
I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked as the librarian of Texas Health and Science University. I hope that the library can continue to expand its services for the benefit of the campus community.
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Health and Science University in July 2016.
Prior to interview you must provide a credit check.
1st part is a short tour.
2nd part is an exam (in the library) - exam is mostly math questions. It can be worded excessively and try to confuse you. Just take a breath and eliminate the excess/garbage. A couple of open ended questions. A few multiple choices and fill in the blanks (so math has to be accurate). Then there is a computer assessment this test your Microsoft word formatting skills. You have to duplicate a form exactly and print it out for the test. Long test about 25 questions (1hr. for you want to double check your work and make sure you are accurate with your computer formats). They grade your test in front of you. I got a 100%, but I took my time!
3rd part is a pre-interview some staff members ask you what you have to offer.
4th part the president/owner interviews you.
