  1. Library Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    Panel interview with generic questions, fairly straightforward process involving multiple levels of managers (immediate report and above). Nothing much to say beyond that since the questions and format of these interviews is pretty similar for assistant positions across libraries.

    I don't remember the specific questions, nothing unusual for the field
