Interview Questions

So at my library we interview in teams. I have already been on one interview team for my department and was recently asked to sit in on another. I thought I would post some sample questions from the interview. Oh, the department was Children's.

Sample Questions:

Summer Reading is a large part of our year. From the months of May, June, and July we are very busy. Since this is a crucial time for our department, vacation time during these months is limited. Does this present a problem?

What experience do you have working with children?

The children's department has several animals that we care for. Do you have a problem caring and cleaning up for the animals?

The Children's department can become quite chaotic place sometimes, would you able to work in this environment?

We have a set of policies and procedures that are strictly enforced, even if they are not always popular. Do you feel comfortable enough enforcing policies?

Some generic questions were asked, like "Tell us a little bit about yourself" and "Do you have any library experience?"

Hope this helps anyone on their interviews
