Pros: access to library material
Cons: no benefits, temporary part time
On a typical day at work, we check in library material that was returned or delivered to our department, restock the items or address items with irregularities. We assist the public with library card registration, checking out items, using the computers, and information.
I've learned many useful customer service tools and techniques, computer related skills, organizational and professional skills, library policies and regular library duties associated with my position.
The management is fair and easily accessible for assistance.
My co-workers are friendly, helpful and great team members.
The hardest part of the job can be balancing workload and customer assistance, when both are in high demand.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of helping a customer to the best of my ability and completing a project/workload. It's also enjoyable to see all of the diverse material that is in the library while working.
