No benefits, no security, no boundaries
Student Employee (Former Employee), West Palm Beach, FLApril 2, 2014
Pros: clean bathrooms in the staff break room, books to read, ancestry.com library edition access
Cons: no benefits, bugs, disrespectful coworkers, little hygiene, no sense of security, too much free time, mindless tasks, harassment without action, worker's compensation
Working at the library in Palm Beach County was a 2 year nightmare. The first month there, I was stalked for over a month and though it was obvious the stalker was harassing me, the staff members never took action until the man approached the front desk with a basket of chocolate. Lots of meth users like to come to the library as well to use the computers – more... and hang out in the back of the book shelves. The staff was very careless and disrespectful to the younger staff members. There are roaches and ants crawling EVERYWHERE, including the staff areas. If you are also working on shelves to organize and file, the areas probably haven't been dusted in over a decade; allergy sensitive people BEWARE!
I also tore a ligament in my ankle when I had passed out near one of the book shelves. No one found me and I woke up on my own a half hour later; worker's compensation did not take my claim and my coworkers in my department treated me worse than before the incident.
Point short: weird people come in, mean people work there, the results are not very good. Never work at the main library in PBC. I don't know how the other branches are, but the main branch is absolutely terrible. – less

Productive and a very good work enviroment
Volunteer (Current Employee), Moreno Valley, CAMarch 16, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: short breaks
The people were very friendly, and excited about their job. It was a learning experience on how to do your job and interact with customers at the same time. I like how you could have a flexible schedule to work around my practice and school schedule. The only down side is you had very short breaks while on the job.

Fun and creative workspace with a puppet theater
Library Assistant (Former Employee), Stockton, CAJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: entertaining, snacks were provided
When I worked at the library, my friend and I organized books and helped the kids read and do homework. My favorite part was putting on little puppet shows for the kids, because it was not only fun for us but enjoyable for the kids. We all got a good laugh out of it! At the end of the puppet show we would color and do crafts with them and got to know – more... them a little more which they loved! – less

Productive and very busy at times.
Tutor (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJanuary 11, 2014
I have developed quite some patience while working in the library. I had students who procrastinated and/or forgot about deadlines - and there I was trying to do everything in the last minute. Well, that part was the best - Think fast; work fast. There obviously was a down time - it's a library :) Good environment.

A large and over crowded elementary school with a beautiful library
School Media Specialist (Former Employee), Sachem Central School Disttrict, Holbrook, NYJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: beautiful library and school enviornment; motivated teachers; good salary
Cons: overwhelming amount of work for one person, teachers refused any attempts to collaborate on research projects.
The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching the children in grades K-5 all the basics about technology (computer skills in research) and inspire the love of reading (ebook or printed books).
The worst part of the job was not having the support from the principal of the school which made my job very difficult.

Pros: very stabel

Working at a library is great but you get no real life experience. It is the same thing every day and I want to be a writer. But it is by far a great job.

Owner/Manger (Former Employee), Columbia, SCSeptember 26, 2013
Pros: totally flexible schedule
Cons: computer technology took over the business
This is a company (and novel idea) I launched myself. In the first week I obtained two clients; three years later I had over 200. I maintained the professional libraries for CPA's and lawyers. I trained myself how to do the work, crated my own marketing scheme, did my own advertising, and cold-called every single client.
