Library Services Assistant, Cincinnati, OH - June 21, 2016
Worked here for several years and moved up the ranks to a Library Services Assistant position. It's very easy to move positions from part time job to part time job or full time job to full time job. However, if you want to switch from part time to full time, be ready to wait a long time, if you get an interview at all. It was not uncommon for people who worked at the library and loved their job to end up leaving because they got tired of waiting for a full time position. The director likes to inflate circulation numbers while cutting costs at the expense of the employees, whether through benefits or converting full time positions to multiple part time positions. Administration does not want to add full time positions, despite that it makes the library as a whole look less informed because there are more new people to train. Despite that, the job itself is a lot of fun, really rewarding, and the people you work with are typically very friendly and helpful. The sick time and PTO are impossible to beat at any other job, although they try to guilt you for actually using your sick time.
