Pros: customer service
Queens Library is a great non profit organization. Customer Service is key for Queens Library. Working at the Queens Library I learned organization and interpersonal skills. Co-workers are encouraging and friendly. The hardest part of the job is continuing to come of with new and innovative ideas but it is a welcoming challenge. The most enjoyable part – more... of my career are the smiles of my satisfied customers. – less

I have a part time position at the Queens Library. From the beginning I got the opportunity to learn a lot about the job and it was the most enjoyable part. Every day I'm engaged with costumers, answering questions, referring them to appropriate staff, and helping them with the automatic self-check-out and self-check-in systems. Primarily I do; Maintenance – more... of book stocks and displays. Shelving books and library materials. Helping children's librarian with codding new materials and labeling and linking new DVDs and magazines. I've had the great pleasure of working with excellent co-workers and managers so far, and it has contributed to our success serving hundreds of customers everyday. – less

Reading to children every Friday from 3pm,-4pm. Learned how to cooperate with smaller children. Co-workers were very helpful with anything misunderstood. Hardest part of job was keeping patience. Most enjoyable part was to see the children's reading level's rise.

-A typical day at work is full of books to be shelved by a certain time. Cleaning up the books on the floor, left on tables, left on chairs, etc. Assisting customers when they cannot find something. -I learned that patience is a virtue. -Management is helpful. -My co-workers are simply just that: Co-workers. We all just try to get our work done. Do – more... not really associate much. -The hardest part of the job is organizing because children always pull out the books. -The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the children smile as you find them the book they were looking for. – less
