Suggestions for improvement

  • I just think everyone should be given a more balanced workload instead of having ten people do all the work and the rest of us just sit around watching the clock. I also think communication could be a little better.

What I like about the company

I think working for a public library is an amazing job and I love seeing the impact that we have in the community. When the weather is too hot or too cold we are a place to stay warm and use free internet, when you need help looking for a job or filling out an application you can come here, if you want your kids to learn and enjoy reading then you are welcome here. The library is something that every community needs and I love being a part of it. Our city treats us very nicely and makes sure we have all the grants and funds that we need to keep the place running. They give us great benefits and I feel secure in my job. I love it.

What I dislike about the company

There are a few things that I would change if I could. First of all, there seems to be a misconception that those of us who are not managers don't need to have work to do every day so I spend a lot of time just wasting time, which I don't want to do. I would love more projects and responsibilities but none have been given to me. The other issue is that compared to other libraries of our size, we don't get paid as much as they do. I am not complaining about my income because it is more than enough to support me but I feel that the wages here are just not competitive and won't bring people in looking for a library position.
