City of mobile Public Library experience report

  • 14.Mar 2019
  • Employee

Communication among employees/management has been a problem. Lots of positive changes to better meet needs of customers

4.22

Company Culture

Always room for improvement but I think overall the culture is great

Office / Work Environment

Not enough workspace

Challenging Work

Working with the public can be a challenge. Especially with the variety of people who use the library

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would actually listen to the employees who are on the "frontlines" who are in direct contact with the public. Listen to their suggestions. Challenge them to come up with their own programming ideas for the public

What I like about the company

We strive for excellent customer service. With good management, employees feel valued and tend to do better than average work. We are constantly updating our available resources based on community needs. We offer free classes to the public. I feel that the library is striving to stay relevant. To entertain, inform and connect communities.

What I dislike about the company

The use of a personnel board for hiring has its benefits, but it ends up taking forever to hire people and then it is difficult to get rid of "dead" weight. We certainly have some people who need to retire or people who are not working to the level of others.
