Support from Management

Most supervisors lacked leadership skills and frequently did not treat all employees fairly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Employees, not managers or administrators, should be allowed to spend a week working in a county library or libraries in other cities to exchange creative ideas.

I dislike about the employer

There is limited flexibility in the work hours. Also, most employees are dissatisfied with the forced Sunday hours.
Safety is a serious concern. DCPL is the only DC government agency that does not provide security at each building. Employees often do not feel respected, therefore, employees leave after a brief period of time on the job. An in-depth Managers training program lasting at least one year should also be implemented. New managers should be in a probationary status for one year. If their performance is unsatisfactory they should be returned to their former position.
