Suggestions for improvement
- The City of Broomfield needs to start adequately compensating employees. They need to stop running the library on part-time, non-professional help. The need to promote employees with advanced degrees in part-time, non-professional positions to professional, full-time positions.
I like about the employer
They offer a regular paycheck.
I dislike about the employer
Promotions are non-existent. Raises are poor for the front line workers. Almost the entire staff is part-time. The very few full-time employees are compensated well and treated well. The City of Broomfield likes to tout an idea called "the Broomfield Way," i.e., going above and beyond what is expected to deliver exceptional customer service. However, when it comes time to compensate said employees, we are averaged with all other non-Broomfield workers who are not expected to provide "the Broomfield Way."
People with advanced degrees (Masters in Library Science) used to be hired in to non-professional positions. No mobility in these positions. When these people complained about this, the library no longer hired those with advanced degrees. Now we have people working in reference positions who do not have the proper skills.
The management engages in unfair hiring an promotion practices for full-time employees.
City policy dictates that anyone who works for the City should be at the halfway point of their salary range after 7 years. I'm still closer to the bottom of the pay range than I am to the middle.
