    Great internship, nice coworkers. Treated me with respect which people don't usually give teenagers.

    Good hours, break room, clean bathrooms.


    Not a guaranteed position, no other job offers once internship ended.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at New York Public Library.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview by the woman who would become by manager and then a few days later I received a call from HR saying that I was hired.

    The Interview process was fairly laid-back. I didn't feel as if the interviewer was trying to trip me up. She presented the requirements and description of the position with good detail and answered any questions I had. It was a positive experience.
