    Pros

    * It's a very easy, laid back job. With good shifts, there isn't too much of a bustle, and you can also choose to work with a reference librarian
    * It's nice when you can help visitors and see them smile!

    Cons

    * People sometimes expect you to be a printer technician when really you're role is to handle questions about the library...on the other hand, you DO become amazing a fixing most printer problems since you'll be seeing a lot
    * You realize how many staplers people steal in a day....

    Advice to Management

    Management is great! It would be nice if some of the resources were updated and if there could be a tighter and stricter set of consequences for when people consistently don't show up to their shifts because it causes problems for other employees but there's really no major issue.

    I worked at Dartmouth

    Pros

    Dartmouth is a great place to work because the people are very friendly and dedicated to doing a great job.

    Cons

    I was a student employee so I am not sure how applicable this would be to full-time employees but I can't think of a single con.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing the great job you have always done as the managers I had always gave me enough space to work but support whenever I needed it.

    Pros

    flexible hours, access to facilities in Thayer School including the machine shop and the instrument room. Good place to hang out on a warm day.

    Cons

    Can have very long hours for minimal pay. Always cold. Not the most supporting advisers: they tend to be very critical of work without consideration of how old their instraments are

    Advice to Management

    buy new equipement
