Great experience, good training opportunities, decent pay

Technical Services Associate (Current Employee) Columbus, OH

ProsI enjoyed the many training opportunities that CML has available to their employees. They have training/seminars in things like diversity, dealing with/education on poverty, equality, security awareness as well as others. The environment that I worked in was very nice. I worked at the operations center in the technical services department and its a small group of people (15-20) that you see on a daily basis and at the operations center you don't deal with the public at all. The nature of the work was ok, very "assembly line" ish. I constantly reminded myself that i was responsible for every item received and processed by the columbus metropolitan library and it at least gave me somewhat of a sense of importance, it helped a bit. Management is very approachable and generally kind, remember these people have a career with the library. Benefits available to me, as a part-timer, were great. health benefits, PTO, sick days, OPERS (retirement program) etc.

ConsThere is not one con I can really think of besides the pay being very average. No job was paid too much or too little, but coupled with the available benefits (govt job) makes the con very minimal in impact. One other thing is I felt somewhat stuck in my position. There wasn't really any opportunity to move up to a supervisory role within my department. For that reason, along with the pay and a great interest in another position i am soon leaving CML.
