I worked at King County Library System part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Paid vacation and sick leave for part time staff, regular schedule and public salary information.

This was a great high school job, I wish I could have kept it in college.

Cons

A lot of staff was unhappy and primarily female employees led to some office politics. While I was there, they changed the process for subbing which was unfortunate because I couldn't get hours over the summer like I used to and it would've been nice to still be able to sub after graduation.

    I have been working at King County Library System

    Pros

    The staff is incredibly positive, supportive, & appreciative to me as a volunteer. The atmosphere is upbeat & helpful to patrons, even when the library is very busy.

    Cons

    Would like to see volunteers considered first for those job openings of an identical or similar nature to the duties they are already performing within the system as library volunteers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at King County Library System part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The staff I worked with were understanding and supportive of each other. My supervisor was amazing and very accommodating with scheduling and vacation requests. Yearly raises to keep up with cost of living were nice.

    Cons

    May have to work late as well as weekends. Very difficult to get full-time 40 hour positions. May have to deal with very rude and unreasonable patrons.
