    -Great organization to have on your Resumé
    -Not very hard work done

    Cons

    -LOW PAY!!!! 50k may be the highest and that with a Masters Degree
    -Lots a drama between co-workers
    -Does no prepare you for the real life work so you will get very comfortable and never leave the organization
    -No opportunity for overtime pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're a student looking for part-time work I would recommend working for the Library. However avoid the Performing Arts branch. Its a fantastic branch and a great look for your resumé, however, the supervisor will fire you before you know it.
