I have been working at Phoenix Public Library part-time for more than 10 years
Pros – The work environment is friendly, upbeat, casual and modern, and the schedule is pretty flexible. Many part-time positions that were previously frozen were opened for hiring, and hours have expanded to include more evenings at certain locations. More funding is now available for services and programs that were previously discontinued or not possible during the economic slump. Things are looking up!
Cons – There is a disconnect between those working with the public and some administration, but the Director at the top is making good efforts to improve the connections.
Advice to Senior Management – Make yourself visible to employees on their turf at all levels during public hours. Connect with the customers in some way. Get a clear idea of the dynamics playing out in each branch and section.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Phoenix Public Library
Pros – Very flexible with hours for students.
Working with books.
Easy work environment.
Cons – The huge hours cut for part-time employees.
Very poor benefits for p/t.
Those elusive f/t positions that people jump for and then cling on to until retirement! Not that that's a bad thing, but it makes advancing very difficult.
I always enjoyed and respected my direct supervisors and bosses but there was always some tension with those in the glass tower who seem to forget the lowly Sort staff.
Dirty books! I love books but people really need to treat books better.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
