    I worked at San Jose Public Library part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meeting new people and collaborating with them.

    Cons

    Even though it was a short term before the library closed, I gained a lot of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The library is a best place to start volunteering!

    I have been working at San Jose Public Library full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    san jose public library has a lot of things going for it. new facilities, good staff and an appreciative customer base.

    Cons

    upward mobility is not good. administration has become very opaque. city politicos use the library as a tool and do not fund it as it should be funded.

    I worked at San Jose Public Library

    Pros

    Decent Pay compared to similar part time jobs. While working you have time to yourself, aren't that busy and can just relax with music.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management was frustrating. Schedule would change without being informed of the changes and then being told you missed a day that you were never schedule for was very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inform people of Scheduling changes before they happen. If someone works on Thursday and next day they are scheduled for is Monday but the schedule is changed on Friday and they aren't told, they are going to have a tough time making it in on Sunday if no one calls them.
