I have been working at King County Library System part-time (Less than a year)
Flexibility of volunteer work hours, variation of work projects.
parking is limited
Library staff limited
Limited computers available to the public
Need more tables and chairs for the public
Need longer hours for adults and children on saturdays
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at King County Library System (Seattle, WA).
Met with department head and department assistant, typing test, filing test. The interview was casual. The format has changed considerably; you now meet with a minimum of 2 people and a lot more is asked of you.
There was no negotiation, there is a pay scale, the jobs have varying pay scales and you receive whatever the job's scale is at + your experience (i.e. you could start in the middle of the pay scale).
