I have been working at King County Library System part-time (More than 10 years)
Great pay, great customer service, great benefits, flexible hours.
Under staffed a lot of times, deal with many different personalities with staff and the public.
Advice to Management
Be ready available when we have questions or problems.
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).
