  • "Good to work for such an important institution; does have hang-ups of large non-profits sometimes"

    I have been working at New York Public Library full-time

    Pros

    It's great to work for an institution that means so much to so many people, and is such a necessary space and service provider to all New Yorkers, as well as being a major hub for research.

    Cons

    It is a large non-profit, and things can drag accordingly.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York Public Library.

    Interview

    I met with an HR person, a Branch Manager, and two librarians at the branch where the opening was. They asked a series of questions and gave me time to ask them questions. They did not give me a tour of the branch.
