I worked at San Bernardino County Library part-time (More than a year)
-Help the community -Quiet and peaceful (usually) -Programs to help kids -Great if you love books -Work day is split up, do something different about every 2 hours and don't get bored -Pays mileage if you have to travel to a different branch -Accumulated sick time
-Understaffed -Long wait time for new employees from interview to hire -Long probationary period, not able to request time off during this time
Advice to Management
Give part time employees probationary period based on months not hours worked. Quickly hire for open positions, don't leave the same amount of work load for less employees to handle.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at San Bernardino County Library (Fontana, CA) in May 2010.
They take a written test first and if you pass then you get a in-person interview. They will do a background check and you must pass all drug test. Finally, you are hired!
