    I worked at City of Thousand Oaks part-time

    Pros

    The library offers great services to the community.

    Cons

    A deep lack of communication existed between management and front-line staff. It was often difficult to obtain answers regarding library policies and operations, especially because managers rarely staffed the service desks or responded to emails, and policy manuals were outdated. Part-time staff were also subjected to a regimented desk schedule (moving back and forth between various service points) during five-hour... shifts, making for a hectic, chaotic pace (for a library).

    Advice to Management

    Study other library operations to see how service may be delivered in a more holistic manner. Treat part-time staff members with more respect.

    Pros

    It has a family environment not only within the department, but throughout the city hall. Everyone works as a team to help each other and get things done.

    Cons

    Small city with low turnover in staff positions. Full time positions in public works and community development are hard to come by.

    I worked at City of Thousand Oaks part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Test people to work with, great hours, best training I ever had at a job. Rasies are yearly as well as cost of living raises.

    Cons

    no room for advancement. People stay at the same positions for 20 years. I have known many people who work an important postion for 10 or 15 years without benefites. Its tough to get benefits there as well as full time..

    Advice to Management

    YOU really should give people beenfits and more full time postions so they wouldnt have to look for work elsewhere. Other than that its a wonderfulplace to work.
