      Great work environment with a policy to build up skills and experience. Each individuals work matters.

      Growth opportunities are limited, as it is a not for profit. Therefore the hiring procedure is not a department decision, rather need to be requested from higher powers.

      Great position for student

      Oct 7, 2020 - Student Library Assistant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The position is super flexible, so it can be easily fit into any schedule. And the work environment is very friendly. If you want to be a librarian, this is a great learning experiment, if you have other goals, this provides a great income source and networking opportunity.

      Cons

      The work is quite routine, not much to learn.
