Summer Reading Clerk

June - August 2019 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

I liked that it was set hours throughout the day. When I left work I didn't have to be worried about it at home. I also liked that it was a shared job between two people. This made the position really interesting to me as a college student, because it felt like I was still able to participate in summer break.

What I wish was different

Related to my personal experience with the job: I also participated in another job for a couple of weeks and that made it more stressful for me. So I wish I had just done the one job and stuck to it. Related to the actual job: There are lulls throughout the summer because you cannot predict whether patrons will come every day or not. So I was able to read a lot on my downtime, which I loved, but I was also worried about getting up because if I did a patron would need assistance.
