Teen Summer Programs Thank You!

Teen Summer Programs Thank You!

When I got my job here at Glendale Public Library, the turn-around time from the date of my second interview to my start date was very quick.  My interview was on April 19 and my first day was May 16.  Less than a month – which in Civil Service time is lightning fast considering my … Continue reading
