Search Jobs

Hello, I'm Karin.

Ask me about:

"I prepare the library for opening -- balancing cash transmittals, unlocking doors, turning off alarms, logging on computers, making sure our schedule is covered for the day. I'm in charge of 13 employees. I meet with each employee at least once a month to discuss any concerns or questions they have about their jobs. I also do hiring and performance reviews."


"When I first started at Sno-Isle, I had small children at home and only wanted to work part time. Sno-Isle was very attractive to me, especially because employees working at least 20 hours/week are eligible for benefits. To me, that's amazing! And the benefits are great, especially the vacation and sick-leave. "


"I've encouraged several people to apply, and I tell them all the same thing: 'Sno-Isle is a great place to work. They take care of their people. The benefits are great. The training is phenomenal. And the day goes by so quickly because there is so much multitasking and variety. You're never bored.'"


"One of the things that makes Sno-Isle stand out, is that the employees have great work ethic. They come to work happy. I think you need that attitude to fit in here. And you must be customer service orientated and able to work with diverse customers of all ages. It helps to be a good multitasker, too."


"I am currently reading The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones. This is the first book selection for the new "Foodies Book Club" at the Mountlake Terrace Library. While I have just begun reading the book I am already hooked by the feast of gastronomical descriptions of Chinese cuisine in the book."
