    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Pacific Science Center in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    They posted on their own site, which you sign up for, then you post a resume, fill out the online application & then wait. I got a email reply for 1-on-2 interview with the 2 managers. There was suppose to be a group interview but I was not able to attend, hence the private interview. The managers are friendly & knew that this was seasonal & wanted to make sure that everyone knew this. Easy process.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed almost immediately after submitting an application online to schedule a group interview. Lead teachers and assistant teachers were all being interviewed at the same time with around 15 people per group. We were asked many behavior and "what if" or "what would you do" type questions. Then we were given an example of a lesson plan and had to prepare a lesson and give it in front of the group.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pacific Science Center in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Extensive phone screening with HR. In person interview with Executive Director and entire accounting staff plus a couple of peers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pacific Science Center in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    You can apply on-line for any position. I was contacted initially by email, followed up by a phone confirmation by the H.R. supervisor. My first contact face to face was with the Human Resource Department Head, who also present at my initial interview. My second interview was with my soon to be direct supervisor. Both people were very engaged in the process, listening and contributing to the conversation. Employee orientation was in a small group and also on a very personal level.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were about how I would solve different kinds of interpersonal problems. Since almost all of the job involves contact with the general public, I was asked how I would respond to various situations involving the public.   View Answer
