    I worked at Denver Museum of Nature & Science full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great place to work with great benifits. Made many great connections. Learned more in a few years @ DMNS then I did in 4-5 years of college.

    Cons

    After a few employees 'left', the family feeling began to feel broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees. Share your vision with your team. Stop the hostile takeover approach to achieving goals/vision.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

    Interview Details

    The funnest interview I've ever had! I think there was an initial phone interview to assess if I was interested in the job for what they were paying followed by a group interview with 3 employees: my future supervisor and two people whose jobs were similar to the one I was applying for in various aspects. In addition to the usual set of questions there were two practical portions of the interview. First I was presented with a set of expense reports and asked how I would organize them into a spreadsheet for grant tracking purposes. Then one of the interviewers left the room and called in on the phone so I could pretend she was a teacher calling to make a school program reservation and they could assess my customer service skills. At the very end, because the position was bilingual preferred, they briefly introduced me to one of the Spanish-speaking educators on staff so we could chat a few minutes and she could assess my level of fluency.

    • Hmm...I don't recall any ringers. Questions seemed to be pretty standard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Definitely negotiate starting salary as annual merit increases are not large. Anticipate 2-4 weeks after the offer before you are actually working as the background check and drug test take considerable time and you can only start on the 1st or 16th of the month.
