    I worked at Exploratorium part-time (more than an year)


    Pay is above minimum wage
    Amazing people
    Amazing museum and learning space
    Wonderful team to be a part of
    Procedure in place that made it easy to work in different positions


    Full time was considered 32.5 hours and could be distributed over 5 days
    They hired WAY too many people in anticipation for their move and subsequently people's hours were cut. They seem to have this figured out now.
    When it was slow, they day dragged on

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    High School Explainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Exploratorium in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    First you call on a certain day to get an interview. Suggested that you call early as possible and most likely during your school hours. It's first come first served for about 60 interview spots. You interview with two current explainers and then 1:1 with a supervisor. Simple questions such as what you are interested in at school, how you heard about the job, how you whould discribe yourself, what you think it the job is. No question is wrong. It's really more of a judge of your personality. If you make a good impression on the Explainer then you have a good chance of being hired.
