    Former Employee - Science Interpreter II in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Pacific Science Center part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn new things, interacting with people who are happy to be there, amazing and brilliant coworkers, some of the best mid-level managers I have had

    Cons

    Limited to no opportunities for advancement in pay, lack of transparency and communication between upper leadership and frontline staff, staff worked the maximum number of hours per week to avoid paying benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I often heard leadership say that the frontline staff were the most valuable asset to the museum, but I never saw that reflected in pay, regardless of how long a person worked there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Pacific Science Center in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Group interview consisting of role-playing and small group discussion. Role-playing included cashiering transactions with fake money following a list of prices. Being able to do math in your head will help. There is also a lot of movement around the room, so dress appropriately. Most of the other people at the interview were very young. You will be asked at the end to write down who of the others in the group you would hire.
