    Former Employee - Historical Presenter in Dearborn, MI

    I worked at The Henry Ford part-time (more than a year)


    The atmosphere, the work, and the people are all reasons to work there. You really get the sense that the museum and village are run by a group a highly intelligent, caring people, who wish to preserve history and educate both the employees and the visitors.


    Part-time historic presenters only make minimum wage. It is a great job for a student or retiree looking for a very enjoyable 3-4 day work week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you're running a non-profit, but the employees would certainly appreciate a raise in pay.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation phase, I am grateful for the entry-level RN employment opportunity especially, in this economy (I had been looking for awhile for a RN position). However, with that being said as my experience expands I would expect this employer to fairly increase my payrate.
