    I have been working at The Museum of Science and Industry part-time (More than a year)


    This is the largest Science museum on the Western Hemisphere so there are thousands of people you get to interact with daily. It is interactive oppose to stop read and go like other museums so the excitement and activity from the guest is contagious.


    There aren't many cons for this job. If you work in the Group Center with the field trips then be prepared to work outside in all types of weather.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management does a great job on keeping up with the needs and morale of the team. Management addresses their employers first when its time to change or fix something withing its department.

    Facilitator I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago, IL).


    The hiring process was a delightful blend of modern technology and participatory group interviews. To begin, I applied with my resume via the website. Thankfully I didn't have to hound them for a followup because HR contacted me in the next few days by phone. This began stage two, where I collaborated via email to pick an interview date (usually monthly around the 5th). On that day, I showed up, filled out a general application with around 14 other people, and we chit chatted until it was time to move on to the group interview. This was practically a show put on by a few team managers and their superior guest services manager. The overview of the job and it's nature involved participatory questioning that allowed the interviewees to voice their opinions or understandings of the guest engagement policy/philosophy at MSI. The key here is engagement that inspires the inventive genius in everyone. Bonus points for knowing mission and vision statements. The last bit of the interview involved each interviewee hosting a one minute improv demonstration of some random contraption. Points go for making the presentation engaging, not so much for knowledge of physics principles and such.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult aspect was by far the improv presentation. We each had our pick of random baggies, and within each baggie was an item that bounced, lit up, twirled, sprung, or had some other physical sciencey thing occur. Our mission was to present this object to the whole group, engage the group through questions and/or physical interaction, and leave them with some degree of inspiration.   1 Answer


    My availability didn't work for the guest services team that was looking to hire from that interview. However, not a couple weeks passed before another guest services team needed a new hire and they simply looked at the notes from my group interview date and gave me a call.
