    Guest Services Admissions Representative

    Guest Services Admissions Representative (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGreat leadership - the managers and supervisors are very helpful. It's a good place to learn about non-profit organizations and staying involved with the community. They are also flexible with scheduling.

    ConsIt can get really busy, and the internal system is very slow. It'd make a huge difference to check in guests faster.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf possible, update the internal system. It'll make it easier to process and check in guests. Guests get very upset when they are waiting in line thanks to the slow system. Post more signs in line that show movie times and exhibit times.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pleasant place to work but not stay too terribly long

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDedicated co-workers, get to work at a Seattle institution, free passes to imax movies and travelling exhibits. Medical/dental/vision benefits are very generous; time off seems pretty good.

    ConsVery high turnover, expectation to volunteer to work evening and weekend special events, seems like salaries have stagnated. Not much interaction between departments, unfortunately.

    Great summer job, wonderful staff to work with

    Summer Camps Teacher (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe staff made it absolutely great to work at, everyone is really friendly. Upper management also did a great job being present. I could tell that they are really passionate about what they do and love working there.

    ConsDue to budget cuts, pay is not very high for the amount of work required, does not pay overtime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to expand summer camps too much and focus on smaller number of camps.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
