Featured Review

Former Employee - Front of House Staff

I worked at Brooklyn Museum part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The other FOH Staff: - The museum always managed to hire other FOH staff that made the job seem more like doing business with a small family. There was usually never a bad one in the bunch. While... some of the work may have been tedious it was always made better by close friends in the institution. The Museum : - Can't beat it!

Cons

Communication: - While I'm sure it was true of most larger institutions, communication between higher ups and FOH was subpar, at BEST. FOH staff was often left in the dark about a lot of important... aspects of the institution and its business, which left us to take all of the negative side effects. It improved over the years, but it could have definitely used some work. Full Time: - It's almost impossible to get a full time job no matter how long you've been there. Essentially, come with 5-10 years experience already under your belt or don't bother coming at all.

Advice to Management

Be nicer to your FOH staff...they're the ones who actually communicate with the visitors first-hand. They put up with a lot for practically nothing.
