    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email around 2-3 weeks after I initially applied asking for an interview. A few days later I had a phone interview with a woman from HR. She was very thorough on what my day to day work schedule would be like, how long the on boarding process would take and what kind of work life balance the museum provided its employees. She answered all the questions I asked and had a genuine conversation with me about why I wanted to work at the museum, my degree and how I came about applying at the museum of science.

    After the phone interview with HR I was asked to interview with the team manager and was offered a Skype interview since I was from out of state but decided to travel into Boston instead to meet face to face. I was offered free tickets to the museum for myself and a guest and free parking so that we could roam the museum after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process involved a brief phone interview with HR, a phone interview (30 min) with the team I'd be working with, an in-person interview with the same team (1 hr). The time from when I sent my resume to my first day was 1 month.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't anything that caught me way off guard. I suppose the hardest would be how I handle problems with co-workers.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was called and offered the job over the phone and was given time to think about it. I accepted the offer without further negotiations as I had already said what my salary requirements were and the offer was in that range.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very nice, asked relevant questions, and seemed very excited about the Museum's mission. I was put at ease and enjoyed the process. It did, however take several weeks to receive a reply from the interview. As this was a credit-eligible internship position, it was important to hear back quickly. The delay did cause some difficulties, but the overall process was pleasant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Museum of Science.

    Interview

    I was contacted by e-mail for a phone interview a month after submitting my application. The interviewer blew off our first appointment (as in simply never called or notified me). I received an e-mail a few days later, letting me know when my new appointment was (without asking if the time worked for me or offering an explanation why my first appointment had been neglected). We spoke briefly (three minutes), in which I was offered a recap of the position and told what it paid. I chose not to move forward after that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed four different times. First with Human resources, then a one on one with the department manager, next with 3 colleagues, and lastly with the vendor I would have close contact with. It was a good process in which they filled me in on who I would be meeting next. Many of them asked the same simple questions, so I felt quite over prepared.
