    Education Fellow Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Concord, NH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later they emailed me and asked to set up a phone screen. The phone screen was about a week later and was short (maybe 5 minutes) and the interviewer did most of the talking. I didn't get an offer but it was a good experience overall.

    Education Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied in July, got an email from HR about interest at the end of August. Had brief phone call with the HR Rep the next week (they did most of the talking), and then scheduled an interview over Skype for mid-September. For the interview, I had to make a presentation of teaching skills. The interview started with a 1:1 with a hiring manager, then a panel interview in which I presented my teaching skills, and then they asked me specific questions (both about presentation and situational). Everyone was really nice, and even though I wasn't offered the job it was a positive experience.

    Interview Questions

    • What STEM subjects do you consider yourself to be strong in, and which subjects (if any) are you weak in?   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online I received an email asking to have a phone interview the following week. The phone interview asked basic questions if I could commit to the schedule and agreed to the salary. The next day I received another email asking to come in the next week for an interview with a few people. The first interview was with HR who I had spoken with on the phone, lasted about 30 minutes, basic questions on why I wanted the job and how I was a right match. Second interview was with the Supervisor and Manager of the department I would be working with. Very comfortable and easy to talk to people who asked more in depth questions based on work background and what I would be capable of doing. This lasted about an hour and then got a tour of the facility. Great experience overall even though I was not offered the position.

    Staff Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    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 3 weeks. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initially I received a phone interview a week or so after applying online and the phone interview was pretty generic, asking if I had experience with Microsoft Office. Then, I scheduled for an in-person interview with the Annual Fund Director (as well as the Washburn Challenge heads).

    Visitor Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Museum of Science (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was brief and mainly went over customer service background. They asked a few questions to get an idea how you would deal with the extremely busy days and then tried to get a feel for who you were as a person. During the interview process they are very engaging and kind and definitely want you to feel comfortable. They also don't try to hide how extremely busy the Museum is to make sure you are definitely someone who can handle and wants a position where you have to deal with more people than you can remember everyday.
