    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Aquarium.

    Interview

    I was applying from across the country, so all interviews were over the phone. An offer was extended without an in person interview. This led to some unrealistic expectations on both sides.

    Visitor Program Interpretive Aide Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Aquarium in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was a three hour long group interview (20 candidates in total for 4 openings) with about 5 staff members at any given time. It all felt very rushed and super competitive. It was hard to get noticed despite experience and a masters degree in biology education. Lots of group presentations and role playing activities. At the end of it I was completely drained.

    Herpetology Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Aquarium (Baltimore, MD) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I chose online the specific intern positions I was interested in. I only heard back from the herpetology department, although I also applied to the animal care unit. The interview was just a casual fifteen to twenty minutes on the phone. I believe I may have also had to answer a few questions for the online application, as well as get approval from my university to earn credit. This was for an internship experience, though, not for a full-time paid job.
