I have been working at Aperture Foundation/Burden Gallery full-time (More than a year)
Aperture is a thought-leader in the world of photography, and the staff here are all passionate about it. It's a stimulating place to work if you love art and photography, and there's a strong sense of community.
As a non-profit with a small staff, there are always financial concerns, and issues with organization that need to be worked out, which puts a lot of pressure on team members to meet goals. Be prepared to be self-sufficient in a fast-paced work environment (not necessarily a bad thing).
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aperture Foundation/Burden Gallery (New York, NY).
Simple interview process; I was in college and they asked about what I was studying and my previous communications and photography experience. There was an online component as well, which involved writing short essays. I had a connection and I think they gave me a leg up in the whole process, as these things usually go.
