I worked at Bonhams part-time
Exposure to knowledgeable, talented professionals and really incredible pieces.
Very low pay, cutthroat, preview workers often looked down on/overworked
Advice to Management
Make your pay competitive with Sotheby's and Christies for the preview worker program!
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bonhams (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.
Very informative and engaging discussion with the Director of Advertising. Lasted about 45 minutes to an hour. Conversational, talked some about the scope of collectibles they buy and sell, how my experience applied to their needs and touched on the pay and benefits (lowish pay but good benefits).
