Mission: The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco have rendered over a century of public service in the arts, and it is our mission to extend and enhance that service well into this century.
I worked at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)
Amazing exhibitions and programming. Ability to work with art from centuries past to contemporary artists. Community partners are always very engaged.
Leadership changes, board issues, low pay (even for non-profit), class system amongst employees (union vs non-union, curators vs everyone else).
Advice to Management
Treat everyone with respect no matter their title. Working here is a passion and not done for pay, so respect is even more important.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (New York, NY).
Very odd interview process. It's a panel and but feels more like youre in the hot seat as they go around shooting questions at you. Not a lot of room for casual conversations and little insight into what they are looking for in the role. Interviewers were rather standoffish and made the whole experience feel very military like.
