    I worked at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing exhibitions and programming. Ability to work with art from centuries past to contemporary artists. Community partners are always very engaged.

    Cons

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.
