    I worked at Pacific Science Center part-time

    Pros

    Low-pressure, rewarding, fun job with good people who want to help you grow that is designed to be easy for a high school schedule to maintain.

    Cons

    If you're a teen and you need a job for money quickly, the volunteer-to-hire model might not be what you need. But if you have no experience, that volunteering might be what you have to do anyway.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Within a few days of submitting my application I was contacted about setting up an in person interview. The interview was about an hour and located at the pacific science center. I interviewed with the current guest service manager and guest service director. It was a very smooth process up until now. I was told I would receive notification either way. I have still not heard whether I have been moved on or not. I will be contacting shortly to figure out the details. Other than this small hiccup it has been a great experience.
