    I have been working at Pacific Science Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    clear expectations, very fun to spend time in the exhibits (free membership and guest passes while you're an employee!)

    Cons

    Commuting to the Seattle Center/finding affordable parking, very strict attendance policy (but it is made clear), strict dress code

    Laser Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview was a power trip for the manager in charge. Passive aggressive and a no it all. It was hard to relax and present the best me that I could because of this. The interview was a joke, the panel of 2 people talked more about themselves being so good at the laser thing that it disgusted me.
