    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    There were interview parts we had to do. One part was puzzles. They split us into groups and gave us a puzzle to put together per group. After a while they started making the puzzle harder by taking the box away, then having us be silent, then putting our dominant arm behind our back. It all was to see how well we could communicate with each other under odd circumstances.
    Next part we had to act out a scene showing how we'd respond to various guest issues.
    Afterwards we discussed various parts of the exhibit and we asked whatever questions we had.
    Overall they just really wanted to see how well we communicated with one another.
