    Pros

    Membership perks as long as you work there

    Cons

    Very hectic and stressful at time. Class sizes were very large (25 kids to 2 teachers).

    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.
