I worked at Houston Museum of Natural Science part-time (More than a year)

Pros

great job because of the access to the wonderful exhibits.

Cons

it is low pay with just above minimum wage, the museum schedule allows for only a few hours so overall no one can survive on that job alone unless they are a student that lives at home with their parents..

Advice to Management

stop gossiping too much.

    I have been working at Houston Museum of Natural Science full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You usually have a good chance of climbing the corporate ladder: the museum promotes from within. Every few months or so, you can expect to find a memo about a job opening in your employee mailbox in the breakroom, informing you of what positions are now open and how to apply.
    You have a chance to make good money on commission while you work in Visitor Services, too, especially in the Box Office.
    The training in VS involves doing a bit of everything: ushering in the Giant Screen Theater, selling tickets over the phone, telling visitors where to find the exhibits, checking visitors for butterfly escapees, taking ticket stubs...
    You decide your own schedule at least three times a year. You pick which shifts best suit you and that are available to you, and that schedule stays in place for 3-4 months at a time.

    Cons

    The turnover rate can be kinda high. Customers can be awful.
