    1 hour lunch and dinner breaks, great coworkers,


    80+ hour weeks, expensive cafeteria, poor air quality, bad union contract, lack of union support, low pay, last minute work calls, work most holidays, sometimes no lunch or dinner(paid), strict work environment, little room for advancement.

    Interesting dynamic people. Fast paced and interesting. I mean it's the Met, it really is an honor to work there. Great health insurance.


    The union contracts are crushing the Met and because they took a minor cut during the last round of negotiations the Admin staff has to suffer too. Creates a venomous work environment.

    Creative environment, great perks to get tickets to the opera and good health benefits.


    Culture is somewhat clicky, pay is lower than average and work environment is very crowded.

    It was a great place to work until the Manager passed away

    Depending on your personality your coworkers are fun to work with the work environment is pretty laid back, very casual request days off as early as possible and 98%, it will be approved


    customer service pay $13.73/hour (inbound) The union is horrible, they are not in touch with what we really need nor do they care. they are more interested in getting that money under the table from the Met. During the winter, be prepared to wear your coat all day long..bring a scarf too!! supervisors are not in touch with each other or upper management so you will get 3 to 4 different answers depending on which supervisor you speak with. Your constantly learning something new to meet the customers needs but with a 20 cent raise i guess they could care less about our needs. Supervisors will talk down to you and call you out in front of the entire call center.. if you are applying to an outbound job, STAY AWAY!! that department has the fasted revolving door i have ever seen with little to no training provided and the pay is less than $9/hr
