Admissions/Cashier (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 28, 2014
a typical day at work would be when i clock in i go to my supervisor who assigns us what booth we will be in that day i take my bag and count how much money is in the bag and than i walk to the booth sit at a register and turn it on than i take customers some are very nice and outgoing and some can be very rude but i know how to keep my composure, and be nice, and patient, and polite
i have learned to to be nice to everyone even when they are rude and to stay calm in mot situations because customers do tend to get irate and hostile and just to give excellent customer service
management is the bet because there are several complaints about certain supervisors from different coworkers that they seem to shrug off like it doesn't matter and sometimes a little bit of favoritism
my co-workers are great we work as team all the time when we need each others help and everyone is very friendly and outgoing and very fun people to be around
the hardest part of the job is when the festivals come around because there are a lot of customers meaning i am responsible for a lot of money but nothing to major that i cant handle
the most enjoyable part of the job is being able to meet so many new and interesting people who are funny and jolly and sweet
A beautiful memory. The only company that I would've retired from.
Garden and Sales Aide (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 21, 2013
At that time I was employed in the gift shop. I was taught purchasing skills and the care of plants. Management was secure in themselves and we all did our jobs without stress. All of the people employed at BBG are like family. The hardest part of the job was the long train ride. Just being there was enjoyable for me, every day.
It's a beautiful scientific research center/garden!!!
