Sales/Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 20, 2014
The work day was interesting. I would get to talk to many people from around the world. I helped them find gifts for themselves and others and choose tours to take This was the most enjoyable part of my day. I also merchandised some.My co workers were for the most part nice and easy going.
I found management to be a bit secretive, I think as a non profit they could be more open in what went on.
I learned a lot about my city and some things about architecture.
The docents and volunteers, which are a big part of the organization are pretty amazing people.
Pros
clean, safe, fun sometimes
Cons
secretive
