Wonderful artwork, opportunity to work closely with the public, inspirational paintings & sculptures
Pros: art, fun co-workers, learning experience, exciting social events
Cons: short breaks, low pay, long hours, painful feet
My day starts at 9:00 when I've put on my uniform, received my section from dispatch, and went to get my post from whoever is my supervisor for that day.
I spend most of my day answering questions from the public from where to eat, location of specific artworks, bathrooms, and giving directions.
Hardest parts of my job are the being on my feet all day because I stand for eight hours on hard floors.
Most enjoyable part is having the opportunity to be up close and personal with the various types of art in the museum. I also get to see the special shows and exhibits when they're first on display.
