Wonderful learning experience
Intern with PopRally (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 24, 2013
I am learning a vast amount of information about the museum world and the art world in general. MoMA is an essential resource, teaching visitors about art and culture.

Love the Museum
Exhibition Budget Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 21, 2013
By far the best museum to work for in the country, probably due to the unionized employees. Very good environment.

A very fun and loving place to work
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 10, 2013
Pros: there was always food in the lunch area, very friendly people
Working in the Museum of Modern Art has been one of the best experiences yet. When ever I got to work, I was always greeted with smiles and hugs and everyone is just very pleasant to work with. I felt comfortable and happy. Even though the museum store can get extremely busy on a daily basis, that did not take away from our patient and friendly manner. The most important thing I learned working at the museum is team work makes the seemingly impossible possible. We all worked as one unit and as a result, we accomplished our goals for the day. The management at MoMA is of top quality. Everything is run smoothly and the manager works really hard with us to make sure that everything functions as how it should be, I would say that there was nothing difficult about the job. Every now and again, I would encounter a temperamental customer but the most important thing is to have a lot of patience and give the customer whatever he wants with a positive attitude.

you'll be proud to work there
Security Guard (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 13, 2013
Pros: it's moma!
Cons: weird breaks, foot pain from standing all day
Besides the aching feet, this is actually a great job. You get to meet people from all over. They throw parties for celebrities an it makes you feel proud just to a part of something so big. There's beautiful artwork (much of which I don't get). And the view from both inside and looking out makes you feel brand new. Now the co-workers are another story. But once you get settled in they seem to fade into the background. If you do decide to work there then you'd want to invest in a pair of "Rockport" shoes (you'll thank me later). 40 and 20 min breaks have you rushing to buy and stuff you lunch down your throat. And slow days seem to drive me nuts but you might enjoy just pacing around.

Fast and fun place
Security (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 22, 2012
A typical day would be consumed by helping people with their basic questions in regards the Museum amenities and what's on display. Working there I was able to learn a little of different languages based on the cultures that visited our location.

My co-workers were great to be around and the managment was great team to work with. My hardest part are really hard to say because every day was something new especially with the amount of artist who would come around.

A Very Productive And Fun Environment
Visitor Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 10, 2012
Greeting Tourist And Giving Directions On Navigating Through The Museum

People Are All The Same, It's Our Experience That Separates Us

Management Was Very Laid Back, Allowed Us To Make Own Judgment But Was Available For Guidance

Coworkers Are Very Friendly And Diverse

Staying Focused, It's Hard To Do When You Have 5000 Tourist Coming Up Asking Questions When English Is Not Their First Language

Being Able To Help A Tourist Enjoy Their Time At The Museum

no room for growth
Security Officer/ Front Desk (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 22, 2012
Pros: excellent pay great medical
Cons: long hours, short breaks, unreasonable schedule and rude management
If your looking to make money this is the place but you have to sacrifice your personal life. They don't care about your kids or well being. The physical stress along with the emotional toll is unbearable after a while. You only put up with it for the benifits and pay to survive in this economy. Many people end up fired and the union is garbage
