Special Police Officer (Former Employee) – 6th and Constitution Ave – July 21, 2015
Report to work at 2300 hrs. Draw equipment and report to post. Run patrols and receive and additional tasks. Some interior patrols required one hour which is the hardest part of the job. Majority of the time we were required to work alone but I had no problem with co-workers. Finding deficiencies and correcting was the most enjoyable part of the job.
The job provided us with cleaning services for our uniforms and shoes.

AOP Protection Service (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 19, 2015
My first job was in housekeeping cleaning out vacant apartments,upkeep in the building,a typical job,management was easy going,team effort.not really a hard job.Security is always ever changing,learning new laws,depending on the surroundings which also crosses over to the military which very demanding in their training which will always be part of me.
It was learning time to see how museum security works
Could have been more a training involved as for security aspects
I was shocked at the beauty of America's art exhibits.
Electrical/Custodial worker (Former Employee) – 6th and Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC – September 4, 2013
I joined that organization to complete enough time for a Federal Retirement, However; I was surprised at the insensitivity and callousness to which employees and Management failed to reach in not trying to communicate properly to achieve a positive goal. I participated in at least 4 section events within each duty, without safe adequate equipment to work with. Burnout was quick to come without the proper support, and I realized, that I was in the wrong place, No room for creativity, due diligence to work at your best.
agency offers a living wage, if able to work the hours
job works best if you make it first-living to work!
Agreat place to work and learn something new everyday
Marble mason Supervior/Foreman/Inspector (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 16, 2012
Work would start with checking e-mail for incident reports and review work and project schedules and morning shop meeting to give out and review work assignments and would perform building inspections for damages and water leaks and clean-ups after special events at the gallery and on the Mall such as parades and learned something new everyday either technical or about works of art and continue to improve on how to manage and management skills and work with all type of professionals and workers and Heads of state during visits of exhibits and hardest part of my job was being there for 38 years and achieving the level of success and wanting something or some were difference to provide the leadership and mentoring elsewhere and the most enjoyable was the teamwork and the under taking the vision that the employees had and performed at the level they did for so many years is and was a great thing.
Gallery Protection Officer (Current Employee) – washington dc – November 18, 2014
This is a place for people looking to retire in dc not suited for the youth. The upper management is so stuck in there ways and are not willing to change with the times to make it a comfortable place for all to work there. The building opens during bad storms while OPM deems it to be to dangerous to travel back and forth to work but we still have to be there. The customers are law to that building what they say goes and its just not a pleasure to deal with .
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 2, 2015

I also helped setting up photo shoots and did some administrative work. I also got to meet very interesting people with very interesting job positions such as mixing pigments for portrait restoration.
When I worked at the National Gallery of Art it was an international hub of brilliant, creative ideas.
