Corporate Sales and Development Manager (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 17, 2014
A wonderful mission and non-profit organization to be apart of. However, through the retirement of key management and a strong will to change overal corporate culture. I am seeking an enviornment that is best suited to match my drive and passion, verses a relaxed and passive approach to important buisness issues and development.

A SHORT TERM POSITION
Telemarketing Supervisor (Former Employee), Boston, MAAugust 29, 2013
Pros: working for the new england aquarium was a contribution to something i believe is important.
Cons: leadership and supervisory support minimal.
Telemarketing Supervisor for Spring and Summer Annual Campaign.
Recruited, trained and supervised a team of fundraisers in support of the aquarium's environmental, educational and research programs. The position was fun and challenging. However, it was clear from the beginning that it was a "temporary" position. I heard from numerous staff that they – more... were converting the position into a data base admin position and would be outsourcing in the future.
At the end of the summer campaign they released me and indeed they converted the position and outsourced. (I got calls from them from time to time).

One issue is that at the time they used a database for fundraising called RAISER'S EDGE. They brought in a trainer for a few days and we had a whirlwind tour of the system. I never truly became proficient in it beyond basics. – less

Box Office Cashier/Host (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 8, 2013
I loved working at the NEAQ, it was probably one of the best jobs I have ever had. No matter what your job title is, it's like you're a part of a family. Everyone knows everyone and regardless if you're cleaning toilets or checking PH levels, you will leave knowing a ton more about aquatic life than when you first came in. I met some of the best people – more... while working there and it was unfortunate that I was not able to work there anymore. – less

Volunteer position
Senior Volunteer (Current Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 4, 2013
Pros: enjoying time with the penguins
Cons: hard to land a job
Initial time commitment required, very flexible after that. Excellent staff and friendly volunteers. Very hard to move into a paid position due to interest and a very low turn over on job openings.

Best place Ive worked
Teen Intern (Former Employee), Boston, MANovember 13, 2012
I loved working at the aquarium the people that you would meet everyday were everyday people. Got to work with children and teach people about what you knew. You were the teacher at the aquarium not the other way around. It was a way for me to share my knowledge with the people around me. The management and the Co-workers were awesome people outgoing – more... and understanding as well as very helpful when you had a question! – less

Reservationist/Senior Cashier (Former Employee), Boston, MAOctober 7, 2012
I served as a Cashier/IMAX theater host for Box Office as well as a Reservationist in Reservations over a span of two years. Daily, I engaged dozens if not hundreds of culturally diverse tourists working at the Aquarium. There is never a dull moment at this place. The Box Office management is a professional team and they make it a fun environment to – more... work in. – less

Head Cashiers for 5 snack bars (Former Employee), Boston, MASeptember 27, 2012
Pros: always meet ne people, families, school groups...etc.
Cons: having to report money issues to management sometimes.
A typical day would start by taking inventory of all the food for the day, followed by counting and distributing the cash drawers to the cashiers. Once opened for business, I'd go back and forth between the snack bars and make sure everything was running smoothly. I would help the co-workers or cover lunches / breaks when needed. At the end of the day, – more... all the drawers were tallied up again and reports were presented to management. The hardest part of the job was having to ask cashiers to explain unacceptable negative or overage in the cash drawers. – less
