Intern (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 28, 2016
The Newseum was a great place to intern at. The people were very nice and easy to work with. Everyone wanted to help everyone else when they could. I learned a lot about how certain applications work and how much some foundations pay to keep their applications up and running smoothly. My supervisor was great. A very flexible person and a great teacher. Hardest part about the job was the traveling, because they did not offer a travel card. Most enjoyable part was going there to work on multiple projects at once and being able to go out for lunch with my coworkers.
Tour Guide (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 30, 2016
I never thought I would take such an interest in knowing more about the major events that have happened in the world. Management made it fun to work there. I loved to interact with my co-workers. Hardest part about the job is the down time when we didn't have a lot of guest. Most enjoyable is seeing the kids light up on the interactive floor.
It's right on Pennsylvania Avenue where a lot of celebrities come

The newseum is very popular for its exhibit. We received a lot of visitors and school children from different areas of the world. On occasions I've also had the pleasure to meet and/or see famous people. The newseum is an ever-changing work place that you have to roll with the punches and adapt to change. Overall the Newseum is a great place to learn as well as to work.

Retail Sales Associate-Gift Shop (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 13, 2016
Atypical day at work at the Newseum during the weekday can be very busy due to school field trips. but however, I loved to work in a busy atmosphere because it left no time for me to be bored while at work. I gained even more experince as a retail sales associate as far as working with the registers and bettering my customer service.
Productive and fun work place. Get to meet all kind of people around the world.
Admissions Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 14, 2015
I really like working here. We have a vast amount of customers from all over the world who come to visit us. This is a very unique place from all the other museums because we are the most interactive and have cool glass hydraulic elevators. I love my staff they are unique in their own way. This is a fast-paced environment that's ever-changing.
health care, leave, meeting new people, giving great customer service, etc

Create a positive customer experience by understanding and meeting service needs quickly, professionally and accurately while Maintaining client needs privacy and security.Provide safe entry & exit for all guests and visitors. Carry out regular patrolling of the museum and its surroundings. I have learned much about discipline and patience working as a security officer. the hardest part was standing on my feet for numerous hours on solid concrete. The most enjoyable part about the job was the after hour events and possibility of meeting someone iconic and memorable.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 10, 2014
Overall solid retail job, but as any such offers very little creative/brain usage opportunity. Keep the store running and the pay will be coming, albeit at a laughable rates during off-seasons. Job security is very solid.
