All for the kids...
Math Grants Coordinator (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches, helping children grow and learn, environment, culture
Cons: compensation, benefits, working weekends
This was a job where I basically cut my teeth where supervisory skills are concerned. Working with the Youth Exploring Science Program I was able to learn about employee management as well as time management. I gained experience in creating curriculum for children, which helped me understand development and management.

The best part of this job was the kids. I can say that all these years later, I still have a great rapport with some of them.

Abundant learning opportunities for personal enrichment
Gallery Assistant (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 4, 2013
Pros: great learning environment
Cons: reduction in staff, hours, benefits, opportunity to advance
It is no secret that the SLSC has cut staff in reaction to the prolonged economic recession. In spite of the hardships, the leadership is dedicated to bringing exciting new exhibits and enriching the experience for the visitors. There is great joy in sharing a love of science and inspiring visitors to become lifelong appreciators of the knowledge we have to share.

Open and fun environment
Supervisor (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 20, 2012
Pros: fun with kids, good pay
Cons: expensive lunches
I would start off and get prepared for the day by getting the projects together for the summer camps and youth groups. The kids taught me something new everyday by interacting with them and learning how to take on new experiences. My co-workers were very enjoyable to work with. A lot of team effort. The hardest part of the job was thinking of new activities everyday and the most enjoyable part of the job was working with the kids, teaching them new things, and seeing them smile.
