Fun workplace with fantastic coworkers that truly made work feel like home.
Theater Associate (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 19, 2014
Pros: free access to all museums in illinois and some nationwide.
Cons: short lunch break (30 min)
Although my time at The Field Museum has been rather short, I can safely say it was been the best work experience I've ever had. All my coworkers really made every day at work fun and easygoing, while still maintaining our daily tasks with efficiency and speed. We all meshed very well together, and I enjoyed coming to work every morning and greeting – more... my manager and supervisor. It truly felt like a family there and I wish I could work there indefinitely. – less

Research Assistant Intern
Research assistant intern (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: free museum access, great schedule, great manager
Cons: unpaid internship
Key responsibilities have been survey data entry, which requires extreme precision and focus. I learned that the process of data entry is iterative and that several rounds of data "cleaning" are required. I am proficient using excel and can troubleshoot easily. In my job you've been given a high level of independence and are trusted to communicate with – more... your supervisor about your progress and any issues that arise.

I also work part time as a bartender at a pub in the city. – less
